Make: Chocolate Covered Cherries


You will need: cherries1

20 oz Maraschino Cherries (approximately)
4 oz of margarine
4 tbs of maple syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 3/4 lbs of powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups of Merckens Cocoa Lite wafers

Begin Making:

  1. Melt margarine into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Combine and mix margarine, maple syrup, condensed milk, and powdered sugar. Be sure the mixture is smooth in texture before preparing cherries.

  3. Roll cherries individually into balls with your mixture.

  4. After all your cherries have been rolled into balls, set them in a tray to cool in the refrigerator. This should take approximately one and a half or two hours for them to completely set.

  5. Melt the Merckens chocolate wafers and dip the cherry balls into the chocolate. The easiest way to do this is by using a table spoon for dropping balls into the mixing bowl.

  6. Place each chocolate covered cherry onto parchment paper for them to set.

  7. Place the cherries into the refrigerator again for at least another hour. The longer your cherries remain in cooler temperatures, the more soft they will be to bite into.

**Due to the condensation in the refrigerator, these treats will need to remain stored in cooler temperatures**
