  • 60 maraschino cherries with stems
    3 tablespoons butter, softened
    3 tablespoons corn syrup
    2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
    1 pound chocolate confectioners' coating

    Drain cherries and set on paper towels to dry.
    In a medium bowl, combine butter and corn syrup until smooth. Stir in confectioners' sugar and knead to form a dough. Chill to stiffen if necessary. Wrap each cherry in about 1 teaspoon of dough. Chill until firm.
    Melt confectioners' coating in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Dip each cherry in by its stem, and place on waxed paper lined sheets. Chill until completely set. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Best after 1 or 2 weeks
