Still making Christmas goodies for the holiday party and friends. This candy came from my Blue Ribbon cake, CHERRY SMASHED CAKE.
I love the cherry delight in each little bite.
Yippie done and made a big hit with the hubby as I have said before he is the inspiration behind the Cherry Smashed Cake because of his love of Chocolate covered cherries. Now I can sure say these are tested and passed the test. If hubby is happy I am too.
Just imagine your guest at the Christmas parties biting down on one of these little goodies ummm loaded with each bite of sure haven.

Ingredients

CHERRY SMASHED CANDY

2
2 pound bags of confectioners sugar
1 can(s)
bordens eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp
amaretto liqueur
1 Tbsp
maraschino cherry juice drained from the jar
2 jar(s)
10 oz. size maraschino cherries drained from the juice no stem
1 stick

CANDY BARK OF YOUR CHOICE TO MELT AND DIP BALLS IN

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large mixing bowl add the 2 bags of confectioners sugar then add in the condensed milk. Also add in the butter .
2
I used a hand mixer but first gave it a good stir with a spoon to mix in the sugar before using the electric mixer so the sugar would not go all over the counter and me.
3
Drain the cherry well then crush in a food processor or mini chopper, add to the mixture
4
Add the liquerur and cherry juice then begin to mix well and make sure it is stiff. If it is not add some more sugar till it stiffs up enough to make a ball. Place the mixture in the refrigerator till hardend enough to work with.
5
Pinch off some candy mixture and roll in the palm of your hand to make a ball. Place on pan and place back in the fridge
ge till good and cold a couple of hours will be necessary to be able to dip in the hot chocolate
6
In a candy melt machine I melted the bark and dipped the balls one at a time placed on parchment paper and put back in the fridge and left all night. Place in a airtight container and keep refrigerated till use of them.
