Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 c
each - chopped nuts & chopped, maraschino cherries - drained well
1/3 c
evaporated milk
1 1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
flaked
coconut & chopped nuts for rolling - i use both

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, over low heat - melt chocolate in the milk.
2
Once melted add the confectioners' sugar and whisk until smooth. Fold in the cherries and nuts.

Chill until cool enough to roll in balls, not so stiff that the coconut and nuts won't stick. You want them a little sticky.
3
Have nuts and coconut ready. I spread each on paper plates.

I use about a 1 inch cookie scoop for the size of the balls.

Roll into balls and roll in nuts or coconut or both.

Chill well.

When not eating, keep them chilled as well.
