How to Make Cherry Mash Candy
- Mix all ingredients with mixer til well-blended. Roll into desired size balls. I suggest small ones since this is a very rich candy and the chocolate coat will add some size, also. Chill thoroughly
- Melt chocolate chips with parafin. Stir til well-blended. Mix in peanuts.
- Dip chilled cherry balls into mixture, reheating chocolate if it begins to harden. Chill thoroughly til set. Enjoy!
