How to Make Chocolate Covered Cherries

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain cherries on paper towel for several hours or overnight.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the softened butter and light corn syrup.
  3. Stir in powdered sugar; knead until mixture is smooth.
  4. Shape about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar mixture around each cherry.
  5. Place the coated cherries on a parchment lined baking sheet: chill.
  6. Melt the dipping chocolate and add shortening.
  7. Holding the cherries by the stems, dip the cherries into the melted chocolate.
  8. Be sure to completely seal the cherries in chocolate; otherwise, cherry juice may leak out.
  9. Chill until chocolate is firm.
  10. Place cherries in an airtight container and let them ripen in the fridge for 1-2 weeks before serving.
  11. Ripening is necessary to allow powdered sugar mixture around the cherries to do soften and liquefy.
  12. Store in refrigerator.
