I have been under the weather for a few days and have used the down time to organize my fall and winter recipes into a nice little binder I have decEveryone loved them, so they have become part of our traditional cookie making extraveganza each year since. These are truly a sweet treat that will be enjoyed by all.

How to Make Chocolate Cherry Balls


  1. In a large bowl stir together graham crumbs, cookie crumbs and mini chips.
  2. Add corn syrup, fudge frosting and vanilla. Using hands knead until all ingredients come together.
  3. Shape into balls (I make mine about one inch round) then press two dried cherries into the center of each and reshape to make sure cherries are covered.
  4. Roll balls in a bowl filled with powdered sugar or cocoa (we prefer powdered sugar)
