Take a look around the grocery store or candy shop at Christmas time and you're sure to see boxes and boxes of chocolate-covered cherries. Sure, anybody can pick up a box of 'em as a last-minute gift, but what if I told you I had an easy recipe to make your own - and they're tastier than the rest? Here it is, and arranged on a pretty plate, these cherries sure do make a super-looking gift!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup (stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 (10 ounces) jar stemmed maraschino cherries, well drained
  • 1 (11 ounces) package milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
What To Do:
  1. Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
     
  2. In small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, and milk; mix until stiff dough forms. Shape dough evenly around each cherry and place on baking sheet. Freeze 15 minutes, or until firm.
     
  3. In small saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat until smooth. Remove coated cherries from freezer and dip each into the chocolate mixture, coating completely.
     
  4. Return to baking sheet and chill for 1 hour, or until chocolate is firm. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
Notes

These can also be covered in white or semisweet chocolate and, for an added touch, after dipping them in chocolate, drizzle them with a different color chocolate.
