Chocolate Covered Cherries Recipe

By: Meredith, posted online here.
“Easy, delicious cherries. Just like you buy in the box!!! It’s best to let the candies ripen for 1 to 2 weeks.”


  • 60 maraschino cherries with stems
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 pound chocolate confectioners’ coating


  1. Drain cherries and set on paper towels to dry.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine butter and corn syrup until smooth. Stir in confectioners’ sugar and knead to form a dough. Chill to stiffen if necessary. Wrap each cherry in about 1 teaspoon of dough. Chill until firm.
  3. Melt confectioners’ coating in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Dip each cherry in by its stem, and place on waxed paper lined sheets. Chill until completely set. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Best after 1 or 2 weeks.

Food Network: Chocolate Covered Cherries Recipe

By: Semi-Home Cooking with Sandra Lee, posted online here.


  • 40 maraschino cherries with stems (packed in very heavy syrup), drained well
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) white chocolate morsels


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Pat cherries dry with paper towels.

Melt chocolates separately in stainless steel bowl set over pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth.

Holding stem of cherry, dip cherry into melted chocolate to coat. You can coat half of cherry in white chocolate and half in semisweet chocolate, if desired. Transfer chocolate-dipped cherry to prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining cherries and melted chocolate.

Refrigerate for about 40 minutes, or until set.
