ingredients

50 maraschino cherries, drained
3/4 cup brandy
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons white corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
1 1/2 pound dipping chocolate

directions

Pour brandy over drained cherries; let set for 2 days.

Combine butter, corn syrup and salt; blend until smooth. Add sifted powdered sugar and mix well. Knead until smooth and shiny; chill for 1/2 hour wrapped in waxed paper.

While chilling, drain cherries well on paper towels; pat dry. Reserve brandy marinade for cakes or cooking.

Shape a marble-sized piece of fondant around each cherry; place on waxed paper-lined tray. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.

Melt chocolate a small amount at a time. Dip cherries and place back on wax paper-lined tray. Place in refrigerator to set. Store in covered container in cool dark place for 10 - 14 days to fully ripen.

Everyone I have ever given these too wants the recipe and can't stop eating them. Get more potent the longer they sit too.
