How to make it

  • Drain cherries, pat dry on paper towels and set aside.
  • Beat butter, corn syrup, and salt together well
  • Stir in icing sugar and knead until smooth (mixture will be very stiff)
  • Shape 1/2 tsp of sugar mixture around each cherry
  • Place on wax paper and place in freezer until cherries are firm
  • Melt chocolate chips and shortening
  • Dip each cherry in chocolate and place on wax paper lined baking sheet
  • Chill until firm and store in fridge.
  • NOTE- The cherries take about 2 weeks for their centers to get soft once out of the fridge
