    Categories: Candy, Booze, Fruits, Chocolate
    Yield: 50 Servings

    50 Maraschino cherries; drained
    3/4 c Brandy
    3 tb Butter
    3 tb White corn syrup
    1/4 ts Salt
    2 c Confectioners sugar; sifted
    1 1/2 lb Dipping chocolate

    Pour brandy over drained cherries; let set for 2

    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.
