    Title: Amish Chocolate Covered Cherries
    Categories: Five, Fruits, Chocolate
    Yield: 25 Servings

    1 oz Jar maraschino cherries w/
    - stems; juice reserved
    4 c Powdered sugar
    4 tb Salted butter; softened
    16 oz Semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Drain the cherries, reserving the juice. Let dab the
    cherries gently with a paper towel so that they are as
    dry as possible. Set them aside on paper towels to
    continue to dry while you prepare the sugar filling.

    In a medium size bowl, mix 3 cups powdered sugar, butter
    and 1/4 cup cherry juice together. Add in the last cup
    of powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until the mixture
    forms a soft dough. Refrigerate the dough for 20

    Roll the dough into 1" balls. Make small balls, about 1"
    in diameter. Flatten the dough balls between the palms
    of your hands, dusting your hands with powdered sugar if
    necessary. Fold the dough over the cherry to completely
    cover it, then roll it into smooth ball again.

    Refrigerate the covered cherries for 20 minutes. Melt
    the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.*
    Holding the cherry by the stem, dip it in the melted
    chocolate and allow the excess to drip off. Place the
    chocolate covered cherry on a baking pan that has been
    covered with wax paper. Repeat with the remaining

    Allow the chocolate to set completely before storing the
    cherries in an airtight container.

    * Be sure to melt the chocolate slowly or over low heat.
    If chocolate gets too hot, it will seize up and become
    unusable. If using a double boiler, allow the water in
    the bottom pan to steam, but not come to a full boil. If
    you're melting the chocolate in the microwave, melt in
    about 20-30 second increments, stirring between each

    ** If the chocolate is too thick for dipping, add a
    tablespoon or two of shortening to the warm chocolate
    and stir until it is melted. This will thin the
