    Categories: Five, Fruits, Chocolate, Booze
    Yield: 50 Cherries

    40 oz Maraschino cherries w/stems;
    - drained
    1 3/4 c Spiced rum; to cover the
    - cherries
    1 1/2 c Dark chocolate
    1 ts Shortening; opt
    1/2 c Sanding sugar

    Drain the cherries, reserving the juice for another
    purpose. It will not be used in this recipe but is great
    for cocktails and more.

    Place the cherries in a quart-sized mason jar or other
    container. Cover completely with spiced rum. Seal and
    refrigerate for at least 24 hours, up to 72 hours. The
    longer the cherries sit in the rum, the stronger they
    will taste.

    Next, drain the rum-soaked cherries. Keep this
    cherry-infused rum. It is SO good for cocktails. Place
    the cherries on layers of paper towels for 10 minutes.
    This step ensures that the chocolate coating will cling
    to the fruit.

    Line a tray or platter with parchment paper. Place the
    decorative sugar into a shallow dish or bowl.

    Melt the dark chocolate according to package directions.
    Use a small bowl that is deep enough to dip the cherries

    If the chocolate is too thick, stir in about a teaspoon
    of shortening until melted and the chocolate is smooth.

    While the chocolate is warm, dip the cherries one at a
    time. First dip into the chocolate then into the sugar.

    Place the dipped cherries onto the prepared parchment.
    When done dipping all of the cherries, refrigerate until
