Recipe for Chocolate Covered Brandied Cherries


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


1. Pour brandy over drained cherries; let set for 2 days. 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. 3. 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. 4. 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.
