Chocolate-covered Brandied Cherries
50 maraschino cherries, drained
3/4 cup brandy
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons white corn syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1½ pounds dipping chocolate - white or dark
Pour brandy over drained cherries; let sit for two days.
Combine butter, salt and corn syrup; blend until smooth. Add
powdered sugar and mix well. Knead until smooth and shiny; chill 1/2
hour wrapped in waxed paper.
While chilling, drain cherries and reserve brandy marinade for
another use, if desired. Shape a marble-sized piece of the fondant
around each cherry; place on wax-paper lined tray. Chill about 2
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring constantly. Dip the
cherries and place on wax paper-lined tray. Place in refrigerator to
set. Store in a covered container in a cool dark place, to ripen,
for 10-14 days.
From Shanny: An alternate dipping mixture is 12 oz. chocolate chips
melted together with 1/3 bar of paraffin. Or just use almond bark.
