1/2 C. milk
4 T. margarine
2, 3 oz. packages vanilla pudding (do no use instant)
9 oz. jar maraschino cherries
1 C. finely chopped nuts
1-2 lbs. powdered sugar
1 lb. chocolate melts
ready-made frosting in tubes (from the market)
Drain cherries well. Cut cherries in half, let dry while preparing the rest.
Heat milk, butter and pudding over medium-low heat until mixture has thickened, stir constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the cherries and nuts. Add enough sugar until mixture is stiff. Shape into eggs (Coat your hands in butter to make the process easier.) Place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Chill until firm, several hours.
Melt chocolate. Quickly dip eggs in chocolate to coat. Let chocolate harden. Decorate eggs with icing, if desired.
