Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries

2 Comments

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds sifted powdered sugar,
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 to 3 large jars maraschino cherries
  • additional powdered sugar
  • 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 block of paraffin, shredded, (like cheese)
Instructions

Makes 5 to 6 dozen. Drain maraschino cherries well on paper towels. Cream together sifted powdered sugar, margarine and condensed milk. Add almond extract. Mold this mixture in small amounts around the dried cherries to create a layer which entirely envelopes the cherry. Dip hands in powdered sugar to make easier when molding mixture around cherries. Place balls on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least 45 minutes. Make the cover mixture of: chocolate chips and shredded paraffin. Microwave 5 minutes on high, stirring every minute to keep chocolate from burning. This can be reheated in microwave if gets too thick. Use a sharp toothpick to hold cherries to dip. Be sure to dip the other side of cherry to cover the hole from the toothpick so you don't lose any filling. Place on another cookie sheet on wax paper. Let sit overnight.

@jamaika 3512330, Yes, it is edible and is often added to chocolates to add a nice, glossy finish. It also helps it remain solid at room temperature. It's important to recognize, however, that paraffin is flammable when overheated, so please warm it gently in a double-boiler or microwave only to the point where it is melted. Additionally, some paraffin is not intended to be ingested, such as that sold for candlemaking, so please be sure to check the label. --editors of RecipeLion
