Recipe Ingredients:

2 (10-ounce) jars maraschino cherries, with stems
1 (12-ounce) package milk or semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions:

  1. Drain cherries; discard juice or use for another purpose. Put cherries on paper towels to dry completely.
  2. Put chocolate chips in a medium saucepan with a heavy bottom. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Dip cherries into chocolate; swirl to coat completely. Place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate until set.

Makes 5 dozen.


  • If desired, dip some of the cherries in melted white chocolate chips instead.
  • The chocolate can also be melted in the microwave. Start with 1 minute then continue at 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until completely melted.
