Chocolate-Covered Cherries

Chocolate covered cherries are a delicious gift to give your sweetheart for Valentine's day. This simple recipe allows you to make them yourself.




  • maraschino cherries
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups marshmallow creme
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • dash salt
  • 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Chocolate Coating:

  • 1 small pkg. chocolate chips
  • 1/16 lb. paraffin


  1. Drain maraschino cherries about 1 hour before covering.
  2. Mix remaining filling ingredients in a bowl and place in refrigerator until firm. If mixture is sticky; add powdered sugar.
  3. Melt coating ingredients over double boiler and keep over water while dipping. Once firm, remove filling from refrigerator. Make a small patty, place a maraschino cherry in the center, and roll into a ball. Chill until firm.
  4. Dip covered cherries in chocolate, using a toothpick.

Note: Paraffin wax comes in 1 lb. package. Each pound has 4 (1/4 lb.) pieces. Use 1/4 of 1 section. It is also very flammable and can cause burns if it gets on your skin.
