CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES

Drain large jar maraschino cherries. Put them between paper towels to dry them well. Mix together well: 1 can Eagle Brand milk 1 stick soft butter 1 tsp. vanilla Cover cherries with cream mixture and place in refrigerator to chill. Melt 1 (12 ounce) package of chocolate chips and 1/2 bar of paraffin wax in top of double boiler. Dip the chilled cherries into chocolate and then place on cookie sheet to harden. (HINT: Use 2 forks to dip the cherries into chocolate.) Store in refrigerator or freeze in plastic zip-lock bags




Here is a recipe close to the one I used and it isn't that hard to make ! Enjoy ! Hint Double Dip them in the Chocolate !

I am going to toot my own Horn here , I made Chocolate Covered Cherries for President Jimmy Carter Years ago when he was President like 1978 , I moved here from Iowa I lost most of what I had Recipes were one of the big things. So its a Believe Me or Not ! However it is the Truth !

Pinch of Black Pepper !

Thank-you Maidrite!!! I was so hoping that you would post a recipe! No CCCs (chocolate covered cherries) to be found in these parts and I wanted to find a recipe and make some for DH as part of the Christmas spread! Both the recipe (which I love even more because it is booze-free) and your story are very cool, thanks again James!
