Cherry Cordials

Cherry Cordials

Cherry Cordials

1 20oz jar of maraschino cherries
1 12 oz pkg dark chocolate candy melts
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup white karo
1/4 tsp almond extract

Drain cherries on paper towel  Melt candy melts in microwave for 1 minute.  Stir & microwave in 1/2 minute increments til it's hot enough to put in candy molds. I used a flexible mini muffin pan & put a little chocolate in each well.  I used a paint brush to paint up the sides. About half of the chocolate will be left.  Put in refrigerator til set.  

Mix powdered sugar, butter, karo & extract into a dough.  Take about a teaspoon of mixture & wrap around a cherry.  Put in set chocolate & cover with the rest of the melted chocolate & put back in refrigerator to set again. 

After set, pop out of pan & store in air tight container for 1 week til center liquifies.  

Makes 24 candies. 

I had to test drive not liquified of course but the taste is good.  Excited to taste next week.  

The picture is my prettiest three.  The others look ok but have a little excess chocolate.  Finesse soon.
