Chocolate Cherry Cordials
  • Drain cherries but reserve 1 ¼ cups of the drained cherry liquid in a small saucepan, and bring it to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup liqueur (optional). Gently add the cherries to the saucepan and let it soak overnight.
  • Remove cherries and place on paper towels to dry. Get them as as dry as possible.
  • Mix softened butter and corn syrup in a small bowl. When well mixed, stir in sifted confectioners’ sugar.
  • Knead mixture until smooth. If mixture is too soft to handle, put it in the refrigerator to chill well.
  • Shape about ½ teaspoon of the confectioners’ sugar mixture around each cherry.
  • Place the coated cherries upright on a heavy weight dipping sheet, and place into the refrigerator to chill and firm up.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Do not let the water touch the bottom of the double boiler. Only let the water simmer.
  • Do not allow it to boil or you may burn the chocolate.
  • Holding cherries by the stem, dip one at a time into the chocolate. Be sure to completely seal the cherries, otherwise the cherry juice may leak out after the chocolate has set.
  • Let excess chocolate drip off cherries, and place the dipped cherries stem side up on sheet of parchment paper. Place in the fridge to chill until the chocolate is firm.
  • Seal in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
