Chocolate Covered Cherries
16 oz. package powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1 tablespoon evaporated milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 10 oz. jars maraschino cherries, with or without stems, drained
12 oz. chocolate flavored candy coating
6 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
Blend together sugar, butter, evaporated milk and vanilla. Wrap each cherry in about 1 teaspoon sugar mixture. Arrange on wax paper in a baking pan and chill overnight. Melt together candy coating and chocolate chips in a double boiler, stirring just until melted and blended. Use a candy dipper to dip cherries in chocolate, tapping off excess. Place on wax paper to cool. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.
These are very good.
