Cordial Cherries – Sara - March 2010 Gooey Center

I’m a fan of Cordial Cherries! This was the perfect time to try them out.

What you’ll need to make 10:

Powdered Sugar – 1/3 cup

Butter – 1 ½ tsp

Corn Syrup – 1 ½ tsp

Marachino Cherries - 10

Chocolate Coating

Here’s the recipe¨ - you can adjust your serving size

Dry the cherries out on a paper towel.

Knead the butter, powdered sugar, and corn syrup together into a little ball.

I didn’t have the cherries with the stems on them, so I stuck toothpicks in them so it would be easier to dip them after they cooled. Then you kind of wrap about a tsp of the dough around each cherry.

Let them cool for about an hour in the fridge or freezer. Then dip them in melted chocolate coating. After the initial dip, I let them cool for a bit and then took out toothpicks and dipped the hole back into melted chocolate to camouflage the hole.

Finally, I drizzled them with white chocolate and then sat them aside for about a week. I KNOW! A whole week to wait until the get nice and gooey. But, it was worth it :)


  1. WOW! I've done chocolate straight on maraschinos, but never with the dough between. Beautiful with the drizzled white chocolate. Nicely done!

  2. Those look... like cordial cherries. If I liked them, I'm sure they would look delicious. :)

  3. And I realize that sounded jerkier than it should have.. I don't mean to be jerky. They look lovely. I just hate maraschino cherries.
