Step 1

Mix cream, butter and vanilla together in a bowl. Add powdered sugar, a little at a time, until all is used.

Step 2

Form mixture into balls around cherries.

Step 3

Melt chocolate in pan on low heat. Dip covered cherries into melted chocolate. Place on wax paper and allow to cool.


Original recipe called for cake paraffin, but that sounded wrong so we didn't include it. Also, it may be better to first place the wax paper on a cookie sheet, then put the candy in the fridge to cool faster.
