INSTRUCTIONS:  Chocolate Covered Cherries Recipe

Combine sifted powdered sugar, butter, sweetened condensed milk, and moonshine until well blended and smooth. (It is best to use a handheld mixer here) Place in fridge until firm.

Meanwhile, spread out the drained cherries on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least 1 hour.

When ready to assemble, scoop out about 1-2 teaspoon of filling and form into a ball around frozen cherry. (If your filling does not seem thick enough, you can add up to 1/2 cup more of powdered sugar.)

Then, Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour after you have formed them all.

Melt bittersweet chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute, stir, then heat in 15-second increments until smooth. Using a fork, dip each chilled filling covered cherry in warm chocolate. Shake until excess chocolate is removed.

Set on the parchment lined cookie sheet and chill in the fridge until chocolate is solid.

Best served chilled.
