The Recipe that we chose for Today is a new recipe that I found on Kraft.com. We made them for the Youth Party last night and they were a big hit...
Marshmallow Cherry Kisses
what you need:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
16 maraschino cherries with stems
16 JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
To Make It:
MELT chocolate in small saucepan on low heat, stirring occasionally. Place in small bowl; cool slightly. Meanwhile, drain cherries and thoroughly pat dry (I drained mine on paper towels over night).
MAKE indentation in each marshmallow with your finger, then insert 1 of the cherries into the hole, leaving 1/3 of the stem end of the cherry exposed. Using a fork to support the bottom of the marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, turning to evenly coat the cherry. Gently shake off excess chocolate. By doing it like the recipe says, you actually cover the whole cherry.
I wanted mine to look like the picture (you know me... follow the picture, don't stop and read the recipe) Anyway, I dipped my marshmallow and placed it on the wax paper and while the choloclate was still wet I pushed the cheery in it... and voila'! They looked just like the picture.
PLACE on wax paper-covered baking sheet; cover. Refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
