Chocolate Covered Cherries

7 ingredients
50 servings
I make these every year for Christmas goodies and my husband hides them from everybody! They take about two weeks for the centers to get soft. This is a Southern Living recipe that's at least 20 years old. When you buy the cherries check the servings in the jar. You need 50 cherries, give or take a few.
