Here’s what you’re going to need to make your own Dipped Cherry Treats:
- 1 jar maraschino cherries
- 1 cup sprinkle candy melts
- 1 Tablespoons shortening or coconut oil, optional
- 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Discard the syrup from the jar of maraschino cherries and dry the cherries on paper kitchen towel for 10 minutes.
Place the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 45 seconds. Stir well and reheat for an additional 25 seconds, as needed.
Depending on the brand of candy melts, you may need to stir in some shortening or coconut oil to loosen up the candy melts.
Holding a cherry by the stem, dip the cherry into the melted candy melts and rotate to achieve your desired candy coating.
Let any excess candy melts drip off and then dip the wet candy-coated cherry into the sprinkles.
Place the cherry on the lined cookie sheet and repeat with all cherries.
Let the candy melts on the cherries set for 2 hours or overnight before storing or serving.
This truly is the EASIEST and QUICKEST treat you can make! Pop them into the freezer and it makes it an even sweeter treat!
There’s something about a frozen cherry that is irresistible!
