One thing that I have been remiss in mentioning this Christmas has been anything with Cherries. How dare me! One of the fun foods to have are the Chocolate Cherry Drops. A lot of ingredients (yes, the majority is chocolate) and the taste is amazing.

Ingredients:
1 cup chocoalte graham cracker crumbs
1 cup mini chocolate chips (i like the milk chocolate)
3/4 cup butter cookies crumbs
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup dark corn syrup (dark karo)
1/2 cup fudge frosting (i use betty crocker)
1 tsp vanilla
large bag of dried cherries (you will need between 70 and 80 cherries depending on size balls you roll)
powdered sugar for rolling the balls in (you can also use cocoa)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl stir together graham crumbs, cookie crumbs and mini chips.
  2. Add corn syrup, fudge frosting and vanilla. Using hands knead until all ingredients come together.
  3. Shape into balls (I make mine about one inch round) then press two dried cherries into the center of each and reshape to make sure cherries are covered.
  4. Roll balls in a bowl filled with powdered sugar or cocoa (we prefer powdered sugar)
