Cherry Cordials

2 lbs powder sugar
1 cube melted butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 gallon jar of maraschino cherries (from Costco) drained (remove stem if desired)
dipping chocolate

In a bowl drain the cherries and remove stem if desired. In a different bowl mix the powder sugar, melted butter and condensed milk into a “paste”. Take a pinch, pat it flat, then wrap around cherries. Use a bowl of powder sugar to powder your fingers as you work – it helps with the sticky mess. Once all cherries are wrapped freeze them for 24 hours (or longer if you don’t have time to take care of them the next day) Melt chocolate over a double boiler then dip the cherries, make sure ALL of it is covered in chocolate so the goo doesn’t ooze out. place them on waxed paper. Once chocolate is set store in an air tight container (like the jar the cherries first came in!) wait at least 4 days before eating so the “wrap” goos
