Easy Chocolate-Covered Cherries Recipe: Homemade Chocolate Cherries Recipe for Valentine's Day

We think that special someone needs some homemade chocolate-covered cherries for Valentine's Day. This easy chocolate-covered cherries recipe has a sweet, solid filling, not a liquid center like some have. They are delicious!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 3 hours
Cook Time: 2 - 3 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours
Servings: Makes approximately 60


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Stir together the powdered sugar, butter, milk and vanilla. Knead the mixture until smooth. Shape into 1-inch balls, then flatten into 2-inch circles.
  2. Wrap the dough circle around a cherry, leaving the stem exposed. Place on a baking sheet that's covered with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining dough and cherries. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours.
  3. Combine the chocolate and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. 
  4. Hold the stem of the cherries and dip into the chocolate, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Put back on the parchment paper and let sit until set.
