Oooh, Verlee.....thanks so much for posting the recipe!! They sound heavenly!!!! Love chocolate covered cherries and always buy  boxes of them for family gifts for Christmas. Homemade is sure a lot better tasting though!! Will give these a try!!! Thank you, thank you for sharing!!!

Wow, Julie....that sounds like a very special recipe book indeed....especially with the handwritten notes.

Nothing's as good as homemade, John, and I'm sure we are all grateful to Verlee for sharing her family recipe with her VBB family!!!

I miss Aldi's down here in SC.  Lived in NY before and enjoyed their sensible pricing, especially the produce.

Maxine - yesterday the super nice (and expensive) store in my neighboring town had marachinos - 4 10.oz bottles for $5.  I was surprised and absolutely thrilled.  
Because of their expense I've been buying one jar on each trip to buy groceries at WalMart so I have an enormous collection.  lol lol
Now I have even more!

I live in Southern California and we don't have Aldi's. I bought my cherries at Target this year. They were $1.60 for 10 oz. jar. The only problem was that some of the cherries were really small, and some were a decent size. Something to check for when buying next year.

In Response to Re: chocolate covered cherries - HERE'S THE RECIPE FINALLY!:
Sorry for the delay, everyone. Here you go! Chocolate Covered Cherries 1/3 c. butter, softened 1/3 c. white corn syrup 1/4 tsp. vanilla dash salt 3 1/2 c. powdered sugar 2 - 14 oz. jars maraschino cherries, drained well 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate squares 5 oz. semisweet chocolate squares 1 tbsp. paraffin wax, grated Beat butter, syrup, vanilla and salt together in mixer. Add sugar all at once. Work in the sugar. (I use the mixer with the dough hook to mix in the sugar.) Turn dough out of bowl and knead until smooth. This will be really thick, but the more you work it in, the smoother it gets. Take about a teaspoon size of dough (depends on the size of the cherries) and by rolling it in the palm of your hand, make into ball about size of walnut. Enclose cherry in it by flattening dough into your palm and rolling it around cherry. Chill cherries at least 2 hours or overnight. CHOCOLATE: Melt chocolate squares and wax in double boiler. Dip chilled cherries in chocolate, rolling to coat. (Remove cherries quickly from the chocolate.) Place on waxed paper lined pan. Chill until firm. Store in refrigerator, or else chocolate will 'separate.' Makes between 40 - 50 candies. If you are giving these away, I like to present them in small paper baking cups, the kind that are used for mini muffins. Or you can purchase candy wrappers. These may sound difficult but they really aren't. Once you make your first batch or two you'll get the hang of it. NOTE: vary the chocolate amounts according to personal taste. If you like more bitter chocolate, increase the amount of bittersweet and decrease the semisweet, and vice versa.

Nothing in my oven today. Made chili and will be having some soon. Tomorrow my daughter does her prep for surgery. Has to drink that liquid stuff on top of certain liquids every hour. Have done that for other test and she is all set. My granddaughter set up the games for her and she will be close to the bathroom in her bedroom. I know she is anxious.

My Navy son was home for 4 days over Thanksgiving and was DELIGHTED that I had the cherries ready for him to take back to base and share with his buddies. I also sent some of the other candies and baked goods that I had ready. He has an extra busy schedule over the next 3 weeks and it's nice to know he can have treats when he does get home!!

My first two batches were for family only which was good because they critiqued me on taste & presentation.  I got better after that & gave away to the girls in the office who help me all year
