Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries
Makes 5 to 6 dozen

2 lb sifted powdered sugar,
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. almond extract
2 to 3 large jars maraschino cherries
additional powdered sugar
1 lb semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 block of paraffin, shredded, (like cheese)

Drain maraschino cherries well on paper towels. Cream together
sifted powdered sugar, margarine and condensed milk. Add almond
extract. Mold this mixture in small amounts around the dried
cherries to create a layer which entirely envelopes the cherry.
Dip hands in powdered sugar to make easier when molding mixture
around cherries. Place balls on a cookie sheet and freeze for at
least 45 minutes.

Make the cover mixture of: chocolate chips and shredded paraffin.
Microwave 5 minutes on high, stirring every minute to keep chocolate
from burning. This can be reheated in microwave if gets too thick.
Use a sharp toothpick to hold cherries to dip. Be sure to dip the
other side of cherry to cover the hole from the toothpick so you
don't lose any filling. Place on another cookie sheet on wax paper.
Let sit overnight.
