Marzipan , chocolate , cherries and not just any cherries . These Cherries have been soaked in brandy to make these little gems the perfect gift for someone or your self!
Line a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper.
Cut the cherries in half and place in a small bowl. Add the rum or brandy and stir to coat. Leave the cherries to soak for at least an hour stirring occasionally
Divide the marzipan into 24 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Press half the cherry into the top of each marzipan ball.
Break the chocolate into pieces, place in a bowl and set over a saucepan. Stir until it has melted.
Dip each sweet into the melted chocolate, using a cocktail stick and allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Place the coated cherries on the baking paper and chill until set.
If you like, you can melt a little extra chocolate and drizzle it over the top of the coated cherries. Leave to set.
