In this recipe, pink Candy Melts were used to make the chocolate, which can be replaced with any color of choice. However, the pink Candy Melts have a soft and pretty color that beautifully contrasted with the gold sprinkles. Additionally, there was leftover chocolate from making the cherries, which made it possible to create marshmallow pops!
It is essential to purchase maraschino cherries with stems, and not just the cherries themselves. The stem was used as a handle while dipping the cherry into the chocolate to prevent dirtying fingers and the need to insert a lollipop stick into the cherry.
To make the dessert eye-catching, sprinkle it with some fun sprinkles. A multipack container of white and gold sprinkles was used and obtained from Walmart. These sprinkles are certain to add a layer of excitement to the dish.
When it comes to storing your delicious chocolate covered cherries, it’s important to ensure that they remain fresh and flavorful. For this reason, be sure to store them in an air-tight container that will help keep them protected from the elements. This will help keep your cherries from drying out or becoming stale, allowing you to enjoy them for longer periods of time. And if you want to keep your chocolate-covered cherries fresh for even longer, consider storing them in the freezer. By doing so, you can help keep them from melting or becoming too soft, making them a perfect snack to enjoy whenever you feel like it. Whether you keep your cherries out on the counter or stored away in the freezer, you’re sure to be able to enjoy them whenever you want, without having to worry about them going to waste. So go ahead and sneak a few whenever you need a yummy pick-me-up.

Melt candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl in thirty-second intervals, stirring in between. My chocolate took two minutes to melt. Do not overcook your chocolate or it will seize up and burn.
Use a paper towel to dry off your cherries.
Hold a cherry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate. I used a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the top half of the cherry until covered.
Hold the cherry over the bowl and let the excess chocolate come off the cherry into the bowl.
Put the cherry onto a piece of parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Put the sprinkles onto the chocolate-covered cherries. I used my fingers to lightly stick the sprinkles onto the cherries.
Let the chocolate dry.
