  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include how long it will take for candy to set.
  • 2
    Melt a bag of Red candy wafers in a medium microwaveable safe bowl according to package instructions. Add ¼ cup of light corn syrup and mix until a ball has formed. Wrap ball of candy clay in cling film and refrigerate for about 1 hour until firm to touch.
  • 3
    Melt about 3/4 of a bag of Dark Chocolate candy wafers in a small microwaveable safe bowl according to package instructions. Pour some of the melted candy wafers into the bottle. Use the bottle to pipe 20 cherry stems on a lined cookie sheet. Refer to the photo, if needed. Chill for 10 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove the candy clay from the refrigerator once it is firm. Work it with your hands until it becomes soft and easy to work with. Divide into 20 pieces of a similar size and roll each into a ball shape. Using your finger place a small dent on the top of each ball. These are the “cherries”.
  • 5
    Use a toothpick to dip a cherry about three-quarters of the way into the melted Dark Chocolate candy wafers. Place on a lined cookie sheet, remove the toothpick and repeat with the other cherries.
  • 6
    Once the cherries have been coated take a stem and push into the hole on the top of the cherry (left by the toothpick). Chill for 10-15 minutes.
