Make'n Mold Filled Ombré Cherries

Trust us -- it's what's on the inside that matters. And the outside layer of vanilla on these cherries that have chocolate on the inside is pretty delicious too.

  • 4
    Melt 3 oz. of Red wafers and 1 oz. of Vanilla wafers in bowl to create a Dark Pink color. Holding each cherry by its stem, dip most of it in this mixture and let set on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Melt 2 oz. of Red candy wafers and 2 oz. of White candy wafers to create a Pink. Dip part of one side of the cherry into the mixture to create part of the ombré effect. Let candy set on the same cookie sheet. Melt 1 oz. of Red candy wafers and 3 oz. of White candy wafers to create a Light Pink and dip the other side of the cherry into the mixture to complete the ombré effect. Let candy set on the same cookie sheet. Note: this setting time is not necessarily included in the project time.
