Cherry Mash Candy :)

Here is my Recipe for Cherry Mash Candies:

1 Can Sweet Condensed Milk
2 lbs Powered Sugar
2 Tubs of Creamy Cherry Frosting .... or 2 boxes Cherry Frosting
1 Jar of 8 oz Marchino Cherries Drained...and Finely Chop
1/2 Cup Butter Softened
2 Tsp Vanilla

Mix all the above ingredients together.. This mixture should be stiff.
Butter hands and form balls. Place on Wax Paper and refrigerate overnight.

Dip Cherry balls in the following:
2 Packs of Chocolate Bark
1 Cup Crushed Unsalted Peanuts

Melt Chocolate in double broiler and dip each ball in the Chocolate to coat it. Then roll in the chopped Peanuts. Place on Wax Paper and Refrigerate over night again.

Sometimes I am short on time and I add the Peanuts to the Chocolate to save the rolling in Peanuts step .... this also works out wonderfully :) But My favorite way to make them is to roll them in the nuts :)

this sounds so good...and fattening. That's why we should eat it before the new year starts and we're trying to lose weight.
