There is an unexpected delight that comes with the blend of cherry and chocolate. My dad’s sister used to make these candies every year around the holidays, and his love for them became my own. I asked my aunt Mary if I could share her recipe in this book and she gladly obliged—and there’s no doubt I’ll be adding it to the lineup of treats I make every holiday season.
TIP: If you can’t find or don’t want to use the powdered frosting mix, omit the mix and decrease the amount of sweetened condensed milk to 3 tablespoons. In this episode, Jo sprinkles the Cherry Mashers with multicolored nonpareils.
