Sprinkle Dipped Cherries

Pick up a jar of cherries, candy melts and sprinkles to make candy coated cherries.


  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Candy Melts
  • Rainbow Sprinkles
  • 1 tbsp Shortening or coconut oil, optional


  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Discard the syrup from the jar of maraschino cherries and dry the cherries on paper kitchen towel for 10 minutes.
  • Place the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 45 seconds. Stir well and reheat for an additional 25 seconds, as needed.
  • Holding a cherry by the stem, dip the cherry into the melted candy melts and rotate to achieve your desired candy coating.
  • Let any excess candy melts drip off and then dip the wet candy-coated cherry into the sprinkles.
  • Place the cherry on the lined cookie sheet and repeat with all cherries.
  • Let the cherries set for 2 hours or overnight.
