   50                    Maraschino cherries -- Drained
      3/4  cup           Brandy
    3      tablespoons   Butter

 Pour brandy over drained cherries; let sest for two days. Combine butter and
 salt; blend until smooth.
 Add sifted powdered sugar and mix well. Knead until smooth and shiny; chill for
 1/2 hour wrapped in waxed paper. While chilling, drain cherries well on paper
 towels; pat dry. (reserve brandy marinate for brushing on cakes or for cooking)
 Shape a marble-sized piece of fondant around each cherry; place on waxed paper
 lined tray. Chill until firm; about 2 hours. Melt chocolates separately over hot
 water, stirring constantly. Dip cherries and place on wax paper lined tray.
 Place in refrigerator to set. Store in covered container in a cool dark place
 10-14 days to fully ripen. Recipe by Alberta Dunbar of San Diego.
