    Default I think they are gonna WORK!!! :-) :-) :-)

    I'm wrapping my Chocolate Covered Cherries in 4x4 foils, and despite
    my best efforts I always seem to have a few "leakers",and I tasted a
    bit of this 65% dark chocolate and a preview of the cherry juice
    inside.............

    YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :-)

    The chocolate is the only difference. I think I may let popular
    opinion choose.

    I knows this, I have a BUNCH of them!! I wrapped them each in foil,
    and I have them in two containers because I didn't want to pack them
    too heavy in my traditional Tupperware "ham" thing that I normally
    use!

    Now I'm gonna have pasta with red sauce for a late lunch/early
    dinner,cause I am all chocolated OUT! :-)

    I was just about to ask you if you'd tasted them before you were ready
    to toss them. I'm glad they were successful.

    I would never toss chocolate out before tasting, unless it smelled
    burnt! I have burned bowls of melting chocolate before by hitting
    "full power| rather than "defrost"on the microwave! ;-)

    Try nuking a small glass bowl full at high power for 10 mins! You'll
    burn it! I know I have!!

    I'm pretty certain that I'll feel the same way. The filling is quite
    sweet, and a high chocolate/sugar ratio seems very appropriate for the
    coating, a coating that is balanced and worthy of the sublime
    contents. All of your other candy is just OK--which is really a
    compliment from me--except the toffee, which is perfect, but perfect
    toffee just means not doing anything stupid.

    John, your chocolate covered cherries are always something special,
    and this year I expect that they will be exceptional. I've never
    taken for granted your gifts of Christmas candy. It's a nice thing
    that you do, year after year,

    Oh yes, you can burn it easily...But he is using compound coating, not
    the real thing....

    Only significant difference between compound coating and real
    chocolate that I know of is the fat content. Cocoa fat (butter) vs.
    palm oil or some other vegetable oil or fat. And while there are a lot
    (most?) of crappy compound coatings, there is at least one I know of
    and have tried that's pretty good:

    http://www.chocoley.com/compoundchocolate.htm

    And it's $6.99 a lb for a reason! It's GOOD!

    How much is that Merckins crap these days?

    http://www.lorrainescakesupply.com/merckens.asp

    $3.99 a lb? There's a reason there is such a price difference.
    Merckens is crap!

    I have NEVER burned real chocolate. I'm anally careful about warming
    real chocolate very slowly so as to not break the temper.
