Homemade Cherry Cordials

Nothing is better than homemade candies as they taste so good and a joy to make.  I love Cherry Cordials but don’t want to spend $10 -$20 a box for them. You can make Homemade Cherry Cordials at home for less and they make great holiday gifts. And if you like cherries, try my Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cookies Recipe.

      It’s a candy-making ingredient that liquifies fondant centers. Available at most cake/candy supply stores. You don’t need a lot of it.
