I have been making these for years. I use white chocolate to dip them in and to stuff in the cherries too. I have found the white chocolate tastes better. They are a bit time consuming but they are worth it. Make sure you drain and dry out the cherries before you use them. I usually start those the night before and lay them out on paper towels on a baking sheet and let them dry overnight. If they are too wet still the dough will get too wet and will fall apart.
We make these every year! I use almond extract. Very yummy!

Very yummy! We used hot fudge to drip on top instead of regular chocolate and won a baking contest with them!
