    • 8 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating, chopped

      Truly quick and easy,and FUN to make (for kids especially) if you have the correct ingredients. I used Betty Crocker Easy Flow Decorating Icing and Dolci Frutta candy coating, both from the baking aisle of the grocery store. One jar of cherries is more than enough for 16 cookies - which is only 16 servings - and my Create 'n Bake package said to bake for 10-14 minutes (mine were done in 12 anyway but thought I'd make a note of this.) How cherry, I mean cheery these would be at the holidays with both red and green maraschinos.
