  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 24 maraschino cherries with stems, well drained
  • 24 milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped
  • 48 almond slices


  1. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Holding each cherry by the stem, dip into chocolate mixture. Place on a sheet of waxed paper; let stand until set.
  2. Reheat remaining chocolate; dip cherries again, then press onto the bottom of a chocolate kiss. For ears, place almond slices between cherry and kiss. Refrigerate until set.
