  1. Melt summer coating over hot (NOT boiling) water. Using a small paint brush coat the insides of the molds, holding up to light to check for thin spots. Chill until set.

  2. Mix cherry juice or a small amount of pineapple syrup with divert sugar to make a thick paste, about the consistency of the melted chocolate. Put fondant mix into chocolate shells, add a cherry or piece of pineapple. Cover with summer coating, tap sides of mold to release air bubbles, and freeze for 2 to 3 minutes. When set unmold and put each cherry into a paper candy cup. Store at room temperature for 2 days.

  3. For an unusual treat, soak cherries for two weeks in liquor before putting into shells.

  4. No nutritional information available.
