Patriotic cherries are exactly what your Fourth of July has been missing.
If you want to make them kid-friendly, skip soaking the cherries!
1 (10-oz.) jar maraschino cherries with stems, drained
1/3 c. Fireball whisky
1/3 c. whipped cream-flavored vodka
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 (3.5-oz.) jar blue sanding sugar sprinkles
1. Place cherries in a medium bowl and pour Fireball and Vodka over. Soak for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Drain cherries and pat dry with a paper towel. Reserve alcohol for another use.
2. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted.
3. Dip each cherry two-thirds of the way into melted chocolate, twisting slightly to help chocolate stick. Dip cherry in blue sanding sugar, coating halfway up the white chocolate coating.
4. Chill in fridge for at least 20 minutes.
