"Chocolate cherries fondant. I use this inside the chocolate shell. It melts into a great liquid within 5 days. It is imperative to sift the powdered sugar."

  1. Sift confectioners' sugar several times into a bowl to eliminate all lumps.

  3. Turn fondant out onto a work surface generously dusted with confectioners' sugar. Knead until smooth and workable, 5 minutes; cut dough in half. Wrap each piece of dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.

The corn syrup really works nicely in the recipe and makes a great fondant. I thinned this some with more corn syrup and favorite flavorings to make a filling for chocolate eggs. Also, I colored some to use for the centers. I'll be using for my chocolate covered cherries. Thanks
