What you’ll need: 

  • 1/2 cup vanilla-flavored vodka
  • 1 jar (10 oz) red maraschino cherries with stems
  • 2 squares (about 3 oz) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), chopped (from 20-oz package)
  • 1 tablespoon each green crystallized sugar and holiday nonpareils

How to make:

  • Drain cherries & discard cherry juice. Return cherries to jar. Pour vodka over cherries in the jar and cover. Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.
  • Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Drain cherries; discard juice. Pat cherries dry with paper towels.
  • In medium microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating uncovered on High for 45 to 60 seconds, stirring until melted and smooth. Dip bottom half of each cherry into candy coating, then into green sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Let stand about 10 minutes or until coating is firm.
