1 package (7.2 ounces) Betty Crocker Fluffy White Frosting Mix

1 pound powdered sugar

6 tablespoons margarine, room temperature

1 jar (10 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained and chopped

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 package (20 ounces) chocolate almond bark, broken into smaller pieces

1 bag (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips

2-1/2 cups dry-roasted salted peanuts, finely chopped

1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Step 1: Mix your cherry mash

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, take your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and add frosting mix, powdered sugar, margarine, maraschino cherries, vanilla and condensed milk. Combine starting on low speed, gradually turning the speed to medium and beat until the mixture has a fluffy consistency. It should take around 4 minutes, according to Joanna.

Step 2: Form the cherry candy

Take your mixture and begin to form 1-inch balls with your small cookie scoop. Place each ball on the lined baking sheet and place in the freezer until firm, about 1-2 hours.
