Super Simple Chocolate Covered Cherries

I just finished making chocolate covered cherries. They have met hubby's taste-test with lots of approval. The best part, they were incredibly easy.

2 jars maraschino cherries
1/2 bag milk chocolate chips
1/2 bag white chocolate chips
powdered sugar

Drain juice from cherries, use paper towels to remove moisture. Once somewhat dry, sprinkle on some powdered sugar to absorb any juice. Melt chocolate. I microwave mine for 45 seconds, stir, and microwave another 15 seconds. Be very careful to use a dry bowl and have dry hands. Any moisture will ruin your chocolate. Once chocolate is smooth, dip cherries in.

The white chocolate ones are a little less sweet than the milk chocolate. I've also heard that they get better if you let them sit for a few days.
