  • What To Do With Leftover Maraschino Cherry Syrup
    Well I remember someone asking this question a few years ago but I don't remember who. This sounds like a good idea:

    Hot cherry chocolate

    6 cups whole milk
    2 cups heavy cream
    1-1/2 cups chocolate syrup
    1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons maraschino cherry syrup
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    4 red maraschino cherries with stems

    In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, 1 cup of the
    cream, the chocolate syrup and 1/2 cup of the cherry syrup. Cook,
    stirring, until the mixture has bubbles around the edge of the pan.
    Do not boil. Reduce heat to low to keep warm.

    Use an electric mixer to beat the remaining cream until foamy. While
    beating, gradually add the powdered sugar and remaining cherry syrup.
    Beat until soft peaks form.

    Ladle the hot chocolate into mugs. Spoon whipped cream over each and
    top with a cherry.

    Makes 4 servings.

    That sounds good. I have used it to flavor Jell-o and in with the liquid when making quick breads. So don't throw it away.

    Zakons - That's how we always made our kid's Shirley Temples LOL!

    I like to add a little to some coke and have a cherry coke every now and then.

    How about adding some to white frosting for a cherry frosting.

    Just some ideas!

    Thanks for bringing back a great memory, and that cocoa sounds yummy!

    I like to use it in regular milk for a different flavor than chocolate. Plus, if you have little girls it turns it pink. Gives them something special. Laura

    Hi to all,

    So many great ideas that I never thought of but then that is why I love it here--the exchange of ideas by some really very nice folks.

    I have been off working lots & lots but then that is a good thing. Plus my computer is very slow lately so a trial to do anything on it, Have run McaFee and no problems there but I think it is AOL Spyware since I installed it. So either have to update to AOL 9 or delete that
    Spyware.

    Glad to see you all again. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and will have a great Christmas. I hope I can get back to you more frequently now. I was catsitting in the beginning on November for 2 weeks and now another neighbor has just asked me to watch her bunnies & birds. But that is just for 2 days. It will be fun.
