    Cynthia, what a wonderful idea! I’ve made both fresh and dried fruits or covered in melted chocolate, but I didn’t realize that canned would work, too. My late grandfather loved cherry cordial candies, and these sound like a healthier version of them (without that thick, sugary filling layer between the fruit and the chocolate). Yum!

      You are exactly right Margaret! They do not have that sugary layer like the store bought brands. There is very little or no liquid in these which, we think in our home, makes them a whole lot better.
