Cherry Berry Doughnut Holes
Cherry Berry Doughnut Holes are made in a cake pop maker. I purchased a Bella cake pop maker on one of my thrift shopping adventures. I paid $1.00 for the cake pop maker. What a bargain! It makes great cake pops and fantastic doughnut holes too. Cherry doughnut holes are the perfect sweet to make for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.
Baked Not Fried

What are Maraschino Cherries?
Maraschino Cherry [mar-uh-SKEE-noh] This specially treated fruit can be made from any variety of cherry, though the Royal Ann is most often used. The cherries are pitted and then Macerated in a flavored sugar syrup, usually almond flavor for red cherries, mint for green. Maraschino cherries can be purchased with or without stems. They’re used as a garnish for desserts and cocktails, as well as in baked goods and fruit salads.
