Easy Chocolate-Covered Cherries

2 jars (10-ounces each) maraschino cherries with stems
1 package (12-ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

   Drain cherries well and discard juice. Place cherries on paper towels and allow to dry completely. Place chocolate chips in a medium saucepan with a heavy bottom. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.
   Dip cherries into melted chocolate, swirling to coat completely. Place cherries on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper; refrigerate until set. Makes about 5 dozen.
   NOTE: For more decorative treats, use white chocolate to coat cherries; then drizzle with melted dark chocolate next and allow to set.
