IF CANDIED CHERRIES ARE OUT OF SEASON YOU CAN ALSO USE MARASCHINO CHERRIES. Make sure to get them ultra dry!
To get that pop of pineapple flavor you’ll need two ingredients. Freeze dried pineapple and LorAnn Pineapple Flavoring. LorAnn Oils and Flavors is my favorite way to flavor, frostings, gumdrops and fudge. Not only are the flavoring delicious it also allows you to add flavor without a lot of moisture. Exp: Adding chopped juicy apples vs adding a little bit of apple flavor. Whether you’re making candy or frosting the amount of moisture that is added to the recipe is very important. Here are a few of my favorite recipes using LorAnn Flavors.→→→ BLUEBERRY CREAM CHEESE FROSTING, APPLE CINNAMON CREAM CHEESE BUTTER FROSTING, CRANBERRY CHEESECAKE BITES, EASY TO MAKE HALLOWEEN BAT GUMDROPS, TROPICAL SUNSET FUDGE, SEMI HOMEMADE TROPICAL PINEAPPLE COCONUT CUPCAKE RECIPE, CHOCOLATE AND ORANGE MARBLE FUDGE… well you get the picture. This is only a “few” of the recipes, I have a lot more. Looking at this list you can see how versatile the flavorings are and how much I LOVE THEM!
