1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup confectioners sugar

Lay a cherry on top of the peanut butter disc with the stem pointing up and work it up around the cherry so that the cherry is completely coated. Place enrobed cherry on a baking seet covered with waxed paper and freeze for about 5 minutes to chill slightly.
