1
package regular active dry yeast
3/4
cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
1/3
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/4
cup granulated sugar
1/4
cup shortening
1/2

maraschino cherries, cut into eighths

Glaze

1

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Look for maraschino cherries with or without stems. Use any remaining cherries as a garnish for these buns or other sweet treats and cocktails.

Arrange glazed buns on large white plate. Garnish with stemmed maraschino cherries or fresh cherries. Accent the platter with sprigs of fresh mint.
