  • 1
    In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Beat in cocoa, granulated sugar, shortening, salt, egg and 1 cup of the flour with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • 2
    Stir in remaining flour and the cherries. Scrape batter from side of bowl. Cover and let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until double. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)
  • 3
    Grease 18 regular-size muffin cups. Stir down batter by beating 25 strokes. Fill muffin cups 1/2 full. Cover and let rise in warm place about 40 minutes or until double.
  • 4
    Heat oven to 375°F. Bake about 15 minutes. Immediately remove from pan to cooling rack.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, mix all glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm buns.

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.
