MELT chocolate in small saucepan on low heat, stirring occasionally. Place in small bowl; cool slightly. Meanwhile, drain cherries and thoroughly pat dry.
MAKE indentation in each marshmallow with your finger, then insert 1 of the cherries into the hole, leaving 1/3 of the stem end of the cherry exposed. Using a fork to support the bottom of the marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, turning to evenly coat the cherry. Gently shake off excess chocolate.
PLACE on wax paper-covered baking sheet; cover. Refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

How to Melt Chocolate in the Microwave
Place unwrapped squares of chocolate in microwavable bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 2 minutes (for 2 squares of chocolate) or until chocolate is partially melted. Remove from microwave; stir until chocolate is completely melted. When melting more than 2 squares of chocolate, add 10 seconds for each additional square of chocolate.
