Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Cut the cherries in half, and put in a small bowl. Add the brandy and stir well to coat. Leave for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Divide the marzipan into 24 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball. Press half a cherry into the top of each marzipan ball.
Break the chocolate into pieces, place in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Stir until all the chocolate has melted.
Dip each sweet into the melted chocolate using a cocktail stick, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Put the chocolate-coated marzipan cherries on the baking tray, and chill in the refrigerator until set.
