A cordial is a type of confection in which a fruit filling is placed within a chocolate shell. A well known confectionery of this type is the cherry cordial.

Process[edit]

The liquid center found in some cordials is made using invertase to hydrolyze sucrose in the filling, a process which can take up to two weeks. Some fillings include cherry, strawberry, and raspberry.[1][2]
