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.


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. This makes it a requirement to age the cordials in storage before consuming them to ensure the filling has become liquid. Some fillings include cherry, strawberry, raspberry and blueberry.[1][2]
