Here is the recipe:

Melt your confectionery chocolate in the microwave. Fill the mold completely with chocolate and then dump it out so the mold has an even coating of chocolate. Let it firm up in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Make the fondant filling by pouring a 1 lb bag of dry fondant into the mixer. Add 6 tablespoons of butter, a teaspoon of invertase, and two tablespoons of a liquid of your choice. Mix until the texture is no longer grainy. Taking the mold out of the fridge, insert a dollop of fondant into the mold and place a cherry on top. Cover the top of the cherry with fondant and place the mold again in the refrigerator. After a few minutes, take the mold out and add the final layer of chocolate.
