I've used this velvety fudge sauce studded with cherries for years, and everyone raves about it's addicting taste. This fudge sauce is so scrumptious that I could just eat it with a spoon!—Linda Pace, Lees Summit, Missouri

"Just made your fudge sauce ..... me thinks you exaggerated a wee bit ..... the cocoa powder needs butter sweetie, even though it contains sour cream, I also added about half the cherry juice ..... Otherwise the only way to taste the cherry flavor is bitting into the cherries ..... other than that ..... Linda, you did yourself proud!! It's a keeper folks! add 2 tbsps. butter, yum"
