Amazing flavor and so easy to make. I use cherry flavored craisins for simplicity, and don't cut them. I've brought them into work and each time people are excited and coming back for more. They are highly addictive! It is by far my favorite fudge now! ??

Easy and pretty good. Makes for a different flavor of fudge. Mine didn't set up to be as hard as my normal fudge but because it's kept refrigerated it worked out okay.

This recipe was so easy and very delicious. The hardest part was cutting up the cherries. I don't know why but I didn't think this was going to work or even be good. WOW was I wrong. I will make this every year at Christmas from now on.
