Chocolate Cherry Fudge Recipe

Cherries make this fudge unique from others, and festive for the holidays. It's a recipe my husband really enjoys. I've made it for our Homemaker group's Christmas party.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:48-60 servings


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied cherries
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


  • 1. In a medium microwavable bowl, combine milk and chocolate chips. Microwave on high for about 1 minute or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Stir in almonds, cherries and extract. Spread evenly in a greased 8-in. square pan. Cover and chill until firm. Cut into squares. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Yield: 4-5 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
