Every year I get the request from my family to PLEASE make that Cherry Nut Fudge, our very favorite. I hope you too enjoy it as we do.
- 1-1/2 lb. confectioners' coating (sugar) or 3 packages (6-oz. ea.) semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 3/4 cup chopped nuts
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped Maraschino or red candied cherries, well drained
- 1 tsp. almond extract
Lightly grease a 9-inch round or square pan (I use a square baking pan). Line with wax paper; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt the confectioners' sugar with the condensed milk; remove from heat and stir in nuts, cherries and extract. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Chill 2 hours or until firm. Remove from pan; peel wax paper off. Garnish as desired. Store loosely covered in refrigerator. Makes 16 pieces
I make both variations of this recipe so everyone has a choice.
