I am looking for a recipe which was on the back of a Christmas bag of M&M's several years ago. It used the green and red M&Ms and also candied cherries. I seem to remember using almond extract too. Anyone have this recipe?

Regarding the recipe I just posted, I notice some variations use 1/2 cup red & green M&Ms instead of 1/3 cup of green ones.
