Although I did follow your recipe, I had to substitute dried cherries for the candied kind, but other than that . . . I almost always love a chocolate-&-cherry combo any way it's served up, & this fudge is wonderful, & although I did share it with several neighbors, I probably could have devoured most of it myself! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for sticking with Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]
