    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    This recipe came from my aunt who made this and another fudge for years at Christmas and it is my husband's favorite. It has candied cherries in it and looks so pretty. It has a butterscotch flavor and is very, very tasty. It is so pretty on a candy tray at Christmas. It makes 5 pounds of fudge. Please read the NOTE in the directions about stirring constantly.

      I took this to Church to pass around during a meeting we had. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. We are going to have a fund raiser to help some families in the area who are down on their luck and everyone agreed this fudge will be added to the list of goodies that we will sell. Thanks so much for sharing, Mimi in Maine.
