I also saw this in the SL Christmas 2000 book. This was so good, very easy to make and festive-looking. Note about the cherries: The first time I made this I used a 10 ounce jar of cherries that had 35 cherries with stems and 4 without. The second time I made it, the 10 ounce jar (same brand) had only 27 cherries, so I had to run to store and buy more.
Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ Now this is really an unusual way to make [AND to serve!] fudge! OUTSTANDING in preparation, in presentation & in taste! This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!
