This is not a true fudge but is so ridiculously easy to make that I had to post it! It also tastes wonderful if you like rich, sweet treats! After making Sam#3's Cherry Fudge Logs, I liked it so much that I had to try different variations on the recipe, and this is one that I really like! (Posted with permission). Cook time is chill time.
- 15 ounces white chocolate chips
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons almond extract
- 3⁄4 cup glace cherries, cut into eighths
- glace cherries, to top (optional)
- plastic wrap (cling film)
- Put the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan and warm over a very low heat, stirring continuously until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat.
- Stir in the almond extract and then the glace cherries.
- Line a loaf pan with cling film (saran wrap) and pour the warm fudge mixture inches.
- Chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours, until completely set (ideally overnight).
- Then turn out of the pan and serve (this is a soft fudge so is best served slightly chilled).
- NB If desired, you can quarter extra glace cherries and scatter them over the top of the fudge before chilling to make it look a little more colourful!
I could make myself sick on this , but thank goodness I have some willpower! This fudge is not only delicious, it is beautiful as well. And it's very easy to make. I had about 1/3 cup of toasted sliced almnds that I wanted to use up, so I added those. This is a keeper! If I could give it more stars, I would! ZWT7-Shady Ladies
Made a triple batch of this fudge just in time to include it in a handful of holiday baskets that we gave to friends ~ BIG HIT with them as well as with me & my other half! I don't usually use these cherries in anything anymore, but they really did add a nice touch to this great holiday fudge! Certainly a keeper!
