White Chocolate Bakewell (Cherry and Almond) Fudge

"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 Recipe#305332, 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."

  • 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!

  1. 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
  2. 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!

I am a primary school teacher living in Bristol, England. At the moment I teach Kindergarten, known here as Reception. I really love my job but it doesn't leave much time for hobbies! I enjoy cooking for friends and aim to try new recipes as often as possible! My signature dish has to be White Chocolate Blondies, as it is my most requested sweet treat, and I definitely have a sweet tooth! Update- 5-5-09: Somebody was very thoughtful and gave me the gift of a premium membership. I can honestly say it made me feel so good! If you're out there, THANK YOU so much! I can't quite believe the generosity... <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/holidaybadge.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/holidayprmr2.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/7505/mybanner4a394ee84d5f0.jpg" > <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
