EASY CHOCOLATE CHERRY FUDGE for Valentine's Day!
CHOCOLATE CHERRY FUDGE
1 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup chopped dried cherries (I use Trader Joe's)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1 tsp pure vanilla
Line cookie sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In medium microwave-safe bowl microwave chocolate and sweetened condensed milk on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 1 minute more or until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in 1/2 cup cherries, 1/4 cup walnuts, and vanilla.
Pour mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and spread into a 9 x 6 inch rectangle. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cherries and remaining 1/2 cup walnuts.
Chill 30 minutes or until firm. Cut fudge into 1-1/2-inch squares.
Layer fudge between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
For Valentine's Day, pack the fudge in a fabulous heart shaped tin with a big red ribbon! Enjoy!
