Cherry Fudge is a fun Valentine treat that doesn't take hours to make. This is made in just a few minutes and tastes so creamy and delicious! Friends and family will think you spent hours in the kitchen!
2 1/2 cups white chocolate (I used Ghiradelli's chips)
7 oz. jar of marshmallow cream fluff
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp cherry Jello
3/4 cup dried cherries
10 oz. dark choc, melted
(Add 1 to 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil if choc. is too thick to spread)
Prepare a 9x9 baking pan with a lining of parchment paper that extends a couple inches over the sides of the pan. When the fudge is cooled you will be able to lift it out to cut easily!
Heat butter, sugar, cream and salt together in a heavy pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. Add cherry jello and continue boiling for 5 more minutes. Put white chocolate and marshmallow cream in a medium bowl and pour the hot mixture over it. Whisk the ingredients until all the chocolate is melted. Fold in the dried cherries. Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and spread the melted dark chocolate over the top.
Place the pan in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Cut into squares.
Hope you love it like we did!
