This is a very tasty fudge, however the directions need some help. To get this fudge to set: after you've added the gelatin , stir to blend. Reduce heat to a bubbling simmer. Do not stir again. Simmer until it reaches a soft ball stage (238°), this will take several minutes. (Trust me,I know your thinking it will burn but it won't, this is the way fudge was cooked before marshmallow creme). Remove from heat and continue with the recipe except beat until smooth before adding cherries (quartered not halved).

I couldn't get this fudge to "set" properly. I tried it 3 times and all I got was goo. However, that goo tasted mighty good to me. I am not giving up completely with this recipe. It had an awesome flavor even though it didn't set. I will try again before the holidays to see if I can get it to set then.

I tried to submit my own recipe for Cherry Blossom Fudge two years ago with out success; guess I'll just rate this one. This is great fudge but this recipe is way off for butter. I use only 1T of butter and I also add 3T of the cherry juice when adding the choc. chips and CHOPPED cherries. Be sure the cherries are well drained. Boil for 5 minutes instead of four. You'll get great fudge with these notes.

The recipe as is is alright ... I liked the ingredients but added to them from my knowledge of fudge making. I added another cup of sugar halved the butter and added cherry extract oil to enrich the flavor. The maraschino cherries are delicious ... better than using candied cherries I think. I also added a cup of marshmallows for color and texture. I love chocolate and cherry together. YUM!

I think the non-setting problem most often mentioned by other reviewers, is due to the huge amount of butter listed in ingredients. If you want to make cherry fudge, I suggest you use: Hershey's Rich Cocoa Fudge - this site and add quartered maraschino cherries.

Although this was quick it tasted terrible.It was too sweet and left an after taste.I will not make this again.

It is a quick and easy recipe... BUT don't expect it to hold up outside of the fridge. It melted at room temperature and was a complete mess to cut. Delicious? Yes!!! but very messy!!

This tasted good, but I have to concur with the other reviewers who had problems with it not setting. This recipe didn't work for me.
