Amazing fudge! I used two dark chocolate bars, large marshmallows snipped into quarters, almond extract and glace cherries instead of dried. The result was exactly what I envisioned: rich, creamy fudge that recalls black forest cake. The flavour combination is sophisticated and uttely addictive. I stirred in the cherries last, quite gently. A definite must try!
First of all - make sure that you use a large pot! I used a medium-sized one which seemed to have plenty of room - until I added the remaining ingredients and had trouble stirring it effectively, leaving me with a pot full of chunky, stiff goo. I thought that perhaps next time I would melt the chocolate before adding it to the sugar/milk. In any case, the result did have nice flavours (I used craisins, glace cherries and nuts), but the texture of the fudge is granular and the overall taste is overly sweet. I guess in the end I prefer my old standby recipe for Sweet Marie bars - a much easier and creamy concoction of chocolate, peanutbutter and Rice Krispies.
This was a very easy fudge recipe! And yummy to boot. I made no substitutions except to use store brand dark chocolate chunks. We made three different fudge recipes this weekend and hubby and I both liked this one the best. The flavor is very good. It's a dense fudge, not as fluffy as some.
Delicious! I made this last night and it is awesome! It is very sweet and I might cut back on sugar next time and Hubby said he would like some walnut in it the next time! It took longer than two hours to harden so I left it in the fridge over night. When I left it in room temperature this morning it became too soft, so I put them in a container and back in the fridge. Wish I could just leave them at room temperature though! But it sure taste great, rich and yummy... and so easy to make!!
Very good, sweet though and I did use less sugar than the recipe called for. However, I did use marshino cherries as I didn't have dried on hand. This did take more than 2 hours to firm up; I left it in the fridge overnight and it was perfect. Overall, this was a nice rich fudge and very easy to make.
Smooth creamy fudge. Easy to make. I used cherry flavored crasins because I think they are more flavorful than dired cherries. Next time I think I will try cherry flavoring in place of the vanilla.
So easy, yet so delicious! This fudge was so chocolately, creamy and rich. The addition of tart dried cherries not only made this festive for the holidays, but gave it a nice contract in color and flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and got great results. This is a definite "must try" for fudge lovers everywhere!
I made this round of fudge with White Chocolate this time and it tasted even sweeter.
