White Chocolate Cherry Fudge
I just tried it today, but I went with her suggestions for substituting some ingredients. For instance, I didn't have any almond extract, so I used Mexican vanilla. Because I had about a cup of milk chocolate chips around, I used it, plus two cups of white chocolate; figured that milk chocolate is as sweet as white chocolate, so it wouldn't be throwing sweetness off. Don't be tempted to add sugar! It's not disgustingly sweet like some of the recipes here, and it gets more than enough from the sugar in condensed milk and these types of chocolate. Next time, though, I'll try it with all white chocolate, just as it's written. I know that almond extract will be superior to vanilla in this recipe because it's perfect with cherries, so I'll buy some of it for next time.
It's fast and super-easy to make, because it's not a real fudge, which is tricky, demanding, and takes some skill. It's a tasty candy, though, and it's quite good enough to give to friends or take to work.
