Cherry Marshmallow Chocolate Fudge


A traditional fudge is made with sugar, butter and milk or cream. Though the process may sound simple, getting the right texture can be quite difficult. Making fudge using condensed milk is a much easier shortcut and gives you creamy and smooth textured fudge. Today I'm sharing such a quick and easy chocolate fudge with cherries and marshmallows.

This chocolate fudge just need 10-15 minutes of preparation and about 2-3 hours of cooling. The condensed milk and dark chocolate gives this fudge a rich and creamy texture and I added some nuts for crunch. I have used glacé cherries, but you could fresh cherries or maraschino cherries. Make this delicious chocolate fudge for this Christmas holidays and enjoy.

Wishing all readers and friends a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016!!!
