Cherry Cordial Fudge

Cherry Cordial Fudge
     Who doesn’t like chocolate covered cherries? Smooth cordial filling encapsulated in rich milk chocolate…My taste buds tingle just thinking about it.
     Two years ago I bought a bag of Hershey Cherry Cordial Kisses. I put them in the freezer (because I like my chocolate cold), but wasn’t quite sure what to do with the whole bag. I did not want to make peanut blossom cookies, because the cherry and peanut butter would not compliment each other. The fudge fanatic that I am, I decided to incorporate the kisses into my white chocolate fudge recipe. Add some cherry extract and red food coloring and voila: you have cherry cordial fudge!
Chopping up the kisses-It can be a messy process.
Make sure the kisses have been frozen several hours before chopping.
Bringing the sugar, evaporated milk, and butter to a rolling boil.
The fudge, after being poured into the greased baking pan.

  1. I tried this recipe because I love fudge and cherry cordials just the same and thought it would be a good idea to put them both together and found this recipe. The only difference between this one and the one I made was that instead of chopping the cherry cordials up like you did, I made like a double broiler and melted the candies then added them to the fudge and it actually tasted exactly as I had planned. Thank you for the recipe. 🙂

  2. My husband just made this and it’s delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
