Recipe Rating

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3-2/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Maraschino cherry halves
  • Slivered almonds

Directions

  • 1. Line 8-inch square pan with foil. Lightly press chopped cherries between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • 2. Place butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until melted; stir in powdered sugar, cocoa and evaporated milk until well blended. Microwave at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes; stir vigorously. Microwave at HIGH an additional 30 seconds at a time, until mixture is hot, slightly thickened and smooth when stirred. Do NOT boil. Stir in chopped cherries, pecans and almond extract.
  • 3. Spread mixture in prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Remove foil; cut into squares. Garnish with cherry halves and slivered almonds pressed lightly onto fudge, if desired. Serve cold; refrigerate leftover fudge. About 64 pieces.
  • NOTE: For best results, do not double this recipe.

    This has been a family favorite ever since I made it for Christmas several years ago. A batch never lasts until Christmas!
