Our favorite fudge recipe combines the richness of chocolate with the crunchiness of nuts and the chewiness of dried cherries.
Makes 6 dozen candies.
Microwave Directions: Place chocolate chips, marshmallows and milk in 8-cup microwavable measure. Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until chips and marshmallows are melted and mixture can be stirred smooth. Continue as directed in step 3.
Substitution: For extra chocolate flavor, use creamy chocolate sweetened condensed milk instead of the regular.
Variation: If you're a lover of lusciously smooth and creamy chocolate fudge, just leave out the nuts and cherries.
