Rich dark chocolate fudge studded with cherries and almonds. This Dark Chocolate, Almond & Cherry Fudge would make a fantastic Christmas gift or you can always keep it for yourself!
Line a 20x20cm tin with baking paper and set aside
Put the nuts in a bag and bash them with a rolling pin to break them up slightly so you have some smaller and larger pieces
Break the chocolate into a heavy bottomed saucepan. Add the condensed milk, butter and sugar and melt over a low heat making sure you stir every so often
When everything is melted, add the dried cherries and crushed nuts. Stir until mixed through
Pour the fudge into the prepared tin and smooth the top until level. Leave to chill in the fridge for at least four hours but overnight is best
Once the fudge is completely chilled, cut it into equal sized pieces
Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
Freeze by wrapping in baking paper ad then putting in a Tupperware box. Keep in the freezer for a couple of months.
