This is a very tasty fudge, however the directions need some help. To get this fudge to set: after you've added the gelatin , stir to blend. Reduce heat to a bubbling simmer. Do not stir again. Simmer until it reaches a soft ball stage (238°), this will take several minutes. (Trust me,I know your thinking it will burn but it won't, this is the way fudge was cooked before marshmallow creme). Remove from heat and continue with the recipe except beat until smooth before adding cherries (quartered not halved).


I tried to submit my own recipe for Cherry Blossom Fudge two years ago with out success; guess I'll just rate this one. This is great fudge but this recipe is way off for butter. I use only 1T of butter and I also add 3T of the cherry juice when adding the choc. chips and CHOPPED cherries. Be sure the cherries are well drained. Boil for 5 minutes instead of four. You'll get great fudge with these notes.


I couldn't get this fudge to "set" properly. I tried it 3 times and all I got was goo. However, that goo tasted mighty good to me. I am not giving up completely with this recipe. It had an awesome flavor even though it didn't set. I will try again before the holidays to see if I can get it to set then.
