This fudge is a favorite because the flavors of chocolate, cherry, and almond marry together so perfectly. This chocolate confection can also be made on the cheap if you choose to use walnuts.

This fudge recipe (others may vary) is a wonderful confection to keep in the fridge for up to 4-6 weeks. At room temperature, I find 2 weeks provides the freshest fudge taste.
Drain and chop maraschino cherries. It is crucial that these chopped cherries are patted dry as much as possible. Any extra liquid will make the fudge sticky. Use a paper towel to squeeze out as much excess liquid as possible; set aside.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate morsels and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave the mixture for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat the process in 15-second increments.
