Cherry Ripe Fudge


This fudge is always on my Christmas baking list I’ve already made two batches this Christmas season, and I dare say there will be at least another 2 to go.

What you need

½ cups of shredded coconut

½ cup desiccated coconut

375g Dark chocolate melts

395g can of condensed milk

200g red glace cherries roughly chopped

What to do

Line a 20cm cake pan with bakers paper, ensuring it comes up higher than the sides of the pan roughly 2cm.

Using a frying pan lightly toast the coconut over medium heat for approximately 3 minutes.

In a heatproof bowl combine the dark chocolate melts and the condensed milk.

Sit the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir the mixture until it is smooth.

Add the coconut and Cherries to the mix and remove from heat.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly over the base.

Refrigerate until firm.
Lift fudge from the pan and cut into squares.

I love to give this fudge as gifts during the Christmas season as well as add it to our dessert list on Christmas day. These sealable plastic bags are a great way to package and give treats in over the holidays. You can find them in most discount stores.

What do you love to bake at Christmas?

Happy Baking
