Cherry Fudge is full of delicious maraschino cherries and creamy white chocolate. Plus a secret ingredient to add a fluffy texture: marshmallow cream!

I love making new recipes with cherries. Our Cherry Fluff Salad is always a huge hit at BBQ’s and our Cherry Almond Bundt Cake is delicious!

White Chocolate Cherry Fudge

To make this cherry fudge, first you need to get your cherries ready. Start by chopping them into tiny pieces and laying them out on a paper towel to dry. You’ll need to let to dry for about half an hour.

Next, melt the butter, sugar, salt and cream until it reaches 235 degrees. (A candy thermometer is really helpful for this!)

Pull the mixture off the heat and stir in the white chocolate chips and marshmallow cream. Last to go in  are your cherries.

Chocolate Fudge Tips

Make sure to use parchment paper to line your pan — it makes getting it back out of dish so much easier when you’re ready to serve it.

To cut fudge, make sure it has completely hardened – overnight is usually best. Then warm up your knife by running it under hot water. After each cut, wipe your knife clean before you make the next cut.

This cherry fudge is a really yummy recipe to try. Here are the printable recipe.

    This is the second year that I have made this yummy fudge! Wow this is wonderful! This would be good for Valentine’s Day treats as well as Christmas!

  2. Is the recipe ok if I switched it to non-dairy asking for a friend that is allergic to all milk products?
