    Default Chocolate Cherry Fudge

    Chocolate Cherry Fudge
    1/3 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries, well drained
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
    3-2/3 cups powdered sugar
    1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
    1/4 cup evaporated milk
    1/3 cup pecan pieces
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    Maraschino cherry halves, well drained (optional)
    Slivered almonds (optional)

    1. Line 8-inch square pan with foil. Lightly press chopped cherries between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.

    2. Place butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until melted; stir in powdered sugar, cocoa and evaporated milk until well blended. Microwave at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes; stir vigorously. Microwave at HIGH an additional 30 seconds at a time, until mixture is hot, slightly thickened and smooth when stirred. Do NOT boil. Stir in chopped cherries, pecans and almond extract.

    3. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Remove foil; cut into squares. Garnish with cherry halves and slivered almonds pressed lightly onto fudge, if desired. Serve cold; refrigerate leftover fudge. About 4 dozen pieces.

    NOTE: For best results, do not double this recipe.
