Chocolate, Cherry & Amaretto Fudge – a last minute Christmas treat.

I have been so unorganised this Christmas. I blame it on the illness that has taken over my life for the last few weeks (I finally have antibiotics to combat the lingering chest infection – yay!) and I also blame it on the 3 month old puppy that requires constant supervision because he is want to pee where ever he fancies. Chasing him round takes up a lot of time.

But I am nearly back to being 100% now and with 3 days to go, I am getting ready for Christmas. And in these 3 days to go there is still time for some baking and making. Top of the list is this chocolatey, cherry, boozy fudge. Basically 3 of my favourite flavours in one delicious bite. And it’s super simple to make – it only takes a few minutes to whip up a batch.
What you need:
  • 300g chocolate. I use milk but you could use dark
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons Amaretto Liquor
  • I pot of chopped up glacee cherries

What to do:

  • Line an 8×8” cake tin with some tin foil. 
  • Smash your chocolate up into small pieces (don’t judge me but I love this bit) and put it in a medium/large saucepan. 
  • Add the can of condensed milk to the chocolate. 
  • Turn the gas on to a low heat and warm gently until everything has melted. Make sure that you keep stirring so that nothing burns (it’s really easy for it to catch!)
  • When all the chocolate has melted take off the heat and add the cherries, vanilla and Amaretto. Stir really well to make sure that the liquids are fully combined. 
  • Pour into your cake tin and smooth the top.  
  • Leave to cool at room temperature and then pop in the fridge to set. 
  • Cut into bite size pieces and package for Christmas. 
So, what are you panic making in time for Christmas?
