Not many fudge recipes here and I don't usually make it but I found this one and just couldn't resist. Uses 60% dark chocolate and dried cherries. Sub in your favourite dried fruit/nuts:
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup evaporated Milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 2/3 cups Ghiardelli Dark Chocolate Chips (60% cacao)
3/4 cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1) spray 8-inch-square baking pan with Pam/non-stick spray. Put a layer of wax paper (could also use alum foil but it wrinkles and I didn't want pieces to get stuck in the fudge) so it overlaps the sides (easier to lift out) then spray again.
2) using a wooden spoon (won't conduct the heat) combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
3) mix in marshmallows, morsels, dried cherries and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously for 1 minute or until marshmallows are melted. Pour into prepared baking pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove wax paper. Cut into 48 pieces.
Nice and smooth and oh so chocolately. For the adult palette (because it's not MILK chocolate). Nothing wrong with milk chocolate, just not for me.
