“"A delicious blending of dark sweet cherries and deep chocolate fudge" I am a fan of a mystery series featuring a caterer as the main character. They have mentioned a cherry chocolate fudge in all the books that I have read so far in the series, but the recipe so far has not been given. I kept wanting a piece of that fudge. So I decided to wing it , and this is the final result. My husband is not big on chocolate of any kind, and I can't have much of it since I am diabetic. I save out about nine pieces that I ration out over a couple of weeks for me, then I put the word out to friends and relatives to "Save me from myself". They don't waste any time getting here to remove the temptation.”
