Maraschino Cherry and Peppermint Fudge

 Taste Creations is at it again with a December theme of Candy!  It's the perfect time of year to make beautiful candies to share with family, friends, and co-workers.  This fudge was created to delight tasters with candied cherries and the minty taste of peppermint. It's so delicious!

I have made this fudge using the Two Ingredient Fudge method of combining chocolate morsels and a tub of frosting.  This is a good base for the fudge, it never fails and the combinations are endless!  You can see my experiments here:  Springtime Fudge (with candied Easter Eggs), Peanut Butter Fudge (my personal favorite), Cherry Chocolate Fudge, and Simple Fudge which has a chart to help you make your own creations!

Maraschino Cherry and Peppermint Fudge


This cherry fudge only uses four ingredients: crushed candy canes, chopped maraschino cherries, white chocolate morsels, and cherry frosting.  It tastes like you have stood at a hot stove all day making this creamy goodness.  I make the whole thing in the microwave, no stovetop cooking at all.
