Cherry Vanilla Fudge

Cherry Vanilla Fudge 

This past weekend we did some baking.  One thing that we made for the first time was Cherry Vanilla fudge. It was super easy to make, and tastes good enough to give away as a gift.

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website.

You will need
1 1/2 tsps of butter (for greaszing the pan)
1 pkg or white baking chips
1 16 oz can of vanilla frosting
1 tsp of cherry extract
red food coloring

Cover an 8 x 8 baking pan with aluminum foil and use the butter to grease it.

Kara did a great job of covering it.

 In a glass bowl, melt the baking chips in the microwave.  I used the 30 second method, stirring the chips every 30 seconds.  Once melted mix in the frosting and cherry extract.   Stir until completely mixed and pour into the baking pan.

Drop in some red food coloring in random places.  Use a knife to swirl the colors together.  In this step, I did not realize I did not get the color through all of the fudge. I ended up with a white layer on the bottom, which I actually think looks really good.  Chill the fudge for about 4 hours.

Invert the fudge pan on a cookie sheet.  Remove the pan and then the foil.

I allowed the fudge to sit at room temperature for a few minutes to make it easier to cut. Cut into small pieces.  This fudge has a sweet flavor and is quite addicting.

Share with your family or give as gifts  I bet Santa might like some as well.

I will be sharing this fudge recipe on the following linky parties HERE. Stop by and take a look.
