Cherry Conversation Heart Fudge

I can’t help it.

I’m easily swayed by the excitement of the holiday candy and sprinkles and all things pink lining the grocery store shelves right now.  Yeah, I know we’ve had the discussion about how I’m basically indifferent to Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean I can resist all the sweets in the stores and on Pinterest.  I’m weak-willed.  I admit it.

Plus, Doodle is in this phase where he likes “pink stuff” and since I have no little girl to doll up in dresses and lacy socks, making pink fudge for myself my little guy will have to suffice.

Look, I basically forbid the Tall Boy from buying me chocolates on Valentine’s Day because I will eat the entire box all by myself.  By the 15th, no joke.

So, since I know I’m not getting a box of chocolates, I decided to make myself some fudge.

This two-ingredient (well, three-ingredient in this case) fudge has been the rage all over blog-land.  And for good reason.

Two ingredients.

No pesky candy thermometers.

Melt.  Stir.  Chill.

Which all means quicker eating for me.

And I don’t argue with anything that gets sweets to my hips mouth super fast.

Cherry Conversation Heart Fudge
 
Ingredients
  • 1 container cherry frosting
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup chopped maraschino cherries
  • conversation hearts, for garnish
Method
  1. Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edge of the pan. Set aside.
  2. Over a double-boiler, melt your white chocolate chips. If microwaving, melt for one minute, then stir, microwaving at 30 second intervals until melted. I usually add a bit of canola oil to help keep the chocolate from clumping.
  3. Stir in the can of cherry frosting until well blended, then add in your chopped cherries.
  4. Spoon into prepared baking pan and sprinkle with conversation hearts.
  5. Allow fudge to chill, about 2 hours, before cutting into squares.

      No problem! We love cherries around here, so I almost always have an open jar.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
