Chocolate Cherry Nut Fudge

Kathy W


This is a favorite around the Holidays.

I'm not sure where the recipe came from - off of the can of sweetened condensed milk or the chocolate chips (for the basic Fudge). I just know it is so easy to make! And the addition of the cherries and nuts makes it oh so delicious!
