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!

Ingredients

  • 12 oz

  • 1 c
    pecans, chopped
  • 1 tsp

  • note: important...you want to drain off as much juice as possible. placing the cherries on paper towels helps to pull out more juice.
