How to Make ~ Cherry Fudge Nut Balls ~


  1. In a medium saucepan, over low heat - melt chocolate in the milk.
  2. Once melted add the confectioners' sugar and whisk until smooth. Fold in the cherries and nuts.

    Chill until cool enough to roll in balls, not so stiff that the coconut and nuts won't stick. You want them a little sticky.
  3. Have nuts and coconut ready. I spread each on paper plates.

    I use about a 1 inch cookie scoop for the size of the balls.

    Roll into balls and roll in nuts or coconut or both.

    Chill well.

    When not eating, keep them chilled as well.
