Choc Cherry Fudge Recipe

It is hard to believe how easy it is to make something so delicious! For that reason, this recipe tops my list of favourite homemade gifts for your friends or school teachers this Christmas. Gift giving doesn’t need to be expensive and for approx $13, you can make enough fudge to wrap up into 4 gifts. I like to buy some glass jars and fill them with fudge and wrap them with a Christmas ribbon.  For a cheaper option, you can wrap the fudge in cellophane tied with some Christmas ribbon.
