A batch of this Chocolate Cherry Marshmallow Fudge is a delicious treat to make for Valentine's Day. This easy to make chocolate fudge recipe has little pockets of cherries and marshmallows in it. Make sure you keep some for yourself too.
So I have been holding out on you guys...this chocolate fudge was actually made back in December. Doesn't it look pretty and Christmas-y? It even got sent out in packages along with some of this hot chocolate fudge to our out of town family.
The problem I have as a food blogger is that I over make for every holiday. Food bloggers you get me, right?
There are only so many days that I can post food. I mean I could post a recipe every day I guess...if I never wanted to sleep or see my hubby and kiddos. So nope, that's not an option.
As I was setting up my fudge to take pictures, I was mentally thinking about everything else I already had made for the month. There was no way this fudge was going to get posted. And it was way to yummy to wait an entire year to share it.
But candied cherries and chocolate are the perfect Valentine's Day treat too. So, out came the heart day supplies!
I love using treat boxes to gift fudge in. They are the perfect size to fit 9 good size pieces of fudge. I don't like wimpy fudge, so I usually cut my batches into 36 squares. You really could do 49. If you are into portion control or something like that.
My hips and thighs wish I would learn about this portion control thing! They are tired of going to the gym and doing crazy WOD's, only for me to come home and ruin all their progress with fantasy fudge, banana fudge and peanut butter balls.
Anyway, some washi tape and some heart stickers on tags makes this Chocolate Cherry Marshmallow Fudge so fun to share with those you love.

I heated on medium heat and the chocolate got too hot. I tried turning it down and stirring but it got really thick, not creamy. Maybe clearer instructions on heating/stirring… or what should I have done differently?
Did you heat the chocolate alone or with the other ingredients? If so, it should have melted fine even on a medium heat. If you think it was too hot, your stove top must run a little hotter than mine does, so I would reduce the heat to low next time.
When you say candied cherries, do you mean maraschino cherries?
No, candied cherries are different than the regular jar of maraschino cherries. These are maraschino cherries that have been cooked down in a sugar glaze until they are candied. Walmart usually sells them around the holidays. I think they are used mostly for things like fruit cakes.
I made this recipe the other night but mine didnt set right. It's still soft. Not sure what I did wrong ???? I was so sad. Any ideas?
How soft do you mean when you say soft? It should set up to where you can cut it into squares, and it will hold that shape, but it isn't a hard set fudge.
