Ingredients

Cherry Fudge

Coca-Cola Frosting

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tbsp Coca-Cola
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Cherry Fudge

  • Cut the cherries into quarters. Pat with a paper towel over and over again to remove as much moisture as possible. Continuing patting with a paper towel until there isn't any more moisture. Set aside.
  • Line a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick foil. Set aside.
  • Combine butter, sugar, and heavy cream in a heavy bottomed saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Once at a full boil, continue boiling for 3 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Add cherry gelatin and stir continuously, boiling for another 2 to 3 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and stir in white baking chips. (I use a whisk to get out all the lumps.)
  • Stir in marshmallow creme and cherry or vanilla extract.
  • Fold in dry maraschino cherries.
  • Pour into prepared pan and let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate.

Coca-Cola Frosting

  • Place powdered sugar in a heat-proof bowl and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the butter, unsweetened cocoa, and Coca-Cola over medium heat.
  • Bring just to a boil and pour over powdered sugar. Whisk until combined and smooth.
  • Add vanilla extract and continue whisking or stirring to combine.
  • Immediately pour over chilled fudge. Use an offset spatula to gently spread the frosting over the top of the fudge.
  • Chill for 20 minutes or until frosting has set.
  • Cut into small pieces and serve.
