Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Did you find the gift, that something special for your someone special? According to the National Retail Federation, nearly nineteen billion dollars were spent this holiday.
What did you get? Flowers, chocolate, stuffed animals, jewelry, a book of love sonnets, a DVD of your favorite romantic comedy? Did you go out to your favorite restaurant for a candlelight dinner for two? Or did you make something for your sweetheart?
Did you show your darling that you think they’re worth the time and effort to make a homemade gift? After the roses have wilted, after the stuffed teddy bear has been put up on the shelf, show your sweetheart that as far as you’re concerned, every day with them is Valentine’s Day. Below is a video tutorial for a sweet treat that’s pretty, tasty, and easy to make: Cherry Fudge.
Cherry Fudge is sweet, but not too sweet. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day of the year. It’s pink. There’s an optional chocolate topping. (You can’t go wrong with chocolate for Valentine’s Day.) You’ll need a 7.5 ounce jar of marshmallow cream or marshmallow fluff, two and a half cups of white chocolate chips, 3/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup heavy cream, a cup of sugar, one tablespoon of cherry gelatin, an optional half cup of dried cherries, optional sprinkles, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
