Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A pink, almond paste, no-cook fudge is topped with semi-sweet chocolate, candied cherries and sliced almonds for a sweet, festive snack.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Line 8-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan.
  • Beat almond paste and 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk in small bowl until blended. Add food color; beat until well blended. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until stiff. Spread onto bottom of prepared pan.
  • Place chocolate chips and remaining sweetened condensed milk in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or just until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Spread over top of almond paste layer. Cover; refrigerate until firm.
  • Use foil to lift fudge out of pan; peel off foil. Cut fudge into squares; garnish with candied cherry halves and sliced almonds. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
