Amaretto Fudge

I LOVE the combination of chocolate and cherry flavors. Any dessert I can create with these flavors is a win. While chocolate fudge is typically a staple for most holiday baking, I knew I wanted to create a twist.

The best part of this recipe is it is all made in the microwave. No double boilers on the stove, no candy thermometers. It is seriously the easiest fudge ever. Also, if you aren’t a fan of amaretto or cherry flavoring, you can totally omit the amaretto flavoring, or even switch it out for a different flavoring like peppermint.
