    Recipe of the day -2- desert special

    Cheery Cherry Almond-Topped Fudge


    8 ounces almond paste
    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, divided
    3 drops red food coloring
    1 3/4 cups HERSHEY'SŪ Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    24 candied cherries, halved
    1/2 cup sliced almonds


    1) Line 8-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan.

    2) 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.

    3) 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.

    4) 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.

    makes 48 servings (4 dozen) if made properly *joking*
