Chocolate Cherry Pie Fudge


 Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Cherry Vanilla Flavor Packet

 1 container Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Starter

 1 bag white chocolate chips

 1/2 cup maraschino cherries

 1 1/4 cups chocolate wafer cookies

 2 Tablespoons butter

 1/4 cup granulated sugar

 1/4 cup chocolate of your choice – dark, white, milk – bars or chips are fine

 Line the bottom of an 8×8″ baking pan with foil, spray with non-stick spray.

 In a medium size bowl mix frosting starter and flavor packet. Set aside. Chop cherries into small pieces, leaving a few aside for the top of the fudge.

 In a food processor add wafer cookies, butter, and sugar – pulse until consistency is a crumby paste. Pour into prepared pan and press down until flat.

 Melt white chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring every 15-20 seconds. Stop heating when almost all the way melted, continuing to stir until it is all the way melted.

 Mix together white chocolate chips, frosting mixture, and cherries – quickly. Pour over the top of the cookie crust. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

 Take out of the pan – should be a solid block, move to a cutting board or clean counter surface.

 Melt chocolate to drizzle over the top – double boiler or microwave stirring every 15-20 seconds until almost all the way melted. Continue to stir until all chunks are gone and it is smooth. (if you need to smooth it out more, add about a tablespoon of shortening to the chocolate as it is melting, this makes it easier to drizzle).

 Top with cherry halves, drizzle chocolate over the top. {Or wait until you’ve cut the chocolate and then add cherries and chocolate.}

 Cut into pieces or cut out with a cookie cutter.
