Pink Cherry Fudge Recipe
Since this fudge recipe is so easy, there’s no reason that you can’t whip it up quickly. My biggest tip is that you line your prepared pan with parchment paper so that the fudge doesn’t end up sticking! Just make certain to melt the chocolate and spread it out evenly so it firms and sits up properly.
This fudge recipe just might be the easiest fudge recipe that you’ll ever make. My boys have huge sweet tooths and this is one of their favorite after-dinner desserts! I tend to cut them bigger pieces in hopes that it will hold them over long enough so I can grab a piece or two.
Do I need to use food coloring for this fudge?
You can use pink food coloring if you want to but the cherry juice will actually give this fudge a nice pink tint. However, if you want it to be darker, just add a few drops of red food coloring to turn it light pink.

Will Fudge set in the freezer?
I get it…but if you rush your fudge firming up, it might change the texture a bit. While you can put it in the freezer, I don’t know if I would. This can cause it to have a different texture than if you were just patient for it to firm up in the first place.
