This was actually my first attempt at making fudge, and I must say – I hope I didn’t set the standard too high with this one. I can’t thank Annie enough for sharing it last week. When I saw it, I knew I had to make it pronto. I mean, what’s not to love? Nutella. Cherries. Hazelnuts. Chocolate. Then, a sprinkling of salt to finish it all off?

It was everything that I thought it would be. Rich and decadent, with a toastiness from the hazelnuts, and a wonderful tart bite from the cherries. And smooth! If you’ve never made fudge before, this is a great recipe to try. I think the addition of the Nutella really makes the smoothness part of the equation foolproof. I know this one will definitely be going in my goodie gift baskets this year!

    I love the new look of the blog! (Sorry if it’s not that new – I’m so behind on blog reading!) This fudge looks delicious. I’m scared of fudge but I definitely want to try this.

    Nutella, cherries, fudge = yep, this stuff has all of life’s necessities inside it. Laura, what a fantastic fudge recipe for the holiday season. And it’s so easy to make! I made peanut butter fudge last weekend. And now I wish I put nutella in it. :)

      It starts to diminish in quality after about 3 days.
