  • 3/4 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries, dried between several paper towels for about 30 minutes
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons marshmallow cream
  • 1 drop of pink food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon cherry juice


  1. Line an 8×8-inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the diced cherries on a plate and pat them dry with a paper towel, ensuring to remove excess liquid while reserving some juice on the side.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, cream, and salt. Stir over medium-high heat until the sugar and butter are melted.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil and insert a candy thermometer. Cook, stirring frequently, until the temperature reaches 300°F.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and slowly add the white chocolate chips and marshmallow cream. Stir until melted and well combined.
  6. Mix in the pink food coloring and cherry juice, then add the chopped cherries and stir to combine.
  7. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer.
  8. Allow the fudge to set at room temperature for 3-4 hours.
  9. Cut into small 1-inch pieces before serving. Enjoy the creamy, cherry-flavored fudge!

Storage: Store the No-Bake Cherry Fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
