Easy Dark Chocolate Rum Cherry

1 cup dried red sour cherries

  • 4 oz spiced rum

  • 4 cups dark chocolate chips (2 bags)

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Soak dried cherries in rum for at least 1 hour – drain just before use.

Butter an 8x8x2 pan. Then line with wax paper or plastic wrap. (I prefer wax paper)

In a double boiler* - melt chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter until smooth and thick.

Remove from heat. Add vanilla and stir until combined. Add drained cherries and walnuts. Pour into pan. Cool. Tip: let cool outside of the refrigerator for 30 minutes so that no condensation mars the top. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from pan. Cut into pieces. Store in a covered container.
