Triple Chocolate Cherry Fudge - It's Not Complicated Recipes #cherry #fudge #desserts #glutenfree #glutenfreerecipes

Chocolate and cherry really are a match made in heaven. With the addition of toasted coconut, this is a delicious dessert with all the lovely flavours of a Cherry Ripe.

I love a dish that can be made in advance, and my Triple Chocolate Cherry Fudge fits that bill perfectly.

The fudge lasts in a cool pantry or the fridge for a week (that is, if you can resist eating it!)

It is so easy to make –

I firstly line a brownie pan with some baking paper and set aside.

From here, I prepare the coconut – toasting both desiccated and shredded for a delicious combination of textures.  Chop up your glace cherries – I like mine halved, but you could quarter or even leave whole if you prefer.

Dark and milk chocolate is melted with the condensed milk and stirred until smooth.

The chocolate and condensed milk mixture then has the toasted coconut and cherries added to it. This step does need to be completed quickly, as the chocolate will start to set as it cools.

Once your ingredients are well combined, they just need to be added to your pre-prepared tin, and smoothed out. The back of a spoon works perfectly for this. Set aside, and allow to cool for ten minutes, before refrigerating for two hours.

I then remove the fudge from the tin and flip it over on a wooden board. Remove the baking paper. To make this the ultimate Triple Chocolate Fudge, you’ll need to melt some white chocolate and spread over the top of thecooled fudge. I use a fork to make a swirling pattern.

Once the white chocolate has set, I cut the fudge into slices. You could even get creative, and use a cookie cutter for some fun shapes!

The fudge is delicious served as a petit four after dinner or as a morning or afternoon snack with a delicious cup of coffee.

The Triple Chocolate Cherry Fudge also makes an ideal festive gift – put on a pretty plate or in a cellophane bag, and you’ll havethe perfect host present!

I hope you’ll love this Chocolate Fudge as much as I do – let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Be sure to try our recipe for Caramel Fudge, also!

  • 200 g dark cooking chocolate good quality (broken into small pieces)
  • 175 g milk cooking chocolate good quality (broken into small pieces)
  • 100 g white cooking chocolate good quality (broken into small pieces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 395 g condensed milk 1 can
  • 150 g glace red cherries chopped in half or quarters


  • Line a 27cm x 18cm (11″ x 7″) tin with baking paper.
  • Place the coconut in a small heated frying pan over a low heat. Stir until lightly toasted – this takes a couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn. Set aside.
  • Chop your glace cherries – I like mine halved. You can chop smaller if you wish, or leave whole. 
  • Combine the dark and milk chocolate and condensed milk in a heatproof bowl. 
  • Stir bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. 
  • Add the coconut and cherries to the chocolate and stir. You need to move quickly at this point as the mixture will start to set.
  • Press the mixture into your lined tin – using the back of a spoon to smooth out.
    Allow the fudge to cool for 10 minutes, before putting in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Turn the cooled fudge out onto a board and remove the baking paper.
  • Place white chocolate in a heatproof bowl, and stir bowl over a simmering pot of water.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, remove from heat and spread over the fudge.
  • Using a fork, create a swirl pattern.
  • Once the white chocolate has set, cut the fudge into slices. Enjoy!


* I keep my coconut in the freezer – it keeps it fresh for longer.
* Please ensure you use a good quality chocolate.
* This is an easy recipe to prepare, but make sure you have all of your ingredients ready to go, as once the chocolate is melted, you need to move quickly.
* If you prefer a richer fudge, you can use just dark cooking chocolate.
