My Holiday Scrapbook: Pistachio/Cherry Fudge

Here's a beautiful Christmas-colored fudge to share with friends and neighbors!

Pistachio/Cherry Fudge

4 C sugar
2 C milk
1/2 C butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C finely chopped candied cherries
1/4 C blanched pistachio nuts

Put sugar, milk, butter and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to soft ball stage (use a candy thermometer if this is tricky for you). Cool fudge til it's lukewarm. Add vanilla and beat until thick and creamy. Fold in cherries and nuts quickly. Pour into a buttered 8" square pan and stand at room temperature until firm. Cut into squares. Makes about 2 1/2 pounds.

I'll be at these swaps today:
