Kids Cooking Thursday: Cherry Ripe Fudge

Cherry Ripe Fudge (from the August issue of Recipes+)
375g (dark) chocolate melts (we used milk)
375g can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup desiccated coconut, plus 1 Tbsp extra to sprinkle
1/2 cup glace cherries

Line a loaf pan with baking paper, making sure to leave enough overhang to make handles.

Distract your child by getting them to chop the cherries,

then place milk and chocolate in microwave proof bowl. Heat on HIGH for one minute. Stir to combine. Heat for 30 seconds more, or until melted and smooth.

Add coconut and cherries to mixture, mix well. Pour into the pan, and smooth surface. Sprinkle the extra coconut over the top of the fudge.

Chill for 4 hours or until set. Cut into slices to serve.
