Christmas means giving presents and what better present than Black Forest fudge with cherries, made in your slow cooker. It would make a perfect homemade gift for your friends and family.
Chocolate and cherry is such a classic combination. Ideal for Christmas time and the colder months, as well as the warmer times of year!
I actually made this slow cooker Black Forest fudge back in August but have been saving it until now, so am making up for that now as it is fudge season at last!
