12 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp Kirsch (cherry brandy) or plain brandy
1 cup dried cherries
Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil so the foil extends 2 inches beyond two opposite sides of the pan.
In a 3-quart microwave-safe bowl, combine the semisweet and unsweetened chocolates, condensed milk and brandy. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH power for 3 minutes, or until the chocolate begins to melt, stirring halfway through the heating time. Then remove from the microwave and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the cherries just until incorporated. Do not over-stir, or the fudge will stiffen. Scrape the fudge into the prepared pan and spread to the edges. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Using the edges of the foil as handles, lift out the fudge onto a cutting board and cut into 1-inch pieces. Store the fudge, refrigerated, in an airtight container.
Makes 64 pieces.
