Michigan Fudge Hamentaschen

Michigan is known for many things: It’s fantastic universities (Go Blue!), the most beautiful fall colors, Mackinac Island (especially it’s fudge), and of course Michigan Cherries!


The four years that I spent living in Michigan were truly some of the best years of my life. I met some of my best friends and saw all of the natural beauty that the state has to offer. I was able to experience the thrill of a game day at the Big House in Ann Arbor, the infamous Zingerman;s deli, and the delicious treat that is Michigan fudge!


These “hamentaschen” use my 3 ingredient fudge and a can of cherry pie filling to combine the best of Michigan flavors!


Yield: 9-12 Fudge Triangles


Fudge

1 14oz Can of sweetened condensed milk

1 Cup chocolate chips

3 Tablespoons butter


Topping

Canned cherry pie filling


Make the fudge by heating the sweetened condensed milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. After about 2 minutes, add the chocolate chips and butter. Stir constantly until the chocolate is melted.


Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pull off the heat and pour into a well greased 9x9 inch baking dish.


Place in the fridge and let solidify for at least 3 hours.


When the fudge is set, remover from the baking pan. Cut into 1 ½ inch by 1 ½ inch squares. Use a very sharp knife for this or the fudge will stick!


Once you have all of the squares cut into a triangle, as illustrated below. Cut on the dotted lines.




Once all of the triangles have been cut, use a melon baller or teaspoon to carve out a circle in the middle of each circle.


Open the can of cherry pie filling and place one cherry inside of each carved out circle. Eat immediately after making.


The extra fudge will stay in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
