3 (6 ounce) packages semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries, well drained
1 teaspoon almond extract
Pinch of salt
Lightly grease 9-inch heart shaped cake pan or 8 or 9-inch square pan; line with wax paper. Set aside.
In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat; stir in nuts, cherries and extract. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Chill 2 hours or until firm.
Remove from pan; peel off wax paper. Garnish as desired. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
To form heart shape without pan, draw 9-inch heart shape on wax paper; spread mixture to edge.
