Cherry Chocolate Fruit Dip

16 oz. cream cheese (2 bars) 3/4 cup heavy cream 2/3 cup sugar 10 oz. jar maraschino cherries, drained (save the juice) 5 T. maraschino cherry juice 4.4 oz. chocolate bar 4.4 oz white chocolate bar 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 tsp. almond extract dipping fruit (bananas, apples, pineapple, etc.)
Directions: Dump the cherries in a food processor, and pulse until well chopped. Break up the chocolate bars, add to the food processor and pulse just until the chocolate is chopped to small chunks. Don't over-pulse the chocolate, you want small chunks. Set the chocolate/cherry mixture aside and pull out another bowl. In that bowl, combine your sugar, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream. Mix well. Add the vanilla, almond extract, cherry/chocolate mixture, and finally the cherry juice. Mix well. Chill and serve with your favorite fruits (apples, bananas, strawberries, pineapple, etc.)
