Festive White Chocolate Pecan Cranberry Fudge

Cranberry Fudge Recipe | Easy Christmas Recipes | Easy Fudge Recipes

We all love the idea of homemade gifts but rarely have enough time to make them. Or so you think… This incredibly moreish & beautiful White Chocolate Pecan Cranberry Fudge should definitely be top of your to do list this Christmas! It takes only 10 minutes to make and the fridge does the rest of the hard work for you. I’m totally serious! No thermometers, no slaving away over a stove – just a brilliantly easy microwave fudge that looks just as festive as it tastes and would make the perfect present for your loved ones. Need any more excuses to make it??

Here is what you will need to make large bite size pieces 25 pieces.

  • 500g White Chocolate
  • 55g Unsalted Butter, Cubed
  • 1 x 397g Tin of Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 70g Dried Cranberries, Roughly Chopped
  • 60g Pecans, Roughly Chopped

 

To Decorate

  • White Ready Fondant Icing *
  • Icing Sugar, for dusting

 

Essential Equipment

 

*you can use whatever edible decorations you like/have in the cupboards to decorate the top.

 

To Make Fondant Snowflakes

If you are going to make the snowflakes to decorate your fudge, on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar, roll out a small chunk of white ready fondant icing to approx 3mm thick. Then, using a plunge cutter, cut out around 25 snowflakes and place them onto a plate. Pop into the fridge to dry out for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.

Alternatively, to speed up the recipe even more, you can buy any festive sugar decorations you like from most supermarkets and use those instead.

If you are using a silicone baking pan, you don’t need to line it. If you are using a regular baking tin – lightly grease & line with baking paper. Set to one side until needed.

In a large microwavable bowl, break in the chocolate then add the butter, condensed milk & vanilla extract.

Next, heat in the microwave on full power for 30 seconds. Then give it a good stir and keep heating in 10 second intervals. Stir well after each time until it’s all melted and smooth.

If you don’t have a microwave, you can just as easily do it on the hob. Simply add all the same ingredients into a large saucepan and heat over a low heat. Stir constantly until it’s all melted and smooth.

Quickly add in your chopped pecans & cranberries and give it a really good stir to evenly distribute them.

Then pour it into your silicone/prepared tin and level out with a spatula. If you are using a silicone tin, I find it easiest to put a baking tray underneath so you can easily move it to the fridge when you’re finished.

To Decorate

Working quickly (as it will start to set) top with your chosen Christmas decorations. If you are using snowflakes like me, place them while being mindful of where you are going to slice later.

Gently press them into the top of the fudge then place into the fridge to set for 4 hours or overnight.

Once the fudge is firm, remove from the tin and slice into a 5 x 5 grid to make 25 pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 7-10 days.

    This looks great definitely going to try this. Thanks for the recipe. As far as ‘American’ measurements go who on earth even uses that system anymore? Time to catch up with the rest of the world I think. 🙂

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      Aww thank you for your kind words Jaya! 🙂

  2. Julie says:

    Please use American measurements!!!!

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      Hi Julie. I’m based in the UK and firmly believe that weight as opposed to volume is a much better/more accurate way to cook, which is why I always use it both personally and on my website. That being said, I have converted this particular recipe for you.

      2 and 7/8 Cups White Chocolate
      4 tbsp Unsalted Butter, Cubed
      1 x 14oz Can of Condensed Milk
      1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
      5/8 Cup Dried Cranberries, Roughly Chopped
      1/2 Cup Pecans, Roughly Chopped

      Hope this helps 🙂
