White chocolate, pistachio & cranberry fudge comes together in minutes and is pretty and festive enough to give as a gift. Not too sweet, just creamy and delicious with a little crunch from the pistachio’s and slightly tart from the cranberries.
If you’ve ever made fudge, you’ll know that it’s a little time consuming. You have to temper the liquid to get it to the right consistency. Well, no candy thermometer is needed for this recipe because this fudge is quick and easy. You can even get your kids involved and they could present them to their teacher as gifts.
To make the gifts, I just bought party favor bags, put in the fudge and tied up with festive gift tags, how easy is that?! Last year I made a white chocolate cranberry & pistachio bark that is also very easy and delicious and a white chocolate hot chocolate, that would be delicious with any of these treats. So many choices for the white chocolate fans out there. I’m also posting a white hot chocolate recipe next week, yum!
- 2-14 ounce cans sweetened condensed milk
- 32 ounces white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 ounces dried cranberries
- 4 ounces shelled pistachios unsalted
Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper measuring 15 x 8 inches.
Place into an 8 x 8 inch square baking dish in a 'cross' shape. This is to help remove the fudge easily from the pan.
To a saucepan add the condensed milk over medium low heat and bring to a very low simmer, cook for 5 minutes.
Add the white chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted.
Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract, cranberries and pistachios.
Pour the mix into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

Once set,cut into 2 x 2 inch squares.
