Christmas is less than 3 weeks away and I have an easy fudge recipe that’s soon to be Santa’s favorite. . .White Chocolate Cranberry-Orange-Pistachio Fudge! This fudge recipe has less than 10 minutes hands on time, the hardest part is waiting for it to set before cutting and serving!

These little squares of fudge look and taste like little presents, with their red, green and orange ‘jewels’ of sweet-tart cranberry, candied orange peel and salty pistachios. We like it topped with sea salt flakes to balance the sweetness of the white chocolate.

Stir together chopped white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave-safe bowl. Heat uncovered in the microwave on high for 1 minute and stir well. Continue heating in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. This will take about 2  – 3 minutes, depending on your microwave.

When the chocolate mixture is melted and smooth, add cranberries, orange peel and pistachios. Fold together with rubber spatula and then immediately pour into the prepared pan, pressing it down into corners of pan. Sprinkle top of fudge with flaky sea salt. Transfer pan to the refrigerator and let chill until set, about 2 hours or overnight.

      Bought the ingredients today, except the white chocolate. It was so expensive for four bars so I bought white “baking morsels” instead. Do you think that will work?

      • December 13, 2019 at 9:00 pm

        Baking morsels and or chips have stabilizers in them to help them retain their shape so they don’t melt like chocolate bars do. You can try but I can’t say definitively that they will work.
