Fudge

 Star(s)

Jean Segina from Mt Vision, NY

We were looking for something different for our first day of school snack, and tried this one. Good fudge. The kids think they would rather have raisins, but the recipe could be adapted for that, too. We will make it again. Very easy, and they can help.

    Cranberry Fudge

    Robbie Johnson from ANCHORAGE, AK

    My family loves this recipe. I've also used fresh cranberries in the fall. I chop them, then rinse them in a strainer to remove some of the seeds. After they have been well drained (I also put them on paper towels to try to get them as dry as possible), I coat the cranberries with 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup powdered sugar and add them to the fudge instead of dried cranberries.

    Wonderful fudge

    Lori Wessel from ALGOMA, WI

    This is excellent and very easy! My family prefers plain fudge but all my friends said you couldn't really tell their were cranberries in it. Next time I'm going to try cherries and blueberries. It adds something healthy with the not so healthy.

    What a great recipe. This was a hit at our Open House; everyone loved it & asked where it was bought...my response was that the ingredients are right over there as I pointed to my kitchen. Many people were surprised.

    Cranberry Fudge

    SALLY SZPAK from Medford, OR

    wow! What a hit this fudge made at my Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone couldn't believe that I made it. I thought it tasted like the chocolate covered raisins that I loved as a child. I highly recommend this one for any get together or gifts at Christmas.

    Yummy

    julie boyer from lowell, IN

    I changed the recipe by adding golden raisins with the dried cranberries. It turned out yummy.

    Cranberry Fudge used in S'Mores

    Marcy Allen from HARKER HEIGHTS, TX

    I had leftover Cranberry Fudge after I made cut-outs for Valentines candy, so I melted the leftovers in the microwave and smeared it on graham crackers and topped them with mini marshmallows. Then I popped them into the oven at 350 for a few minutes until the marshmallows started to brown. The adults at the meeting I took the S'Mores to loved them!

    The cranberries add a delightful new twist to fudge. If your family is tired of the same old thing, you should definitely try this. The entire family loved it.

    Cranberry Fudge

    Lynita Mitchem from PORTAL, GA

    The cranberries gave the fudge a new complimentary twist to an old favorite. Everyone enjoyed it and was surprised that it had cranberries in it. It is now one of my favorites and will become an added tradition in my holiday baking. It is so simple to make. It is also good made with orange flavoring in it.

    Awesome Fudge

    Melissa Thurston from ALVARADO, TX

    Every year I make fudge for the holidays. I decided to add the Cranberry Fudge this year for something different. It was awesome! Everybody loved it. I've had to make more batches then I usually make, everybody wanted more!

    Fudgy Berries

    Mary Duffy from PARRISH, FL

    My first attempt at ever making fudge and it disappeared before my very eyes. This was a big hit at my recent Holiday Luncheon. I couldn't believe fudge could be that easy to make. The craisins gave it the big "YUM" from all who tried it. This fudge reminded me of the old Chunkie bars I used to enjoy as a child but much softer. I am definently making another batch to give to neighbors for their holiday table.

    Yummy!

    Maria Baquero from BELLEVUE, WA

    I also made this fudge using the microwave to melt the chocolate with great results. And super easy too! I didn't put in nuts since my daughter is allergic and it was still awesome. Anything with cranberries in it is great in my opinion, but others that tried it really liked the sweet tartness of this fudge. Just yummy!

    Cranberry Fudge

    June Fagin from Orangeville, ON

    I microwaved the chocolate chips & corn syrup to save time 3 times at 30 seconds each time and it was excellent and very easy to clean up. Much faster than stove top and same results. I brought it too work and shared with co-workers they all want recipe now. I could not find Nestle Toll House chips so had to substitute.

    Really great!!

    Linda Randles from NORTH CANTON, OH

    This fudge was simply great. The cranberries give chocolate fudge a different taste. We loved it and so did the company.

    Cranberry Fudge to die for!

    Stephanie Weiss from SEATTLE, WA

    First of all this was a very easy recipe to follow! The texture of the fudge was excellent, it took very little time to make and the results were excellent. My husband is not a fudge fan and he liked it very much!

    cranberry fudge

    Frances Valenza from BROOKLYN, NY

    The fudge took longer than 8 hours to firm up, but it was worth the wait. Even my fussy daughter liked it. I used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet & left out the nuts. I would make it again.

    Awesome Fudge Recipe

    Sandra Dicharo from West Valley City, UT

    I cannot make fudge. I never cook it long enough so we always have to eat it with a spoon but this recipe was a snap. It hardened nicely, I could cut it instead of spooning it out and the taste was incredible.

    GREAT HOLIDAY FUDGE

    B. RAMSEY from QUEEN CREEK, AZ

    This fudge is so easy and the cranberries cut some of the sweet taste. Nuts give the texture an extra zip. Family & friends really love! I have at times added 1/2 of marshmello creme for extra creamy fudge.

    Very Easy

    Diana McGrath from CLARKSTON, MI

    This fudge is a very fast and easy to make recipe. It is pretty good too. Instead of using plastic wrap to line the pan, I used the non-stick aluminum foil and it came out great.

    UNUSUAL FUDGE

    Nancy Oltman from HASTINGS, NE

    This fudge is quick to make with an unusual ingredient of dried cranberries making it pretty and tasty. I plan also to make this recipe using white chocolate chips which I'm sure my family will like too.
