Home cooking & baking White Chocolate & Cranberry Fudge

White Chocolate & Cranberry Fudge

by greenrabbitdesigns

I have a lovely sweet treat for you today! I got a leaflet through the post from Tesco the other day and after removing my money off vouchers (every little helps or so they say) I was just about to recycle it when I noticed this recipe on it and thought ‘yum’!

So after gathering together my ingredients and lining a 10×8 inch baking tray with baking parchment I began melting the sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a heavy pan.

Heat the mixture gently until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil, stirring all the time with a wooden spoon, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. The recipe states that it is a good idea to set a timer for this!

Immediately remove from the heat and add the cranberries and chocolate. Allow the chocolate to melt, then quickly stir the mixture and pour straight into the tin as it begins to thicken immediately.

Spread it in the tin and allow to chill for an hour or so ( I put mine in the fridge when it cooled) until it is firm, then cut into squares.

And what does it taste like I hear you ask, it’s absolutely delicious and I suspect won’t last too long in this house!!

Before I go I just want to say a big thank you to my lovely friend Amanda of Itchin’ Stitchin’ for featuring my blog on her Handmade Crafts Blog Tour. It was such a lovely thing to do and a complete surprise. So thanks again Amanda for being so kind! 🙂

Can you believe tomorrow is Friday again, where do the weeks disappear too? Hope you’re all organised for Christmas and can take some time to relax and perhaps make some fudge!

Enjoy your weekend ! 🙂

Thank you so much, Viv, for sharing! I will try that, but I need to replace the cranberries with something else as I haven’t got any…Any suggestions?

And oh dear, it’s almost weekend again, only a week until Christmas!!

Happy day and wonderful weekend, Viv!

Yours,
Mia

Oh Vivienne, this recipe looks like it would be perfect for my man. He absolutely adores both white chocolate and fudge so I think this will be definitely be on the ‘to do’ list over the holidays… 🙂

Thank you so very much for the christmas wishes, I do hope you and your family have the most wonderful time too and all the very best for the new year!

Oh, and I just want to say a huge thank you for all your lovely comments over on my wee blog. It is absolutely lovely to have you and I shall look forward to seeing you there in 2011… 🙂
