While it sounds odd, cranberry fudge has been around for a long time. I admit it took me awhile to be convinced that cranberries could be mixed with chocolate and taste fantastic … now I wish I hadn’t waited so long!

Cranberry Fudge Recipe

You will need:

  • 9″ square pan
  • tin foil
  • wooden spoon
  • cooking spray (we use Pam but any will do)


  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk (reduced fat works, too)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (6 ounces) dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


Line a 9-inch square pan with foil. Coat the foil with cooking spray; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine chocolate chips and corn syrup.

Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until thickened and glossy, about 5 minutes. Stir in cranberries and walnuts.

Spread into prepared pan; refrigerate until firm. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan; toss the foil. Cut fudge into 1-in. squares.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

A delicious year ’round treat!
