Christmas Fudge with Cranberries Recipe

Here is an easy recipe for Christmas Fudge. But what is it that makes this fudge Christmassy? I have replaced some of the caster sugar with some flavoured icing sugar, Christmas Punch from Sugar and Crumbs. I also added a handful of dried cranberries. I was a little unsure how it would taste as this was the first time I have used the flavoured icing sugar. Although I did enjoy the taste at Cake International show in November where I first discovered it.

I used a different recipe to my usual, using condensed milk. A recipe from Nestle's website but with a few changes to make it into Christmas Fudge. I did not use a thermometer or even the dropping some of the fudge is a glass of cold water method and it still worked perfectly. I was very pleased with the result both in taste and texture, and it was well received by all who tasted it.   I will be making more of this tasty fudge to parcel up as Christmas foodie gifts.

Instructions
  • Place all the ingredients except the cranberries into a heavy bottomed saucepan.
  • Melt over a low heat until all the sugar has dissolved, keep stirring.
  • Bring to the boil (keep stirring) then simmer for 10-15 minutes again keep stirring do not let the fudge catch on the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove from the heat and add the dried cranberries. Continue to stir for 10 minutes, the fudge mixture will start to thicken.
  • Pour into your tin before it gets so thick you can not pour it.
  • Leave to cool. Once cooled lift the Christmas Fudge out of the tin using the baking parchment and cut into cubes.

For something a little different why not soak the cranberries in Port.

  6. I'm hopeless at making fudge, it always ends up runny, so I am impressed with this! I like the idea of using the flavoured icing sugar, I bought some of that in saled caramel flavour at their stand at the Cake and Bake show but I haven't used it yet. Thanks for linking up with Alphabakes!
