    Serves: 24 

    • 1 teaspoon butter
    • 3 cups (550g) white chocolate chips
    • 1 (395g) can sweetened condensed milk
    • 75g butter
    • 2 teaspoons rum flavouring

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:8hours setting  ›  Ready in:8hours15min 

    1. Grease a 22cm square cake pan with 1 teaspoon butter.
    2. Combine white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and 75g butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until white chocolate starts to melt, about 3 minutes. Stir until smooth. Continue to microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is completely melted.
    3. Stir rum flavoring, vanilla extract, and nutmeg into the white chocolate mixture. Fold in cranberries and walnut pieces. Pour fudge into the buttered baking pan, spreading it evenly into the corners.
    4. Let fudge cool until set, 8 hours to overnight.

    Cook's Notes:

    Try using dried apricot pieces or other dried fruit instead of the cranberries. If using dried apples, try using apple pie spice or ground cinnamon in place of some or all of the nutmeg.

    Wow! What a great recipe! I loved the texture and flavors- I think next time I might even double the mix-in amounts. I did sub pecans for walnuts because of personal preference. I love the submitter's idea of using dried apples and cinnamon, that would be great! I can also see this being great with orange zest added. Yum!  -  09 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    11.9.16 This is a very simple recipe to make, and it comes together quickly. I did have to microwave it for about 8 minutes for all of the white chocolate chips to melt. This may be a personal taste thing, but I'll cut the rum extract back to 1 tsp next time. Forget about chocolate fudge, and remember this recipe for the upcoming Holiday Gifts From the Kitchen.  -  09 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was just okay. I find the taste of condensed milk to be a bit too dominant in this recipe. Won’t make again.  -  13 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
