I have been making this cranberry pistachio fudge for years, usually for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and every time I make it, everyone is very excited and it is usually devoured in a matter of minutes. Once you try it you can hardly stop at just one piece as it is simply irresistible and quite addictive.

This fudge recipe that uses milk powder is without a doubt one of my favorite fudge recipes as you can better control the sugar and the results are always amazing. I hardly recommend trying this chocolate fudge along with the white cranberry fudge fudge, as both are simply out of this world.

You can always make variations to these fudge recipes to suit your taste by adding different fruits or nuts, citrus zest, different spices, coffee, and the list goes on. Hope you try this cranberry fudge fudge, because I’m sure you’ll be happy like us. have fun!
