MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2013

I love this recipe! I have made it with different kinds of nuts, it is really good with cashews or with black walnuts!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2013

After reading all the great reviews about this fudge I just had to try it. Plus it looked so easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand (unlike other fudge recipes that use marshmallows or marshmallow creme this one did not). Overall the taste is okay, almost an acquired taste with the cranberries. It will get eaten, but I won't be making it again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2009

I made this during the Christmas holidays with both cranberries and dried cherries. Both were a hit! I took a batch to work and everybody raved over them and got several requests for the recipe. I will try the recipe next with white chocolate chips

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2009

I made this recipe at Christmas. I thought it was very good, but it was quite rich so a small piece was a sufficient serving.
