"Easy family favorite that is incredibly delicious and lo-cal at just 81 calories per piece!"
"We have another fudge recipe similar to this one but doesn't have anything added to it. Thought I'd try this one and it's excellent!"
"Very good! My husband really liked it and I liked the addition of the cranberries."
"Fabulous! No need to try & alter it - original couldn't be better. It was rated highest of allmy Christmas treats by family & friends. Combination of sweet vs tart is great!Baking for 66 yrs."
"Did not care for it at all. ......did not resemble fudge. Waste of time and ingredients."
"Sweet n Tart Delight! First batch I followed the recipe and it was GREAT! 2nd batch I switched to pecans and stirred in about 2 tbsp shredded coconut. It was a most delicious variation! I like the lower fat/ calorie aspects of this recipe. The blend of sweet and tart is just plain yummie! I'm a guy with limited cooking experience and this was easy enough that I could do it! Thanks Taste of Home!"
"I did not change this recipe at all. My grandson said it was the best fudge he ever had. On Christmas day, after dinner, he said that he felt like a piece of fruit. I asked him if he wanted and apple. He said that no, he was thinking of a small piece of fruit; like a cranberry. We all laughed because what he really wanted was a piece of fudge!"
"I love this recipe! I have made it with different kinds of nuts, it is really good with cashews or with black walnuts!"
"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."
