A visit to several Oregon cranberry farms inspired my unusual fruit-flavored white fudge. I make it for family and friends at holidays and for special occasions. I was thrilled when the recipe earned first place at our county fair.

  1. Line an 8-in. square pan with foil and butter the foil with 1 teaspoon butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, bring the sugar, sour cream and remaining butter to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage), about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chips, marshmallow creme and vanilla until smooth. Fold in walnuts and cranberries. Pour into prepared pan. Let stand at room temperature until cool.
  3. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 3 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

"I made it exactly as described and it's delicious! Amazing, even. I do hope it sets a bit more overnight, as it's just a tad loose."

"I've made this the last 3 yrs, although it is really rich, it gets excellent compliments. It also is moist, great for sending to troops overseas."

"I regret wasting all the ingredients it took to try this recipe. I tossed the whole thing in the trash. I followed instructions even used candy thermometer, but didn't set up. Something is seriously wrong with this recipe. I took a chance on this recipe and lost."

"BTW: This recipe makes TWO 8-in square pans or ONE 9X12-in rectangular pan. Cut into one inch by one inch squares for a total of about 80 pieces. If you make this entire recipe in one 8" sq pan then you will end up with twelve 2" X3" X4" pieces."

"Absolutley wonderful fudge. It's soft, fluffy, and so tastey! It reminds me of divinity fudge but a slightly sour taste due to the sour cream. It left a funny after taste but otherwise was fantastic. The presentation of this fudge is beautiful. Looks just like the picture."
