Cranberry Walnut White Fudge Recipe

Cranberry Walnut White Fudge Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) vanilla or white chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 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.
