🔪 How to Make Cranberry Orange Fudge
Like all fudge recipes, this one is simple and straightforward. It only takes a few minutes and a few simple steps.
Step 1: Prep
Spray a 9×9 baking ban with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper. Microwave the flour for about 1 1/2 minutes to kill any bacteria.
Step 2: Cream Butter and Sugar
In a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Step 3: Add Flour and Salt
Add flour and salt to the creamed butter and sugar.
Step 4: Combine Almond Bark and Condensed Milk
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave at 10-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until melted. Then, add the condensed milk and stir until smooth.
Step 5: Make the Fudge
Add the white chocolate mixture to the flour mixture and blend on low until blended. Then, add the orange juice and cranberries and mix again.
Step 6: Color the Fudge
Add the orange food coloring to the fudge and pulse the mixer a couple of times to swirl the coloring into the fudge.
Step 7: Chill
Pour the fudge into the baking dish and press it down evenly with a spatula. Chill for at least 2 hours until firm, then, cut it into 1 to 2-inch squares. Enjoy!
