Cranberry-Walnut White Fudge

A very unusual fudge recipe that uses prepared frosting that you buy. This white fudge is very easy-to-make and very delicious. You'll love this very rich and delicious fudge.

Recipe Type: Candy
Yields: 36 pieces
Prep time: 15 min


1 (12-ounce) package white vanilla chips
1/2 cup powdered (confectioners') sugar
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup prepared vanilla frosting (the kind you buy at the store)
3/4 cup coarsely-chopped walnut or pecans*
2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries**
1 teaspoon grated orange zest (peel)
Macadamia nuts may be substituted.

** I also have substituted candied cherries and dried apricots. If using chopped candied cherries, drain well before using.

Line a 9-inch square baking dish with aluminum foil, extending foil over the edges. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the vanilla chips, stirring until smooth; remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla frosting; blend well. Stir in melted vanilla chips, walnut, cranberries, and orange zest.
Spread fudge mixture into the prepared baking dish. Refrigerate approximately 1 to 2 hours or until the fudge is firm.
When the fudge is firm, remove from the refrigerator. Remove from the dish by lifting the aluminum foil and removing the foil from the fudge; discard aluminum foil. Cut into squares.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use wax paper between fudge layers.
Serve fudge at room temperature.
Yields 36 pieces.
