White Christmas Fudge

I am totally obsessed with holiday recipes that feature cranberries. I just really love the flavor that they add to Christmas treats like breads and cookies, so imagine my delight when I realized how great dried fruit (in this case dried cranberries and cherries) could taste in a fudge recipe!

This lovely white Christmas fudge is one of my favorite holiday dessert recipes!

  2. Would like to make this delicious recipe for someone with nut allergy, can you suggest a substitute for the almond extract and almonds.

  3. Sorry…meant to say that I like the addition of dried fruit.  Pistachio might also go well.  Love your blog.
