White chocolate double almond cranberry fudge recipe

Peppermint Fudge

There’s something so appealing about a box of white chocolate fudge to give as a homemade gift from the kitchen.

So I’m sharing not one, but two white chocolate fudge recipes. Both can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks.

Have fun choosing.

Cranberry White Chocolate Double Almond Fudge and Peppermint Candy Cane Fudge are easy to make. No candy thermometer needed. Let the little ones help you.

Be careful when cooking white chocolate. It tends to burn more easily than darkness, so watch the heat.

Cranberry and white chocolate double almond fudge

Cranberry Double Almond Fudge

Salted almonds add a nice contrast. If you are using 12 oz of chocolate, you may need a little more milk.

Ingredients

1 square pan, approximately 8″

11-12 oz white chocolate chips or bars, chopped (I use Ghiradelli)

2/3 to 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

3/4 teaspoon almond extract

Grated zest of an orange

1/2 cup or more dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

1/2 to 3/4 cup toasted salted almonds, coarsely chopped

Instructions

Remove the white chocolate milk mixture from the heat when a few small lumps remain

Prepare the mold: tear off a piece of aluminum foil larger than the mold. Shape it on the outside of the bottom. Lift the mold. Invert the pan and place foil in the shape, leaving an inch or 2 overhang to use as “handles” to lift the fudge out of the pan. Spray with cooking spray.

Place the chopped chocolate in the mold and pour the milk over it.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. When mixture is almost smooth but a few lumps remain, remove from heat.

Stir in extract and zest until smooth.

Add the almonds and mix.

Pour into prepared pan.

Refrigerate until firm and cut into pieces. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.

Make it pink by adding a drop of red food coloring when you add the extract. If you are using 12 oz of chocolate, you may need a little more milk.

11-12 oz white chocolate chips or bars, chopped (I use Ghiradelli)

2/3 to 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

3/4 to 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

1-1/4 cup finely crushed peppermints, divided into 1-cup and 1/4-cup measures
