Orange cranberry white chocolate fudge is the perfect addition to your holiday treat making! Spend time in the kitchen with your family and learn more about our partner GE Café™’s line of appliances for the home cook.
I have always loved holiday baking and treat making. As a kid I would spend hours pouring over magazines and cook books dreaming of the cookies and candies we would make in December. One of my favorite holiday treats to make is fudge. I love the standard fudge, but even more, I love fun and inventive fudge recipes. Butter pecan fudge is always a staple. My kids love cookies and cream fudge. This year I decided to make a white chocolate fudge recipe using my favorite winter flavor combination, orange cranberry.
I usually satisfy my orange cranberry craving by baking orange cranberry muffins. And I’m dreaming of baking those muffins in one of the GE Café™ series ovens. My appliances, especially my oven and stove, get a lot of use and I love that the GE Café™ series of appliances are restaurant quality appliances made for the home cook. Plus look at that double oven. Be still my heart! Think of all the baking my kids and I could get done. The range is perfect for gathering the kids to make a batch of delicious fudge.
I made the white chocolate fudge on the stove top, but it would be easy enough to make a GE Café™ microwave, too. Just put the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl and cook in short time increments. Stir in between each cooking time. I’d start with 30 seconds and then go down to 15 second increments. Making the fudge in the microwave is also a great way to get kids involved cooking.
One of my favorite things about this fudge is that not only does it taste amazing, but it just looks so pretty! The white and red with a hint of green from the pistachios and orange from the zest just looks so festive. Set out on a pretty holiday platter, next to a gorgeous GE Café™ oven range, it is sure to be the hit of any holiday gathering.
