Orange cranberry white chocolate fudge is the perfect addition to your holiday treat making!
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.
This is just a basic fudge recipe with chips and condensed milk only you use white chocolate chips instead of chocolate chips. Pistachios, cranberries, and orange zest add not only a great flavor, but also make for a pretty fudge.
Orange Cranberry White Chocolate Fudge Recipe
You can make this fudge either on the stove top or in a microwave. We’ve only made it on a stove top so use your best judgment if you make it in the microwave.
Stove Top Instructions
Combine the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium pan over medium heat stirring constantly. Keep stirring until all the chips have melted. Remove from heat.
Stir in 15-20 drops of orange essential oil. Keep tasting until the orange is as strong as you want it. I used 20-25 drops.
Stir in cranberries, pistachios and half the orange zest.
Line an 8 x 8 square baking pan with foil and lightly coat with oil. Pour the fudge in the pan. Top the fudge with more cranberries and the remaining orange zest, if desired.
Chill until firm. Cut in to small squares for serving.
I made the white chocolate fudge on the stove top, but it would be easy enough to make a 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.
Once the chips are melted, follow the stove top directions above.
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.
