It’s a little shocking to admit, but this was the 1st time I ever made fudge! I’d always heard it was so difficult to make, that is until a friend let me know a few years ago about the easy condensed milk recipe. This year I finally decided to make some, and she’s right, it’s ridiculously simple. The only annoying thing is that most recipes out there call for an American can of condensed milk, which is 14 oz while our Canadian cans are 300 mL, about 10 oz. A little mathematizing and voila, a recipe for Canadian cans!
Cranberry Dark Chocolate Fudge
1¾ cups chopped chocolate or chocolate chips (300 g)
1 300 mL can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
½ cup dried cranberries
In a double boiler or a glass bowl in the microwave, melt the chocolate and condensed milk. Take off the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt then the cranberries. Scoop into a parchment lined 8″ square baking pan, pressing out evenly. Set aside to cool at least a couple of hours then cut into small pieces.
Want to fancy up your fudge’s appearance? Drizzle with some melted white chocolate before cutting and before the chocolate has set, sprinkle with chopped dried cranberries.
