- You can use slivered almonds instead of shaved ones if you’d prefer them.
How To Make White Chocolate Cranberry Fudge With Almonds
White Chocolate Cranberry Fudge With Almonds Ingredients:
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons shaved almonds
8 x 8-inch pan
Parchment paper, aluminum foil, or nonstick spray
Large spatula or wooden spoon
Step 1: Take out an 8×8-inch pan and line it with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or spray it well with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 2: In a microwave-safe bowl, add the milk, butter, and chocolate chips together. Give them a stir or two with a rubber spatula and then place the dish in the microwave.
Step 3: Microwave in 30 second intervals (stirring after each interval) until the mixture is melted together and smooth.
If you prefer not to use the microwave, melt your chocolate chip mixture in a medium saucepan or double boiler over medium heat, making sure to stir frequently so that your chocolate does not burn.
Step 4: Add your chopped cranberries to the large bowl and stir.
Step 5: Pour the entire mixture into your prepared pan and top the white fudge with your crunchy almonds.
Step 6: Let your creamy chocolate fudge cool and harden for at least an hour for the best results. Enjoy!
How To Store Leftover Almond Cranberry White Chocolate Fudge
Store any leftovers in the square pan under plastic wrap or in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Can I Use White Baking Chocolate, Almond Bark, Or Candy Melts For This Recipe?
No, I would highly recommend sticking with white chocolate chips. Anyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy any version of this sweet treat, but overall these substitutes aren’t great ideas.
None of these will harden the way you are looking for your fudge to harden, but if you are in a real pinch and need a substitute, baking chocolate is your best option of the three.
