Fruit and Nut Chocolate Fudge Clusters

Easy to make, but fancy to taste!

Easy to make, but fancy to taste!

This is a super-easy recipe for a tasty fudge, that can be whipped up in mere minutes. I always keep the basics for this recipe in my cupboards, in case I need to make a last-minute dessert.

I made this recently for a picnic in a park, and while it wasn’t consumed there, it was happily eaten by friends after a dinner outing the same day. We stood on the streets of Toronto and chatted and licked our sticky fingers, and I nearly blushed from all the compliments on the fudge. It’s that good!

And what else is good about it, is that it’s sooo customizable! Swap in whatever fruit and nuts you like (candied orange peel sounds good), or mix in other add-ins. Maybe Reese’s Pieces? Or sprinkle the top with coconut before the fudge sets, and pretty it up. As I said, super-customizeable. And then you can call it your own creation, and everyone will ooh and ahh over your prowess in the kitchen!

Ready to make this super-easy and tasty dish? Let’s get our fudge on!

Fruit and Nut Chocolate Fudge Clusters

 In a pot over medium heat, stir together condensed milk and chocolate chips, stirring until melted and completely mixed. Remove from heat and mix in vanilla extract and table cream. Stir in walnuts and cranberries. Dollop into little paper cups, placed in a mini-muffin tray for stability. Chill until firm. Serve at room temperature, or slightly chilled. Enjoy!

These little fudge bites store really well, so you can make them up to a week in advance (not that they last that long in my house), which makes them great for the holidays. Or anytime you’re craving chocolate, which we all know I do!
