Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Ingredients Info:
  • white chocolate – because the white chocolate is the main ingredient in this recipe, I recommend using a good quality brand (such as Cadbury, Whittakers, Hersheys, Lindt or Nestle).
  • sweetened condensed milk – choose full fat (not skim) sweetened condensed milk as it sets firmer than the skim version.
  • pistachios – choose roasted and unsalted pistachios. You can buy them already shelled or shell your own.
  • dried cranberries – also known as craisins. These can be bought from the dried fruit section of the supermarket.
More Recipe Tips:
Storing - This fudge is a semi-soft fudge which means that it’s best stored in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it. It can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Texture - Because this fudge contains no glucose syrup (which is what makes fudge very firm), it has a beautiful, soft and creamy texture… my favourite type of fudge! However, this does also mean that it needs to be kept in the fridge.
