Made from five simple ingredients, with only 10 minutes of cooking time, this Christmas fudge is easy to make, completely customisable, and perfect for sharing.

This white choc fudge recipe requires a few ingredients you may already have sitting in your pantry: white chocolate buttons, sweetened condensed milk, pistachios, dried apricots and dried cranberries. With so few items needed, choose the best quality products you can get your hands on to let the ingredients shine for the best results.
When melting the white chocolate and condensed milk, ensure you use a clean, dry bowl. Any moisture can cause the mixture to seize, creating a thick and lumpy texture. While this recipe calls for the ingredients to be melted in a saucepan over low heat, it is possible to use the microwave. Ensure you’re heating in bursts and stirring often.
As an added step, you can also soak the dried cranberries and apricots in boiling water. Let them sit for 10-15 minutes, then discard the water. You’ll be left with plumper, juicer and softer fruit to elevate your white chocolate and condensed milk fudge to the next level.
The beauty of making your own condensed milk and white chocolate fudge at home means you can flex some creativity in the kitchen. Customise your cranberry pistachio fudge by opting for a different chocolate base, such as milk, dark or even ruby chocolate. Add and omit different fillings like desiccated coconut, rice bubbles or 100s and 1000s.
When you’re ready to serve your cranberry and pistachio fudge, remove it from the baking tray and place it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife and firm pressure to slice it into even strips, then into smaller pieces. For perfect slices, use a ruler to evenly measure each piece. Wipe the knife clean between each cut and warm the blade with hot water to help glide through the fudge.
For gifting, place the perfectly cut white chocolate and pistachio fudge into cellophane bags adorned with a bow or secured with string. You can also package the white fudge in a small gift box lined with baking paper. If you’re serving it at an event, keep it rustic by returning the cut pistachio fudge into a baking tin topped with extra nut pieces so guests can help themselves. You can also place the fudge piled high on a serving platter surrounded by other Christmas treats like our mini Christmas puddings, fruit mince pies and gingerbread men.
