Serve these wonderful chocolate, marshmallows and cranberries candies with a nutty twist to your guests as a homemade gift.
Updated Aug 6, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 bags (12-ounce size) semisweet chocolate chips (3 cups)
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows or 16 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or chopped candied cherries
  • 1/4 cup white baking chips, melted, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Line square pan, 9x9x2 inches, with aluminum foil, leaving 1 inch of foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. Grease foil with butter.
  • 2
    Place chocolate chips, marshmallows and milk in 8-cup microwavable measuring cup. Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until marshmallows and chips are melted and can be stirred smooth.
  • 3
    Stir in vanilla, nuts and cherries. Immediately pour into pan. Drizzle with melted white baking chips. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
  • 4
    Remove fudge from pan, using foil edges to lift. Cut into 9 rows by 8 rows, or cut into diamond shapes.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a scrumptious new flavor twist, omit the cranberries, substitute hazelnuts for the pistachios and add 2 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur with the nuts.
  • tip 2
    If you like luscious, creamy chocolate fudge, just leave out the nuts and cranberries for a smooth, rich chocolate treat.
