This is a delicious treat that combines the tartness from the dried cranberries with rich dark chocolate fudge. Because of the red cranberries that dot the chocolate fudge like holly berries, it makes the perfect edible holiday gift.

  • 1 Cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 Cup evaporated milk
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Combine the cranberries and corn syrup in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce until about 3 tablespoons of liquid remains. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the chocolate chips, and stir until completely melted.
