Hi! I’m Coleen, and I blog over at The Redhead Baker. I share family friendly recipes for home cooks of all skill levels. I like to make baking easy, sharing the “why” behind the recipe. I’ve been blogging for six years, and my fiance and I live with our four-year-old son and two rescue dogs.

Christmas is my favorite time of year, and in addition to nearly a dozen kinds of Christmas cookies, I love making different flavors of fudge. My quick fudge starts with two ingredients: condensed milk and chocolate, then can be varied with different additions. In this version, I use orange zest and dried cranberries.

White chocolate burns at a much lower temperature than milk or dark chocolate, so keep your oven burner on the lowest flame, and stir constantly to avoid scorching. Also, chopping your chocolate finely will help it melt evenly and avoid scorching.

Once thoroughly chilled, cut the fudge with a chef’s knife. If serving on a dessert tray, place the pieces on flatted cupcake liners. If giving away as a gift, place a few pieces of fudge in a cellophane treat bag and tie with a festive ribbon!

This is a very soft fudge, so keep it chilled as much as possible to keep its shape. If you want firmer fudge, reduce the amount of sweetened condensed milk to half a can (about 3/4 of a cup).

    We weren’t planning on making fudge this year – but after seeing this, I am rethinking my decision – this looks amazing and only 4 ingredients!
