A cranberry and pistachio fudge recipe to get you ready for Christmas

Spread good tidings with this gorgeous Christmas Cranberry and Pistachio Fudge recipe created by Siúcra.

Dotted with nutty pistachios and tart cranberries, this seasonal sweet treat makes for the perfect edible gift.

INGREDIENTS

100g pistachios

2 x 397g condensed milk tins

220g Siúcra Caster Sugar

40g butter

400g white chocolate chips

120g dried cranberries

METHOD

Line a 20cm square tin with non-stick parchment paper.

On a tray, toast the pistachios in the oven at 160C for five minutes. Allow to cool.

In a large pot, add the condensed milk, Siúcra Caster Sugar and butter. Over a low heat, whisk the ingredients together for 8-10 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.

Increase the heat to a simmer and continue whisking until the mix starts to thicken.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate chips, stir until they have melted. Fold in the cranberries and half the pistachios.

Pour the mix into the prepared tin and sprinkle on the remaining pistachios. Allow to set in the fridge for 1-2 hours, the fudge should be slightly soft.

Once cooled, cut into squares and serve. Wrap in cellophane bags to create a nice edible gift for friends and family.
