My family loves this recipe. I've also used fresh cranberries in the fall. I chop them, then rinse them in a strainer to remove some of the seeds. After they have been well drained (I also put them on paper towels to try to get them as dry as possible), I coat the cranberries with 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup powdered sugar and add them to the fudge instead of dried cranberries.

This is excellent and very easy! My family prefers plain fudge but all my friends said you couldn't really tell their were cranberries in it. Next time I'm going to try cherries and blueberries. It adds something healthy with the not so healthy.

Easy, tasty especially for the holidays! My family enjoyed. Cranberries provide the different added touch-cuts the sweetness. Definitely will make for gifts.

This was very goodand the cranberries gave it some color. Most of the people that tried it ,thought they were rasins. Maybe I will add some the next time I make this. Great gift idea.

We were looking for something different for our first day of school snack, and tried this one. Good fudge. The kids think they would rather have raisins, but the recipe could be adapted for that, too. We will make it again. Very easy, and they can help.

What a great recipe. This was a hit at our Open House; everyone loved it & asked where it was response was that the ingredients are right over there as I pointed to my kitchen. Many people were surprised.

wow! What a hit this fudge made at my Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone couldn't believe that I made it. I thought it tasted like the chocolate covered raisins that I loved as a child. I highly recommend this one for any get together or gifts at Christmas.

I changed the recipe by adding golden raisins with the dried cranberries. It turned out yummy.
