Easy, Creamy -- Nobody Can Eat Just One

by E. Etienne , LOUISVILLE, KY on Mar. 2008

Although I made these for the Christmas holidays, I am tempted to try them again at Easter and Derby. These were very simple to make, although it took me a bit to find crystallized ginger that was REASONABLY priced (I located some at Whole Foods Market, where it was sold in varied amounts), but in the end, it was worth it. I had enough for my own personal use and to have as gifts. Creamy, they melted like butter in the mouth; not overly sweet, but satisfying enough to quench any sweet craving. You have the cross between that tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the morsels, and the ginger adds a nice little kick. Your major problem is likely running out, or finding that you're eating way too many yourself!

Special Tea Party Favors

by J. Julienne , KNOXVILLE, TN on Mar. 2008

I made this fudge for my subdivision's annual Garden Club Valentine's Tea last year. I placed two pieces in a favor box for the ladies to take home with them on their way out the door after the Tea party. It was a hit because it was so unusual with the cranberries as a great red accent tying into the Valentine's Tea theme. Also, the ladies did not guess that crystallized ginger was part of the ingredients that made it so special and memorable. One of the members asked for the recipe and made them for this year's annual Tea Party which she hosted at her home. It might show up for next year's Tea party, it's that good!

Definately different!

by J. JEANNA , SIBLEY, IA on Jan. 2008

This fudge was definately different-some people were afraid to try it due to there being fruity chunks in it, but I thought it was good. Makes a farily large amount.

Outstanding! This white chocolate ginger, cranberry fudge is as rich and delicious as it is beautiful. The ginger reduces the sweetness while adding a touch of warmth. An absolutely wonderful treat for cool winter days. A big hit with everyone who has tasted it.

This fudge was easy to make, and created a very attractive finished product. Looks lovely in a glass dish! The ginger and cranberry flavors mingled very well. The fudge was rich, but not overbearingly sweet. I'll definitely make this again!
