Just enough fudge to hold all the goodies together. (Do not be afraid of the ginger.) Pretty colors lend a stained glass look to the fudge


1/2 Cup dried cranberries
1/2 Cup Dried apricots -cut into 1/2 inch dice
1/2 Cup roasted pistachios-coarsely chopped
1/2 Cup crystalized ginger-cut into small pieces
2/3 Cup sugar
1 can 5 ounces Carnation EVAPORATED milk
1/4 tsp salt
8 ounces (1 1/2 cups) Nestle's white chocolate chips
1 1/2 Cups miniature marshmallows


Spray an 8 in square pan with cooking spray. Fit a sheet of foil in the pan so you can use the foil overhang to pull the fudge out of the pan.Place cranberries, apricots, pistachios and ginger in a medium bowl. Set aside.Then bring sugar, milk and salt to a full boil in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and starts to turn a pale caramel, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, quickly stir in marshmallows, then chocolate and stir until the marshmallows start to melt. Pour mixture into the bowl with the fruit and nuts; continue to mix until all the fruit and nuts are evenly distributed. Press fudge into prepared pan. Refrigerate for about 1-2 hours. Makes about 42 pieces.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
