This no-bake white chocolate fudge is creamy and decadent, filled with cranberries and a hint of citrus. Try my cranberry bliss bars or puppy chow next!

Cranberry Bliss Fudge

Thanksgiving is over, which means I am headed full steam into Christmas mode! First on the list is my Cranberry Bliss Fudge.

I made this recently and brought it into my office and several people went out of their way to tell me they had thrown their diets out the window to eat this. It’s that good.

Cranberry Bliss Fudge

What exactly is “cranberry bliss”?

This fudge is creamy and decadent, with white chocolate as the main flavor attraction. It’s filled with cranberries and provides a hint of citrus in each bite.

The smell? Oh god, the smell. It smells phenomenal. I found myself opening the container it was in just to inhale the scent. 

Maybe I should figure out how to turn this scent into a candle…

Cranberry Bliss Fudge

This fudge recipe is no bake

There’s no baking involved here, but there is the element of patience as you wait for it to set in the fridge. I know, it’s the worst.

But the great news is that this is super easy to make and you can make large quantities well ahead of time for a holiday party.

Do I have to add the cranberry puree swirls on top?

The steps to make the cranberry swirls are totally optional, and I did it mostly because I had some leftover cranberry puree and I thought it would look pretty.

You could easily leave that out and it would taste just as good. 

But, really… look how pretty.
