8 hrs 14 mins
1 9-inch square pan


  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 3 cups white chocolate chips

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • cup butter

  • 2 teaspoons rum flavoring

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, or to taste

  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins®)

  • 1 cup walnut pieces


  1. Grease a 9-inch square pan with 1 teaspoon butter.

  2. Combine white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and 1/3 cup butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until white chocolate starts to melt, about 3 minutes. Stir until smooth. Continue to microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is completely melted.

  3. Stir rum flavoring, vanilla extract, and nutmeg into the white chocolate mixture. Fold in cranberries and walnut pieces. Pour fudge into the buttered baking pan, spreading it evenly into the corners.

  4. Let fudge cool until set, 8 hours to overnight.

Cook's Notes:

Try using dried apricot pieces or other dried fruit instead of the cranberries. If using dried apples, try using apple pie spice or ground cinnamon in place of some or all of the nutmeg.

Nutmeg varies a lot. You usually need less if you're grating it fresh than if you're using a five-year-old jar of ground nutmeg.
