I used 1 1/4 cups cranberries instead of the whole bag. I boiled for 7 minutes and my fudge set with no problem. I did mix the vanilla sugar and milk together before hand I don't know if that makes any difference and I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. I really liked the mix of sweet and tart however I used generic semi-sweet chocolate and I think it showed in the quality. Next time I will user higher quality chocolate but I will definitly be making this again. Read More

This recipe is delicious and on the third try I got it to set beautifully. It takes longer than 5-7 minutes to boil the cranberry/corn syrup mixture down to the right consistency which should be jam-like. It took me more like 10-15 minutes. If too much liquid is left in the mixture the fudge will be runny and if you boil it too much the cranberries will dry out and get crunchy and the fudge will be very hard. To set the fudge you should also let it sit for 12-24 hours in the fridge. If it's too tart for your tastes mix some condense milk in with your evaporated milk to sweeten it up. mmmm! Read More

Yummy but I couldn't get it to set. No problem - I froze it rolled it into balls dipped it in chocolate and made the most wonderful truffles. Melt 1/8 lb parafin with 1 lg. bag chocolate if you'd like to do the same. Read More

The fudge is very good but it didn't set up for me. Any suggestions on what I might have done wrong? Would make it again if it would get firmer. Read More

The reason why ur fudges did not set is coz' of TOO MUCH of CRANBERRIES. The original recipe calls only for 1 1/4 (1.25) cups of cranberries & not a 12-oz package which is like 2 cups/more of em'. You'll get a fabulous fudge that sets in a few hours. I also added a few drops of orange extract since orange flavor works well with cranberries & a handful of finely chopped walnuts. AND BOY!! WAS THE FUDGE YUMMY!! Read More
