And here we are, the final day of my “blood orange plus cranberries” candy making freakout! If you missed the past few blog entries, be sure to check out our recipes for Blood orange cranberry toffee, Easy blood orange cranberry white chocolate fudge, and TRADITIONAL blood orange cranberry fudge. Whew.
Today’s recipe is very similar to Friday’s recipe, but ends with a very different flavor profile. Again, this one takes about 2 minutes to make – let’s get to it!
Blood Orange Cranberry Dark Chocolate Fudge (Easy Fudge)
3 cups dark chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp blood orange essential oil
1 – 1 1/2 cups sweetened dried cranberries
Pinch of salt
Before getting started, line an 8″ square pan with parchment paper, or grease generously with butter.
Combine dark chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. (Alternatively, combine in a microwave safe bowl and nuke for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth)
Remove from heat, stir in blood orange essential oil, cranberries, and salt. Spread into prepared pan, chill until set.
