Festive White Chocolate Fudge | December Diary


Ooo, are you ready for a last-minute, deliciously sweet and naughty treat for your Christmas table?? I think I may just have the recipe that will top your day off! It’s simple. It’s easy. And it’s delicious!

This silky smooth fudge is packed full of juicy ruby-red cranberries, festively green pistachios and lashings of snowy white shredded coconut!


The ingredients:
400g of white chocolate
400g tin of sweetened condensed milk
150g of unsalted butter
1 cup of desiccated coconut
1 cup of shelled & chopped pistachios
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

The making:
First, break up the chocolate into a large heat-proof bowl and then add the condensed milk, butter and vanilla.
Slowly melt this all together over a saucepan of gently simmering water.
Take the bowl off the heat and carefully stir in the coconut, pistachios and cranberries.
Pour the mixture into a paper-lined tin that measures 20cmx30cm (8″x12″) and then evenly smooth the top using a flat spatula.
Place the tin full of fudge into the fridge for about four hours (overnight is best!) to set.
Finally, remove the fudge from the fridge and cut it into small squares using a sharp knife.



I wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas and hope you enjoy the day with family, friends and your community!

Thank you to each and everyone of you for your amazing support and lovely words when it has come to my blog and YouTube channel this year! You’ve made my year one that will always mean so much to me! I really couldn’t ask for better friends than what you all are to me!

Merry Christmas, Friends!!

    Amanda, I have been wondering what beautiful white background fabric you use and prefer. I love whites and the like for my background and was wondering what holds up the best. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much!
      The white fabric I use in my quilts is just a basic solid available at my local fabric store. Most of the big fabric companies have their own line of solid coloured fabric these days – I’ve only really used RJR Fabrics Cotton Supreme range and find that it’s quite nice to use. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. One of the best things of 2015 for me was finding you and your quilting tutorials. You are the best and most adorable teacher! Wishing you every happiness in 2016 and thank you for all you do. Christmas Greetings from New Jersey, USA
