With only 4 ingredients, this is the easiest white fudge, made in the microwave or the stovetop! It is a simple recipe that comes together quickly and lasts for weeks. It travels well, is great for gift-giving, and is a crowd-pleaser. 

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 30 small squares


  • 1 14-oz (397g) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 17 oz white chocolate, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup pistachios
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries


  1. Prepare a medium loaf pan with a wide base, lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper. 
  2. Melt chocolate with condensed milk in the microwave (5-10 second bursts mixing well in between) or on the stovetop over low heat.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the pistachios and cranberries. Mix until they're coated in chocolate.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top. I do this with my hands, the mixture is thick.
  5. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until it’s firm enough to cut.
  6. Remove from the pan with the help of the plastic wrap or paper.
  7. Let it stand for a few minutes to soften if it's too hard.
  8. Eat at room temperature.
  9. It keeps for a several weeks, well wrapped.


  • Organization: read the recipe first and ensure you have ingredients at the correct temperature, equipment, and enough workspace. This will make the process so much easier.
  • If doubling the recipe, an 8-inch square pan is a good choice. Make sure it's lined so it's easy to remove, and cover it well when refrigerating, especially if making the fudge several days or weeks ahead. 
  • Add-ins: use any dried fruit and nut combination you like. 
  • Salty: sprinkle some sea salt after you spread it in the pan before it hardens.
  • Plain: this fudge can be made plain.
  • Storing: it keeps in the refrigerator for weeks, well wrapped.
