Do you prefer  Milk Chocolate or White Chocolate? I’m a white chocolate girl. Not that I don’t enjoy good milk chocolate too but I just prefer white so when I came across this recipe in one of my favorite Christmas treats cookbooks I knew it was next on my to-do list. 

We have this one Christmas cookbook with well worn pages and sticky notes poking out all over it. We have been working our way through that book for years now. I think I found it in the check out line at the grocery store many years ago. Check this list (affiliate link) to see if there might be one in stock. It is called Pillsbury Most Requested Recipes Volume 5, Number 1 (Cookies, Bars, Candies & Breads) This recipe is adapted from that cookbook. 

Only 6 ingredients in this easy recipe for White Fudge made with cake frosting.

INGREDIENTS

There are only 6 ingredients in this recipe and no baking. You can whip this up in minutes then allow it to chill for about an hour before slicing.

Ingredients include; Cream cheese, Canned Vanilla Frosting, White baking chips, Dixie Crystals powdered sugar, Cranberries and Pecans. Just as I adapted the recipe for the flavors we enjoy, you can do the same. Skip the cranberries if you like or maybe you’d prefer pistachio nuts rather than pecans. Do it! Then be sure to come back and tell me how you liked it.

Fudge is always a good choice when gifting food or planning desserts for your Christmas celebrations. It’s quick and easy to make, stores well and most people love it.

Fudge also tends to be really sweet so be sure to cut the pieces small which is another good thing about it. By cutting it small, you get lots more servings!

I made this easy recipe for Cranberry Pecan White Fudge and this recipe for Festive Holiday Bark in the same evening. It was the day before we made our annual trip to the Christmas Tree Farm. I wanted the grandchildren to have some goodies to enjoy while they were decorating the Christmas tree.

One Hint about these goodies. Refrigerate them for storage. They are best fresh from the refrigerator.
