Cranberry, Walnut, Rum Fudge

This might be the creamiest most delicious fudge that I’ve ever had.


In November I received a lovely card and package with fudge from Diane, and in this pack was some fudge.  This fudge… it was crazy good. There were nuts, cranberries, BOURBON and chocolate… it was out of this world.
After the first bite I knew I wanted to tweak the Dark Chocolate Walnut Fudge recipe that I already love, and I have to tell y’all – this cranberry, walnut, rum fudge is on a whole different level.

This fudge is out of control delicious.


The past month has been crazy and I’ve barely stepped foot in a kitchen, much less done any recipe creating or photographing.

We got home this weekend, and the first thing I wanted to do was make something to feed my soul; something decadent, rich, creamy, wonderful and happiness inducing.

This fudge meets every single criteria and then some.

The addition of the rum extract, good gracious y’all… it isn’t overwhelming, but it adds that extra oomph to this fudge that just makes you sigh with pleasure and the absolute rightness of it all.

One of the best things about this fudge, other than it’s amazing deliciousness and sheer awesomeness, is how quickly it comes together.  You can have the fudge chilling in the fridge in under 15 minutes.  Seriously.

Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and I personally think this fudge wrapped up in a pretty ribbon will ensure that you are everyone’s favorite Valentine!

    1. Yes you can ! i just made it with regular rum… It is very soft though and it has nothing to do with the rum. Does anyone know how to make it hard so you can keep it at room temperature for long? I want to make for Christmas gifts.

  1. Just made this tonight but with real rum and pistachios instead of the walnuts. It set up quickly and is SUPER yummy. I think I would use less butter next time as there is sort an oily texture on the top of the fudge. Oh, also I did not add any salt because the nuts & butter were salted. Thanks for the great, unique and easy recipe – just what I needed!
