I saw this in a grocery store flyer and put here for safe keeping. Haven't tried yet.

I agree Shannon, definitely try this fudge - very good. Reminds me somewhat of the old Chunky chocolate bars with the cranberries in it. Very easy to make and delicious. I did use one can of fat free sweetened condensed milk - helped with the calories and still tasted great. Thanks for posting.
Shannon, you really need to try this as it is scrumptious. Decided to make this as a way to use all the chocolate, fruits and nuts left over from my holiday trays -- a bonus for some of my gift recipients. I think the cranberries truly make this special. I made mine with toasted almonds as I had no pecans. The fudge is rich and very thick, well over an inch high. I found that even after chilling for 2 1/2 hours, the center was still quite soft and would suggest 3 hours for chilling to make cutting easy. Thanks!
