She shared her recipe for Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Berry Fudge

This dense and intensely sweet recipe is the holiday season in a bite-size bar. The chocolate and peanut butter give it a velvety quality, while the cranberries brighten it up!

Serves 20

  • 12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1⁄2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1⁄3 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter
  • 3⁄4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • Place all the ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, and then remove and stir. Heat for another 30 seconds, and stir again. Continue 1-2 more times if required to make the mixture smooth.
  • Transfer the fudge to an 8x8 baking pan and smooth it out. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Note: You can alternatively prepare the fudge on the stove. Just be sure to stir continuously.
