Cranberry-Orange White Fudge

I remember when I was younger, my mom always used to get those round chocolate whack and unwrap orange balls during the holidays. She has always loves orange flavors around the holidays. So to me the holiday isn't the same unless there is a little orange inspiration lingering somewhere in the goodies. 

Cranberry-Orange White Fudge

3 Cups White chocolate chips
1 14 oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk (Not Evaporated)
1 1/2 tsp.  Orange Extract
1/2 C. Chopped dried cranberries
Dash of Salt

In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk with salt. Remove from heat, stir in cranberries and orange extract. (My tip is to let the fudge cool just a bit so the extract doesn't evaporate from the heat).

Line a 8" or 9" square pan with wax paper. Spread fudge mixture evenly into pan. Chill 2 hours or until firm. 

Turn the fudge onto cutting board; peel off paper and cut into desired size squares. Store fudge covered in refrigerator.
