    1/4 cup Butter (half stick)
    2 1/2 cup Sugar
    1/3 cup Evaporated Milk (half a small can)
    1/3 cup Cranberry Juice Concentrate*
    11-12 oz White Chips (1 package)
    6-7 oz. Marshmallow Creme/Fluff (1 Jar)
    (may substitute 2 cups mini-marshmallows)
    1 cup Craisins (optional)
    1/2 tsp Orange Extract

Directions:
Line a 9” x 9” pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Place white
chips, orange extract, craisins (optional) and marshmallow cream
into a 3-quart saucepan (or Pyrex bowl) and set aside. Heat milk at
Medium setting until warm then add sugar. Bring to a rolling boil
(Medium-High), stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Reduce
flame to minimum setting which maintains the boil. Continue to
boil for [8] full minutes. At [4] minutes into the boil add the cranberry
juice concentrate and STOP THE TIMER. The cool cranberry juice
will probably stop the boil. Bring the solution back to a boil and re-
start the TIMER for another [4] minutes. You want to boil for a total of
[8] minutes -or- if using a candy thermometer continue boiling until
the boiling temperature reaches 235°F but do not exceed 9
minutes rolling boiling total. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir
until dissolved (but no more than 30 seconds).

Pour hot mixture over white chips, orange extract, and
marshmallow cream without scraping the sides of the hot
saucepan. Mix until the chips are melted. Mix thoroughly and cast
into prepared pan. Cool at room temperature. Chill in
refrigerator prior to cutting. Remove from pan, remove foil, cut into
squares.

*NOTE: Cranberry Juice Concentrate can be found in fruit juice isle,
it comes in a 12 oz can that looks like a soda can and is
reconstituted by adding water. If you can’t find it, you can use frozen
cranberry juice mix -- let it thaw and use 1/3 cup. Use the rest of the
concentrate to make cranberry juice to drink with the fudge.

*NOTE: Adding the cranberry juice in the middle of the 8 minute boil
is an easier way to adjust the boil time without getting complicated.
Boil for 4 minutes, add the cranberry juice... and the boil usually
stops from 1 to 4 minutes... then once boiling again start the clock
ticking again.
