Festive Fudge

I've been doing a bit of Christmas baking to put together as a little gift for some friends and neighbours. In the freezer I have chocolate and hazelnut truffles, gingernut and apricot square, chocolate shortbread and plain shortbread shapes. Today I made vanilla (haha as I wrote that I just realised I never put the vanilla in!!whoops) and cranberry fudge. I decided to try using a cutter to make it into star shapes. I was very pleased with the result.
Here's the recipe if you want to give it a go yourself
(it makes a really big batch so may want to halve it first time round)

Vanilla and Cranberry Fudge
600g white chocolate melts
50g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tin condensed milk (375g)
1 cup dried cranberries
Combine the chocolate, butter, vanilla and condensed milk in a saucepan and stir over a medium heat until thick and smooth. Stir in cranberries (mine were pretty big so I chopped them up first). Pour into a 20cm x 20cm greased or lined tray and refrigerate until hard. Cut into 36 squares or use a cookie/fondant cutter to cut into shapes.
