Notes

If a stronger cranberry flavor is desired, you can add half a teaspoon of cranberry extract. However, the dried cranberries add quite a strong flavor of cranberry, and therefore, I didn’t add any cranberry flavoring. 
You can use other flavors of frosting such as vanilla, buttercream, white, etc. A white base is necessary for the frosted aspect of the recipe. 
Nestle Toll House white morsels are the best for this recipe. Even the allergy-friendly version of this brand was amazing for this recipe. Some of the other brands didn’t like mixing with the frosting as much, which took a more vigorous stirring process to get the two ingredients to mix. It still worked, it just wasn’t as easy as the Toll House. 
The cheaper dried cranberries didn’t taste as well as the better brands did. They almost gave it an old taste. So, just a heads up on that front. 
It’s best to store this fudge in the fridge or freezer in a sealed container. For the fridge, up to two weeks. For the freezer, up to 3 months.
