Chocolate Pretzel Fudge with Walnuts and Cranberries has an irresistibly salty and sweet personality: the rich chocolate is perfectly balanced by the crunchy saltiness of pretzels.
Every holiday cookie spread needs fudge, right? There are many flavor combinations you can play around with when making fudge, and I found the use of a salty element especially fun and delicious. Just imagine how irresistibly salty and sweet these chocolate pretzel fudge treats are: The rich sweetness of chocolate is perfectly balanced by the crunchy and saltiness of pretzels.
You can use whatever’s your favorite miniature pretzel shape and you can mix them them straight into the batter. I decided to play around with the straight variety and place them in a somewhat geometrical pattern over the top, as a contrast with the playful nature of the confection. For variation, you can use trail mix instead of walnuts and cranberries, or your favorite nut/dried fruit combination.
