Terrific recipe! I made this for Christmas this year and we loved it. The buttermilk adds a nice touch with the pistachios and cranberries. I will definitely make this recipe again. I didn't use a candy thermometer and never do when making fudge. I let it boil 7 minutes and it turned out perfect! Wish I could post a photo!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe that tastes great and looks SO festive!
