Festive Easy Fudge

The semi sweet chocolate contrasts well with the sweetness from the candied orange and ginger, the crunch of the nuts contrast well with the chew of those two items and the cranberries.
The bright flavour of the orange and heat of the ginger pops through in various proportions, with every bite of fudge tasting different from the last.
