Spiced Christmas Fruitcake Fudge is a fun way to incorporate a classic dish for the holidays!  White chocolate fudge is mixed with fruitcake mix, nuts, and spices for a simple and easy Christmas dessert.

Fruitcake is a rather polarizing food.  It seems that either you love it or can’t stand it!  This Spiced Christmas Fruitcake Fudge uses the same flavors and ideas of a fruitcake in a simple white chocolate fudge.  If you are not a fan of the traditional fruitcake, you might like this!  The white chocolate lends sweetness, and without the cake and some of the extra flavors and moisture, this fudge is a great middle ground.  Plus, it is SO pretty!  Just look at all of those colors 🙂 I use this fruitcake mix which has great reviews.

A lot of fudge, especially white chocolate fudge, tends to have marshmallow fluff.  This one does NOT which makes it vegetarian, but a little more dense than normal.  

I love making fudge for the holidays and cookie swaps because (1) they are SO fast and (2) they are no-bake!  Some fudge requires heating sugars on the stove and trying to reach specific temperatures, but I find microwave fudge is just as delicious and MUCH simpler.  Just heat ingredients for a short time in the microwave and you are ready.  Microwave fudge is so incredibly simple and easy!  Get more of our fudge recipes here!

It only takes a few minutes to make the fudge before you let it set to harden!  Many fudges require cooking sugars over a stove to certain temperatures, and while the end product is amazing, I love a quick and simple fudge like this one!  All made in the microwave.  Unfortunately white chocolate is notorious for being difficult to melt (so frustrating!).  A little trick I learned is that if chocolates in general seize, you can add a little oil and keep stirring, and it almost always goes back to a melted state.  So weird, I know, but it works.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Put the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl.
  • Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each heating, until the chocolate is melted.
  • Immediately add the rest of the ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the lined baking dish.
  • Finish by sprinkling with sparkling sugar sprinkles, more cinnamon, walnuts, and/or more orange zest if desired.
  • Let the fudge harden before cutting.

Notes

Trouble shooting: White chocolate can be difficult to melt properly.  If it starts to seize or get stiff and grainy after melting, add just a little oil and stir until the consistency comes back.
