I call this Fruitcake Fudge.  But it is also known as Jeweled Fudge.  Whatever you call it, this Christmas dessert will be a new family favorite!

Okay.  Okay.  I love fruitcake!

Not the weird store bought brick.  But homemade fruitcake is so wonderful.  My grandmother used to make The Best fruitcake every Christmas.  Unfortunately, she must have memorized her amazing fruitcake recipe.

I know I’ll never be able to recreate that rum soaked cake of hers.  So I just make other types of desserts with a fruitcake twist, like this Fruitcake White Chocolate Fudge Recipe.

Every time I create a fruitcake inspired recipe I think of my sweet German grandmother . . . and wish I had her darn recipe!!!

    Hi
    I wanted to know how long can we keep it. And how. And i dont get rum extract here in kerala India. So what can i use instead of that. Thanks….

      Fudge is usually good kept in an sealed container for about a week. After that it starts to get a bit stale and dry. As far as the extract, you can use whatever flavor you prefer or have access to. Vanilla or almond extract would work too 🙂
