Fruit and Nut Fudge Recipe
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!!!
