When you think of Christmassy scents, what are the first things that come to mind? For me it is pine needles, peppermint and gingerbread!!
I'm a big fan of gingerbread all year round and really not sure why most people tend to eat it only during the holidays. Another Christmas classic is fudge! So, by combining that gingerbread flavor with fudge we have this Gingerbread Fudge Recipe, which is destined to become the next Christmas classic!
And if you are a fudge lover in general, be sure to also check out our egg nog fudge recipe! If one kind of holiday fudge is good, then two kinds is even better!
This recipe can be made in a standard 9″x9″ cake pan, but to make it really special, I like the presentation factor of forming it into gingerbread man shapes! It's easy to do with a gingerbread silicone mold. Just pour the fudge mixture into the mold and let it cool into cute little gingerbread men!
This gingerbread fudge makes a great addition to any plate of holiday cookies and treats, but it is also perfect for gift giving. To make a pretty present, I like to pack treats into a brightly colored treat box or reusable tin like the ones above. While any treat is fun to receive as a gift, it's even better when the presentation shows the giver really cares about making the total package pretty.
This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, but if you don't have it on hand you can use this recipe to make your own homemade sweetened condensed milk.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk.
Heat for 25 seconds, stir well, and reheat for another 25 seconds as needed until you get a smooth, consistent texture.
Stir in the molasses and then flavor with the spices – adjust to your personal preference.
Spoon 1 Tablespoon-sized portions into your gingerbread silicone mold, if using, or fold out into a greased 9×9″ cake pan.
Press the fudge down with wet, clean hands to ensure it sets evenly, and then place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
Pop out of the tray – or cut into slices if using the cake pan – and serve or package for gifts.
