How to Make Gingerbread Fudge
Step 1: Line an 8×8″ square pan with a piece of parchment paper, wax paper or aluminum foil. Butter the bottom and sides.
Step 2: Heat the sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until it’s heated through, but do not boil.
Step 3: Add the white chocolate chips to the condensed milk and continue to stir until the chips are completely melted.
Step 4: Add the brown sugar, spices, molasses, and vanilla extract. Continue heating until the sugar dissolves and the spices are well incorporated (about 10 minutes).
Step 5: Pour fudge mixture into your square baking dish.
Step 6: Spread the sprinkles evenly across the top of the gingerbread fudge. Be sure to do this while the fudge is still warm, so the sprinkles will stay in place.
Step 7: Place the fudge in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or until completely set, then cut into 16 small squares. Serve and enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
- For some variations, you can add chopped walnuts or pecans for extra texture and crunch. You can also omit the sprinkles and do a white chocolate drizzle over the top instead for an extra sweet holiday fudge.
- Make sure you use regular sweetened condensed milk and not the fat free kind. Because it’s one of the key ingredients, the fat free version won’t produce the same rich taste and texture.
- For best results, use a rubber spatula to stir your fudge mixture – it will allow you to scrape the bottom and sides of the pan so you can be sure that the fudge doesn’t burn.
How Do I Store Gingerbread Fudge?
Store your leftover fudge in an airtight container at room temperature and it’ll last for 2-3 weeks. You can refrigerate as well, but you risk drying out the fudge.
Can I Freeze it?
Yes – Store it wrapped in plastic wrap in an airtight container or zip-top freezer bag, and you can freeze it for up to three months. When ready to serve, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.
