Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge

This Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge brings a fabulous flavor of your favorite cookies…in a fudge form.


I’ve got to confess, my friends. I cannot handle fudge. I’m not talking about eating it, though. I’ve mastered my skills pretty well in this field.

However, I cannot make good fudge. Don’t get it wrong. This Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge is amazing, but this is a simplified version made of sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate.

But I’ve always wanted to make an old-fashioned fudge (with butter and cream). Last spring I attempted it few times, and I badly failed all of them. Then I tried it again. Not a complete disaster but not the perfect fudge either.

All those attempts resulted in almost perfect, smooth and silky texture, but I either got something close to hard candy or spread like dulce de leche (Delicious spread, though). The thing is I have a thermometer, and I always made the mixture reach the certain temperature. Nope.

The most upsetting thing is that I easily handled marshmallows and macarons on the very first attempt.

Old-fashioned fudge looks to be rocket science to me.

Honestly, I almost gave up as I didn’t want to make a simplified version. Having said that, I didn’t even think of new attempts for a few months.

But I’m a weak person, and with Christmas season coming, I really wanted to make some seasonal fudge. Yes, I did betray myself! I made this gingerbread fudge of white chocolate and condensed milk, and it wasn’t that bad. Who am I kidding? It turned scrumptious. It’s a little too sweet (I think old-fashioned fudge isn’t that sweet), but I’m not complaining!

The texture of this Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge is spectacular, and the taste is fantastic. The combo of molasses and spices resulted in something epic. I added a good amount of spices to have a very pronounced flavor, so please feel free to adjust it if you prefer more delicate treat.

And this texture, this texture! Do you feel why I’m so excited? And I won’t lie. This Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge isn’t the last fudge you’ll see this December. Sorry (not sorry) for this spoiler alert

Have you ever made good old-fashion fudge? If you have a recipe on your blog, please share.

Do you have any food you cannot handle?

7 Thoughts on “Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge

  1. Yeah I have tried a couple of times to make fudge, and I just couldn´t, but it seems you have just inspired me to try again, I think I can do this recipe! and it sounds oh so delicious :)

  2. I love gingerbread any way I can get it! But I’ve never had it in fudge – what a perfect marriage of deliciousness. And I know your not alone with old-fashioned fudge woes and, really, when you can get beautiful results like this I say, go with what works!

  3. Gingerbread fudge sounds drool-worthy! It’s the best way to eat fudge this winter season! Love the kick from those spices! I have never managed to make fudge the traditional way, it’s too technical..And I still have to try my hand at macarons! So you are totally skilled my friend!

  4. Well done to you Ben on handling marshmallows and macarons in the first attempt. I have to confess I’ve yet to try marshmallows but my attempt of macarons was pretty hopeless and I hang my head in shame for that effort.

    Also, fudge. I’ve made a kind of mint fudge before. It turned out alright but I’ve never got round to publishing it. Maybe next Christmas as I’m already out of recipe slots for this year!

    I’ll happily see lots more fudge recipes on your blog Ben, this looks amazing! It really has put me in the mood for a good piece of home-made fudge now too. :-)

  5. This sound so scrumptious! I’ve actually never made fudge. I usually don’t like regular chocolate fudge, but gingerbread and white chocolate sounds like a perfect combination – I may just have to give this a try! Thanks for the recipe!

  6. I can’t cook rice to save my life, so I feel your pain where fudge is concerned. But there’s nothing wrong with fudge made with sweetened condensed milk. Yes, it may be a little sweeter than old-fashioned but it’s still incredibly delicious! And I find that no one else cares if food is perfect as long as you let them eat as much as they want :). This fudge sounds AMAZING and I certainly wouldn’t think twice about eating the whole batch!

  7. Gingerbread in fudge form? Sign me up for this one! I don’t think I’ve ever had that before, and I am totally on board here. I love all things gingerbread! :-) So I think I’ve got the fudge thing down, but unlike you, I can’t get the macaron thing down to save my life. I haven’t tried making them in a while, though, so maybe I need to try again. Ooo…what about gingerbread macarons? Sounds delicious, right? In the meantime, I’m just going to sit here and think about this gingerbread fudge. Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum. :-)
