If you know me, you know that I love everything about the Christmas season.

I especially enjoy time spent in the kitchen, baking up yummy treats.

Growing up, I always spent lots of time in the kitchen helping my grandmother and it’s a tradition I am happy to continue with my son.

There’s no holiday flavor that entices more than gingerbread. The spicy aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and molasses is quite the olfactory come-on.

As a little girl, I can remember baking gingerbread at my grandmother’s house. It’s still one of my favorite scents and instantly makes me think of Christmas.

So of course this quick, sweet Christmas fudge is a treat I’m excited to make.

Of course, traditional gingerbread includes wheat but there are no grains in this recipe.

If you know anyone who must avoid gluten but loves the gingerbread taste, bet they’d be glad to indulge in this luscious confection.

This version is creamy, cute, and quick.

Another thing I love about this simple fudge recipe is that I always have these staples in my cupboard already.

The Christmas season is busy enough already, so having a treat I can make at a moment’s notice for a quick gift or last minute guests is always a win.

You’ll need the following:

  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

How to Make Gingerbread Fudge

Now that you’ve got your ingredients, let’s begin!

In microwave-safe bowl, combine white 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 molasses and then flavor with spices – adjust to your personal preference.

Spoon tablespoon-sized portions into your gingerbread man silicone tray, if using, or fold out into an oiled 9”x9″ 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…if you can stand to wait.

Pop out of the tray – or cut into slices if using the cake pan – and serve or package for gifts.

These look darling in little white take out containers with bows on them. A fun and easy gift idea for friends, family, teachers or coaches.

I’ll be honest: we had to make a double batch the last time we made them because I knew my gang would want some to sample as well and they wouldn’t all make it into the gift boxes.

It’s a good thing I did, because they were gobbled up quickly!
