Char’s Gingerbread Fudge

Chocolate fudge meets Christmastime in one decadent bite.

Note: when making the white chocolate layer of this fudge – I suggest using the squares of white baking chocolate (found at bulk food stores or in the baking section of your grocery store). I find the squares give the fudge a much firmer texture than white chocolate chips.

Chocolate Layer

● 10 oz. (300 g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped

● 1 (300 mL) can sweetened condensed milk

● 1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract

● Pinch of salt


1. Line an 8 X 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper on the bottom and up

sides of the pan.

2. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and condensed milk.

3. Stir in vanilla and salt.

4. Spread chocolate layer into prepared pan (mixture will likely be thick (it’s fudge

remember)) and smooth with the back of a spoon.

5. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Gingerbread Layer

● 12 oz. (360 g) white chocolate, roughly chopped

● 1 (300 mL) can sweetened condensed milk

● 2 tbsp (30 mL) molasses

● 2 tsp (10 mL) ground ginger

● 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon

● ¼ tsp (1 mL) each of ground cloves and allspice

● Hefty pinch of ground nutmeg

● ½ tsp (2 mL) pure vanilla extract

● Pinch salt

Garnish: Decorative sprinkles or edible glitter (what I like to use).


1. Using a double boiler, melt white chocolate, condensed milk, and molasses.

2. Once melted, stir in spices, vanilla, and salt until combined.

3. Spread over the chilled chocolate layer and smooth top.

4. Sprinkle garnishes evenly on top and chill for at least 2 hours. (If using edible

glitter, spray fudge once chilled.)

5. When ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator and slice into squares. Makes a lot.

Tip:  For an extra hit of ginger, stir in ⅓ cup (75 mL) very finely diced candied ginger to

the top layer of fudge.

● Edible glitter can be found at most bulk food stores.
