This simple holiday Gingerbread Fudge is made in the microwave and is done and in the pan in less than 10 minutes.

IMG_0363So yesterday was Thanksgiving. *I’ll make this fast*

I don’t know about you, but I’m stuffed. Except there’s still magically enough room in my stomach for dessert.

Umm, duh! ALWAYS.

I made this fudge last week and #cantstopwontstop thinking about it. Ever since I made these Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting I’ve been dreaming about the cookie dough. Because don’t all regular people dream about eating bowls full of cookie dough?

Don’t answer that.

Anyways, it got me thinking about  how I could incorporate more cookie dough into my daily diet when a few minutes later, this blessed fudge idea entered my frontal lobe of my food loving brain and I haven’t looked back since.

This fudge is made in the microwave and is done and in the pan in less than 10 minutes. It tastes like my favorite gingerbread cookie dough, except harder because I refrigerate it and chewier because it’s fudge. Overall, it’s an amazing and simple holiday treat to add to your cookie trays you give to the neighbors {or hoard for yourself}. No judgement.

Here’s how you make it:  IMG_0271Start by melting some white chocolate and molasses into  some sweetened condensed milk.IMG_0274I just popped mine into the microwave and melted it together, stirring every 30 seconds.IMG_0276Now you can stir in all the dry ingredients: flour powdered sugar and spices.
IMG_0278This mixture will be pretty thick! Make sure you whip it good so it’s nice and smooth.IMG_0281Pour it into a greased 8×8 glass dish and let it harden. You can either keep it on the counter to harden for a few hours OR throw it into the fridge and eat it sooner! Holla! That’s obviously what I did.IMG_0400Cut it into some squares and dig in!IMG_0386Chewy like cookie dough, but sweet like fudge. You MUST give this a whirl this holiday season. You will DIE.

    Hi Lauren! What a lovely blog! Fudge is not too common in Italy, so I’m not sure about storing it. Can it be frozen? Can it be kept out of the fridge in the winter? For how long? Thank you, I’ll be visiting your blog very often 🙂

    Hey Lauren! I was a good friend of your brother’s in high school, and just checked out your site. I wanted to comment that this recipe works equally well gluten-free with brown rice flour. This fudge is delicious, easy, and really unique!! I’m going to pin more of your recipes to try out later this afternoon…. 🙂

    I was thoroughly disappointed with this recipe 🙁 I was SO EXCITED to try it but it tasted like raw starch from the uncooked flour. I get that it’s supposed to be cookie dough flavoured but I actually spit it out after making it and patiently waiting for to set. So did my husband, who will eat just about anything.

    Not a hit in our house.

    Reckon I had the same problem as you Britt- I think cause I used dry mollasses, like the sugar, as opposed to the liquid type =/ Put a lot of black treacle in and praying for the best 😉

  9. Britt

    Hi! When I made mine and put the dry ingredients in, it was so dry and not liquidy like your picture looks! I had to knead it like dough with my hands, and then press it into the pan (it was too dry to pour). I used all the same measurements…. I’m worried it won’t come out for my party! Any ideas?

    1. Karen

      Britt…I had the same problem..had to have my husband stir it, and still didn’t get all the dry mixture incorporated….you can still see the flour/powdered sugar on the top….it’s also very dry, but does taste good….I wonder if reducing the amount of flour will help?? I’m wondering what Lauren has to say about it….

    I made the gingerbread bars 2 weeks ago and they were a hit, so right now, I’m gonna hit the kitchen and make this fudge! I’m already hungry!

    1. Jessie

      It’s been in the fridge for 4 hours now and still not hard. I think it’s the condensed milk. How big was the can you’ve used?

      1. Jessie

        Used the same size can and yes: I’ve added the 2 cups of flour.
        When after 3 hours it wasn’t hard yet, I made some popcorn and stirred it through the popcorn. Different but definitely not bad 😀

  14. Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    You had me at “chewy like cookie dough.” Yes, in fact I DO regularly think about how to incorporate more cookie dough into my daily diet. This sounds like the perfect solution!

  15. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    Omg. I definitely need more cookie dough in my daily diet hahaha and this looks like the perfect way to do it! So gorgeous! I love that it makes perfect fudge without the need for a candy thermometer or anything too difficult. Pinning and sharing! 🙂
