I have a friend that loves the flavour of Gingerbread, we go out for a coffee at Christmas Time and she will immediately pick one with Gingerbread flavours so when I was making a gift for her this Christmas I decided to cook up some Gingerbread Fudge. Whilst taste testing I found the flavour a little strong so instead of a straight Gingerbread I used a simple White Chocolate Fudge Recipe and topped it off with this to create a delicious two-tone Christmas Fudge that my Gingerbread Man Friend will love. So now she’s tested it and approves here it is our Christmas Gingerbread and White Chocolate Topped Fudge Recipe perfect for Edible Christmas Gifts.
Gingerbread and Vanilla Topped Fudge
I had a fear of making fudge many years ago – I’d seen my grandmother struggle with the candy thermometer trying to get the temperature right so that it all combines and then a friend shared with me her Slow Cooker Fudge Recipe and I was hooked.
It’s now become my go-to recipe for Edible Christmas Gifts and you will find I have a stock of condensed milk cans in my store cupboard as well as chocolate chips just in case I need to make some more.
Making the fudge in the slow cooker is so simple – but don’t make the mistake I did where I hadn’t washed out after making a Chicken Curry and ended up with Chocolate Fudge with a curry flavouring!!!
