This gingerbread fudge is a really easy way to whip up a dessert that feels festive but requires minimal effort. You only need to look at the ingredients to realise that isn’t traditional fudge but, in terms of consistency and appearance, it seemed the best way to describe it! It is a much ‘healthier’ alternative to traditional fudges but so delicious!

This is a no bake dessert and it is best to keep it in the freezer and just allow it a few minutes to thaw out before eating. I press this into an 8″ x 8″ tray but it doesn’t quite reach the corners so using something smaller would actually be ideal if possible!

I like to drizzle this gingerbread fudge with dark chocolate as I love the combination of ginger and chocolate together but this step is completely optional. I have noted the ‘prep time’ to be 70 minutes, this may seem excessive for a no bake dessert but please keep in mind this includes the time needed to set.

If you like this fudge you may also like my Chocolate Chip version and my Double Chocolate & Raspberry version. Alternatively, if you are looking for other festive versions you may like my Mince Pie Freezer Fudge which you can find here.
