We love making platters of cupcakes, cookies and fudge to hand out to all our favorite people this time of year. It’s such a great way to show our appreciation for all that they do and a wonderful way to spread some holiday cheer. Gingerbread Fudge is a new favorite of ours to share because it’s so creamy and tastes like gingerbread cookie dough. The warm spices throughout each piece including ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. So festive and EASY to make.

Gingerbread Fudge is an easy fudge recipe, like my Peanut Butter Fudge and doesn’t even require a candy thermometer. The hardest part is trying to have patience while it sets. I know it’s tempting to want to put it in the freezer to have it set faster but I don’t recommend it because it affects the texture of the fudge. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait!

Microwave vs. Stovetop

The recipe calls for melting the ingredients in a saucepan on your stovetop and while some fudge recipes require a candy thermometer and a stovetop this one actually doesn’t! Since we’re working with sweetened condensed milk instead of just sugar and heavy cream, this removes the difficult steps people often struggle with while making fudge.

Microwave directions:

  • Add the ingredients in a large microwave safe bowl.
  • Add the same ingredients you’d put into the saucepan to the bowl and microwave on half power until they’re hot and completely melted.
  • Stir until smooth, then pour into baking pan.

  • Toppings: Have fun decorating the top with red and green sprinkles or mini marshmallows.
  • Gluten-Free: This recipe is naturally gluten-free though check the label on the white chocolate because there are a few brands that do contain gluten.
  • Vegan: Unfortunately, white chocolate isn’t vegan but there are plenty of non-dairy white chocolate substitutes to use instead. Also, swap out the condensed milk for coconut condensed milk and make sure to use vegan butter for this recipe to be vegan.



  • Serve: I recommend enjoying Gingerbread Fudge immediately and not leaving it out for more than 2 hours.
  • Store: Place the Gingerbread Fudge in an airtight container with parchment paper between each layer to keep them from sticking together. They can be kept either on the counter for up to 1 week or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  • Freeze: I recommend flash freezing the fudge on a baking sheet for an hour and then double wrap them in plastic wrap before placing them into a freezer-safe storage bag. They’ll be good for up to 3 months.
