Easy & Quick Condensed Milk Gingerbread Fudge.. White Chocolate & Gingerbread Fudge, with Gingerbread Men.
Line a tin with parchment paper – I use a 7×10″ Brownie tin as it makes a nice depth of fudge with the biscuits in!
Put the chopped chocolate into a heavy based pan, along with all of the condensed milk, vanilla extract, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well.
Once melted, tip in the sifted icing sugar and combine well, it make take a bit of beating.
Pour in 3/4 of the chopped Gingerbread Men and quickly stir through pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture.
Pour on the rest of the chopped Gingerbread Men, add some Christmas Sprinkles and press into the top of the fudge and store in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours to set, or overnight!
Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares (I cut 1″ squares) , return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting if its still a little soft – ENJOY!
This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly!
After a little while the biscuits may go a little softer, but they’re there for the flavour more than anything!
I used a box of pre-made gingerbread men from my bakery isle in my local Asda as they’re super crunchy and you want the biscuits to be crunchy ones, not soft and chewy.
The amount of Gingerbread men is up to you, but I used a majority of the box, but not all as I had eaten a few..!
If you prefer your Fudge a little sweeter and less spicy, you can reduce the Ground Ginger to 2tsps, and the Cinnamon & Nutmeg to 1/4tsp, but I think what I have used is the perfect amount!
Using icing sugar is optional - but without I would use 100g more chocolate!
