Gingerbread Chocolate Fudge

I love fudge for the holidays, and I love gingerbread as well. So I figured that I would combine the two into this fun Gingerbread Chocolate Fudge that is just perfect for Christmas! It’s got the warm ginger base and the chocolate topping along with ginger snap cookie crumbles on top! These fudge squares will be the perfect addition to your Christmas Cookie Platter!

I love making fudge as much as the next gal. (I also love eating Fudge!) I’ve made it on the stove top and in the microwave, but I had never made it with PUDDING! So, when I saw Kraft had a recipe for fudge that uses pudding, I knew I had another great use for the Gingerbread Pudding I had.

This fudge turned out smooth and creamy. I loved the gingerbread and the fudge layer, but it was the crushed gingerbread cookies that put this over the top!
When I was making the fudge I could not get all the powered sugar incorporated with a spoon or spatchula. I ended up kneading the fudge like dough or fondant. So, don’t be shy of getting your hands into the batter and getting it mixed in.Make this delicious Gingerbread Chocolate Fudge with the kids this holiday season.

These are going into the “goodie bags” for Christmas treats!
I’m sure my neighbors will approve!
