Fruitcake Fudge or Jeweled Fudge
Fruitcake Fudge or Jeweled Fudge
This delicious and easy fudge goes by several different names, Fruitcake Fudge or Jeweled Fudge, even White Christmas Fudge. I prefer to call it fruitcake fudge because it’s made with Extra Fancy Fruitcake Mix by Paradise Fruit Co. I few weeks ago, Paradise Fruit Company sent me a great selection of their fantastic dried fruits and asked me if I’d be willing to create recipes using their product. Of course I said yes!
Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl
The first recipe I made with Paradise Fruit was for Tropical Smoothie Bowl. A delicious and refreshing smoothie bowl, topped with all kinds of “good for you” ingredients and of course the star of the fruit smoothie bowl, Tropical Fruit Blend. I had never heard of a Fruit Smoothie bowl before even though they’ve been around for some time. I’m not sure why I’ve never heard of smoothie bowls before but I’m so glad I did! They’re fantastic.
Fudge in the Summer?
You might be thinking to yourself…fudge in the summertime?? Why? Well, why the heck not! We eat candy bars in the summertime, so why not fudge…am I right or am I wrong…as my grandma would say! I can’t tell you how many times I heard that statement when my grandma was still alive. Every question she would ask you, ended in that same statement..example: “It’s really cold out today…am I right or am I wrong?” I would answer the same way, “Your right grandma.”
This recipe for Fruitcake Fudge is a super easy recipe that I’ve made many times before. There is a very good explanation for that, this recipe turns out every single time. Not once have I ever made this recipe and it did not turn out. I found the recipe a few years ago on the back of a bag of Nestle Premier White Morsels and have making it ever since. I tweak the original recipe as needed, to accommodate for the addition of different ingredients but the basic recipe remains the same.

Can you use white chocolate chips for this recipe?
This recipe is a complete fail in my book. I followed the directions exactly. Shame on me. With all of my years of cooking experience I should have been wary of a candy recipe that does not use a candy thermometer but rather states to bring to a rolling boil and then boil for an additional 4 1/2 to 5 minutes. I suspect the mixture became too hot but who knows what the goal temperature might be? When I added the marshmallows and Nestle premiere white baking chips the mixture seized up into a crumbly mess. There was no beautiful white fudge to be seen and now I have wasted a rather expensive set of ingredients that could have been better used for anything else.
I am so sorry to hear you had difficulty with this recipe. I’ve made Nestle Famous Fudge Recipe for years and never had trouble with it. The recipe does state to “bring to a rolling boil over MEDIUM heat, while stirring constantly, for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the marshmallows etc. I am guessing that since you have made candy before using a thermometer that you might have brought the mixture to a hard crack stage, which would definitely cause the mixture to become a real mess. I’m sorry that you had to spend money on products only to end up with nothing. Lynn
