Bourbon Fruitcake Fudge: White chocolate fudge filled with candied cherries, candied pineapple, and candied oranges that have all been soaked in bourbon.
I avoided fruitcake for a really long time.
Like most things, my first experience with it was not a positive one and so I swore all fruitcakes off.
That was until years ago when my family was sent a Tipsy Cake from Jack Daniels.
First off, wow those are strong.
Second, wow those are good.
It was then I realized that not all fruitcakes are alike and started making my own.
Like with fruitcake the longer the fruit soaks in the booze…the boozier it will be.
If you are wanting a more family friendly fudge you could leave out the bourbon.
But honestly you kind of need it.
I originally was going to add pecans to the fudge.
Only to notice the bowl of pecans off to the side after I already had the fudge setting up in the pan.
My husband says he’s glad there were no nuts.
He says he likes the fudge just is.
Then again, he loves bourbon.
It really doesn’t matter what fruitcake fruit you use.
I buy individual flavors but they make a mix of it that you can buy.
It’s almost always at every grocery store this time of year. Normally over in the bulk nuts in produce.
This is definitely a fun fudge to bring to a holiday party.
