Fruit Cake Fudge Bar

This is an excellent fudge bar, full of the fruit cake, it tastes like cadbury fruit and nut bar - only better! These bars are made with left over fruit cakes. This time I set aside some of my fruit cake to make this fudge bar and some christmas truffles.
This tastes absolutely delicious! So fudgy and chocolaty! I absolutely loved it. 
You can make this bar with any of these Christmas Fruit Cakes.

Fruit Cake Fudge Bar

1. If using milk chocolate, adjust the icing sugar as the milk chocolate is already sweet. 
2. I forgot to add the sugar but my fruit cake was sweet and with the condensed milk and dark chocolate, we did not miss the sugar! If you prefer a sweeter version, or if your fruit cake is not sweet enough, add the sugar.
3. If adding sugar, please make sure the sugar gets completely dissolved.

Until next time,

  9. Nice and tempting fudge. I missed the events on your blog, may be next time, please inform me.

  10. That's beautiful! Does it need to be refrigerated once it's done? I'm making it for my cousins in goa, was wondering if it can survive the 12 hour bus journey ?

    1. For Indian weather, it should be refrigerated. If travelling, refrigerate as soon as you reach your destination, it should be fine. You can try these christmas truffles instead of these bars, these will hold well http://www.fullscoops.net/2015/01/christmas-cake-truffles.html
