I absolutely love this idea of fruitcake fudge! It's so pretty with the fruit pieces spread throughout. It's made with the same fruit you would use in a fruitcake. You could even add nuts if you desire. So festive and fun to serve and share. It's a candy I will be adding to my list of favorites to make each December.
