Gingerbread Fudge Blondies
The holidays are quickly approaching, and no holiday dessert table is complete without gingerbread! However, instead of spending hours and hours going through the process of making, rolling, cutting, baking and decorating gingerbread men —I made these delectable fudge bars instead!
These Gingerbread Fudge Blondies are an easy and delicious alternative to the traditional cookie. The gingerbread blondie is spiced to perfection and the gingerbread fudge topping is thick, chewy and melts in your mouth with every bite!
The gingerbread blondies taste just like gingerbread cookies! They’re chewy, dense and spiced with the perfect amount of the classic gingerbread spices — ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg! I also added some unsulphured molasses to the batter to enhance the gingerbread flavour!
One of the best things about these blondies is how easy they are to make! Simply melt some butter in a heat safe mixing bowl over simmering water, whisk in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and molasses. Mix the dry ingredients together, then add to the batter, mix thoroughly, spread into pan and bake. That’s all! No mixer required, just a whisk and a bowl.
And can I just say, the smell of these blondies baking in the oven is pure holiday heaven! It’ll make your whole house smell like Christmas!
On top of the blondies is a thick, chewy, creamy and rich gingerbread fudge! This fudge is packed with flavour and tastes just like gingerbread cookie dough — only sweeter and creamier. It isn’t too chewy to where you have to chew for about 10 minutes before you’re able to swallow. The fudge just melts in your mouth with every bite!
Just like the blondies, this fudge is super simple to make. It’s made with sweetened condensed milk, so no candy thermometer is needed! All you need to do is heat the sweetened milk, molasses, vanilla and white chocolate chips together until everything is melted and smooth. Then stir in the gingerbread spices, spread the fudge over the blondies and let it set! Completely fuss-free!
Fun Christmas Design!
To dress up these fudge bars, I piped on a simple design (using royal icing, because GINGERBREAD!). And to up the festivities, I sprinkled on some Christmas sprinkles for a pop of colour.
I really wanted to add some mini gingerbread candies on top, but they were sold out everywhere! If you can find any gingerbread candies or sprinkles in your area I highly recommend topping these bars with them!
I’ve mentioned this before in my Oreo Fudge Brownies recipe, but I cut the bars pretty big for photography purposes. Since this is a combination of blondies and fudge, you can already guess that they’re really sweet. I recommend cutting them into smaller bars so it’s not too overwhelming.
Spice up your holidays with these sweet and spicy gingerbread fudge bars. Serve them at your Holiday party or package them up and give them away as a delicious, edible Christmas gift!
