With its traditionally Christmas-like flavours, this fudge makes a great gift for anyone with a sweet tooth. “Inspired by the traditional spiced cookie from Belgium and Netherlands, the velvety spread used in this recipe contains a plentiful amount of crushed cookies. Flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger make a great base for homemade candy,” says Chef Tom Filippou, executive chef President's Choice. “Microwave fudge is a gift from the sugar gods - no boiling sugar, candy thermometers, and sore arms from stirring the candy until it cools.”
