Gingerbread Cookie Dough Fudge

I'm a traditionalist when it comes to holiday baking, but I always manage to squeeze in a few new recipes each year. This fudge from Lauren's Latest caught my eye, and I had all the ingredients on hand.

This is incredibly easy to make, requires no special equipment and is a tasty non-traditional fudge. It's less decadent than it's traditional fudge counterpart, so you can enjoy more.

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Fudge
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 oz. white chocolate
2 Tbsp. molasses
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cloves

In a large bowl, place sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate and molasses. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, to melt chocolate into milk. Measure and pour dry ingredients into warm molasses mixture. Stir until smooth and incorporated. Pour into parchment-lined 8x8 baking dish. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set. Cut into squares and serve.
