When you think of Christmassy scents, what are the first things that come to mind? For me it is pine needles, peppermint and gingerbread!!

I’m a big fan of gingerbread all year round and really not sure why most people tend to eat it only during the holidays. Another Christmas classic is fudge!

So, by combining that gingerbread flavor with fudge we have this Gingerbread Fudge Recipe, which is destined to become the next Christmas classic!

This recipe can bemade in a standard 9″x9″ cake pan, but to make it really special, I like the presentation factor of forming it into gingerbread man shapes!

It’s easy to do with a gingerbread silicone mold. Just pour the fudge mixture into the mold and let it cool into cute little gingerbread men!

Personally, some of my favorite Christmas gifts are the kind I can eat!! As long as its something delicious (like this fudge is), it makes me happy to know that someone took the time to put their own effort into making me a gift.

Food gifts are even more fun when they are presented in a special way. While I am happy to take yummy treats that are just on a plain paper plate or packed in an old cool-whip container, it’s a lot more fun when they are bundled in pretty packaging!

I did a little bit of browsing and found all of the fun food containers listed above.

This gingerbread fudge makes a great addition to any plate of holiday cookies and treats, but it is also perfect for gift giving. To make a pretty present, I like to pack treats into a brightly colored treat box or reusable tin like the ones above.

While any treat is fun to receive as a gift, it’s even better when the presentation shows the giver really cares about making the total package pretty.
