Why You’ll Love This Recipe

I feel like you don’t need much convincing here. But if you’re still reading, I’ll tell you again: go make this fudge. It’s so simple!

I call it “guilt-free” for a few reasons: it’s low-sugar and allergen friendly (if you use Enjoy Life chocolate chips, like we do). I use coconut condensed milk, so there’s no dairy in it. And the spices I used, like nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom, are anti-inflammatory and can protect your cells against oxidative stress.

Top it with some pomegranate seeds, which are loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols, adding even more health benefits, and boom: your luxurious chocolate holiday treat can actually do you good. You’re welcome 😉

You’ll also love this recipe because there’s no cooking involved, you can make it super fast, and its beauty makes it an instant hit on any table or at any holiday party. And it’s versatile! You can change up the toppings to your liking (try walnuts, pistachios, marshmallows…you get the idea).

The Ingredients

ingredients for holiday spiced fudge

I think you’ll appreciate this short list of ingredients:

If you know me, you know I love my pomegranate seeds. They’re delicious, and they look like little holiday gems. If you’ve never cut into a pomegranate to get to those gorgeous gems inside, don’t be intimidated; it’s easy to do. I made a video for you showing how to do it to make it simple and clean (watch it here).

I’ve even seen some stores sell the seeds ready to go in the produce aisle, so check there – you might get lucky!

How to Make Spiced Holiday Fudge

Step 1: Grease a loaf pan with ghee spray (you can also use butter or coconut oil). Set aside. Place the chocolate chips and condensed coconut milk in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Remove and stir. If the chips aren’t fully melted, place it back into the microwave in 30 second increments until all chips are melted. Add the spices and salt, then mix with a spoon or spatula until well combined.

Step 2: Quickly pour the chocolate mixture into the greased loaf pan. Top with pomegranate seeds, then cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3: When ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator, add a pinch of coarse sea salt over the top of the fudge, then slice into squares and serve.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does this fudge last in the refrigerator?

The good news is that this fudge will last in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If you’re planning on making this that far ahead, hold off on adding the pomegranate seeds until about a day or two before serving, since they are a fruit. They won’t be fixed into the fudge like they would be if you added from before it was chilled, but it will still look beautiful and stay nice and fresh.

Can I use regular condensed milk for this recipe?

Yes, regular condensed milk will work just as well.

Can I substitute the spices?

Absolutely. If you aren’t a fan of cardamom or nutmeg, you can simply use just cinnamon. You may also choose to substitute the spices I used for simply Pumpkin Pie Spice, which would taste equally as yummy. Just use no more than a teaspoon of fresh spices so they don’t overpower the fudge.

Lastly…
