I am not a fruitcake fan.. there is one fruitcake I like from Texas..that is out of this world.. but it is a bit pricey! I get it for my mom every year for Christmas..but I wanted to create my own..
After looking through tons of recipes.. I combined a few to make this one..

Recipe
1 can of condensed Milk ( not canned milk)
1 7 oz. jar of marshmallow cream

4 Cups Pecans
1 8 oz package chopped dates
1 8 oz jar of cherries
1 8 oz cranraisins
1 Cup of shredded coconut
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 box of good quality graham crackers crushed

In saucepan heat milk and marshmallow cream..just until the marshmallow cream is mixed well into the milk..do not over cook…take off burner
add remainder of ingredients mixing well. you will have to use your hands at some point..if more liquid is need , use a little bit of the cherry juice..being careful not to use too much juice.

Now you can choose how you want to shape these.. I made 4 mini loaves, one small springform pan, and 24 mini fruitcakes ( from my mini muffin pan).. Be creative…plave into greased pans..cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 24 hours!

People will not turn their nose up at these! They will be asking for more! Makes a great neighbor gift, teacher gift…and a wonderful addition to your cookie plate for the holidays~! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
