Icebox Fruitcake

Fruitcake. Yay or nay?

Now, before you go turning up your nose at the thought of fruitcake, take a look at a very old recipe. It's my grandmother's no-bake fruitcake. It's a Christmas favorite around my house and it's delicious.


  • One box (approx. 12 oz.) of vanilla wafers
  • One pound of candied cherries (red and/or green)
  • One can (approx. 14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • One cup raisins
  • One cup coconut
  • One cup pecans
  1. Finely crush vanilla wafers. A food processor works great!
  2. In a large bowl, add the vanilla wafers, sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Hand mix until wafers are moistened.
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Mix well by hand.
  6. Press mixture into a buttered tube pan.
  7. Cover
  8. Refrigerate overnight, until firm.
Keep it refrigerated, as it will spoil. This isn't your traditional fruitcake. It's so, so much better!
