This recipe was given to my mother by an old family friend when I was a young girl. I don't like traditional fruit cake very much, but this one is a great variation with the vanilla wafers. It could be classified somewhere between a cake and a candy.

How to Make Icebox Vanilla Wafer Fruit Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1First, you must save the vanilla wafer box for this recipe. Pulverize the vanilla wafers to a powder consistency in a food processor. Drain the cherries well on a paper towel and then chop. Except for the condensed milk, mix all the other ingredients into the powdered vanilla wafers throughly..
  • 2You will need plastic gloves for the next method since it is a sticky method.
    Pour in the condensed milk and mix until completely mixed and wet. Place mixture back into the vanilla wafer box and beat down evenly into a square.
  • 3Allow the fruit cake to set about 4 days to a week. Tear off the vanilla wafer box and cut into small squares. It is rich, so be conservative. Serve. Leftovers should be refrigerated.
