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

  1. First, 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..
  2. You 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.
  3. Allow 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.
