Icebox Fruitcake

Prep Time – 20 mins. Servings 12


1 (14.4-ounce) box graham crackers

1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained with juice reserved

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup raisins

1 cup firmly packed shredded sweetened coconut

1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


Lightly spray a 9-by-3-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Crush graham crackers using a food processor, or add to a large ziptop bag and crush using a rolling pin. Coarsely chop the cherries. 

In a large bowl, combine crushed graham crackers, cherries, pecans, raisins, coconut, marshmallows and sweetened condensed milk, and mix well. Add reserved cherry juice by the tablespoonful until the mixture comes together but isn’t too soft — usually between 2 and 3 tablespoons.

Turn out into the prepared dish and press flat with your hands. Cover and chill at least 6 hours, then cut into bars. Keep refrigerated.
