  • You can leave it in the pantry until you finally say one day, "I'll never make this!" and pitch it. Or better yet, donate it to your local food pantry. Other than that I have no idea. I'm just being a fruitcake! :) Good luck!

  • do you mean the candied fruits? or a boxed mix?

    If it is the fruits, you can add them to spiced oatmeal cookies, and its pretty darn tasty! I have a recipe if you want it.

  • Ohhh - melt some white almond bark (or candy melts or whatever) and mix the fruits in, and press into a cake pan or bread pan lined with plastic or foil. Once it's set, use the lining to lift it out, and slice using a serrated knife. It's a Christmas candy called "church windows" or something like that, it's supposed to resemble stained glass windows.
