Love it or hate it, fruitcake is a holiday fixture. It's a colorful, festive dessert that people love to give as gifts because it's filled with all the surprise and sweetness of the holiday season. Every bite contains a little bit of something new, from pistachios and hazelnuts to sweet dried and candied fruits of all sorts! These fruitcake recipes are so delicious, even the staunchest of anti-fruitcake Grinches will enjoy them with smiles and glee.
