This yummy fruitcake is packed with colorful dried fruits and rich Brazil nuts.
Yield: 24 servings.
Variation: Make Petite Fruitcakes when you place a paper or foil baking cup in each of 24 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches. Divide batter evenly among cups (about 1/3 cup each). Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan to wire rack.
Planned-Overs: Enjoy chocolate-coated fruitcake drops! Cut leftover fruitcake into 1-inch cubes. Spear each cube with a toothpick and dip into melted chocolate candy coating (almond bark). Set fruitcake cubes on waxed paper to harden.
