WATCH: How To Make Delicious Fruit Cake Bars

Brownies + fruitcake = new Christmas dessert favorite

What do you do when you don't like fruitcake? Usually, many people give it to people they know who love fruitcake. Besides, everyone knows that butterscotch brownies are the better gift.... or is it? 

We think we just found a way to satisfy everyone who adores fruitcake and those who prefer brownies during the Christmas season. This uses a light brownie-like batter that's similar to a butterscotch brownie recipe but has the mix-ins of a fruitcake.

The classic fruitcake has glazed fruits such as cherries, pineapple, and ginger. In this recipe, raisins or dried grapes are added to give the bars another fruity flavor. It's not quite a food for the gods recipe; it's a recipe that's on a level that's on its own. Plus, these light fruit bars become even more irresistible with a piped layer of cream cheese frosting on top. How can you say "no" to that? 

This is the brownie and fruitcake mashup that you'll actually want to eat! This light fruit cake bar recipe is going to be the fruitcake that you'll want to gift to someone so they'll love it as much as you do. Here's the recipe:
