I Know, I Know "yuck I don't really care for fruitcake"..but these are bite size and do taste good and are very simple...takes a bit of planning...but not much....:o)

Makes 3 dozen....

1/4 lb. candied cherries (quartered)

3 candied pineapple slices, chopped

2 1/4 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

1/2 cup flour

1 can condensed milk

3 tbls. butter melted

1 teas. vanilla extract

1 teas. orange extract

Grand Marnier for soaking baked cakes ( a must )

Directions........

Grease tiny muffin tins very well ( I buy the aluminum ones, throw aways). Preheat the oven to 300 F.. Place pan of boiling water in oven on bottom rack, when baking. Chop candied fruits and toss with the flour. Mix the rest of the ingrd. and fill the muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake 30 - 35 minutes. Remove from tins when done and put on a rack to cool. (in the bought ones I leave them in). Spoon Grand Marnier over each fruitcake (repeat each day for three days). Store in airtight container.
