A delicious dark chocolate fudge filled with a luxuriously, creamy raspberry fondant.
Someone’s been making fudge again. That’d be me. Chocolate Fudge. With Raspberry Cream. Yum!
I really love making fudge. Simple fudge, I mean. This is not real chocolate fudge, I know, so no hate mail please. This is the easy chocolate fudge you make with condensed milk, butter, sugar and chocolate and the most difficult part of the whole recipe is standing and stirring it for 10 minutes 🙂 When I master REAL fudge, you will be the first to know. I promise.
That all being said, this chocolate fudge is almost as good as the real thing. Pretty dang close to the chocolate fudge I have purchased from actual fudge-people in the fudge-know.
The inspiration for this fudge came from some freeze-dried raspberries I had bought. They were really yummy but they are not the most budget friendly of ingredients. I realised from this that the freeze-dried raspberries were always just going to be used to top things with. They work great crumbled up as a topping on cakes, cupcakes, ice cream and, as it turns out, chocolate fudge.
But crumbled up raspberries on top of chocolate fudge wasn’t enough. So I decided to make some Raspberry Cream to go in between two layers of fudge. The raspberry cream is the type of filling that you get in filled chocolates (incidentally filled chocolates are yet another recipe swirling through my food filled brain, just itching to reach the dizzying heights of the smaller percentage that actually make it out of my brain and into my kitchen – phew! – yep that’s what it’s like in there).
Anyway, raspberry cream. Yum. Chocolate fudge. Yum. You really have to try this recipe. Kids will love it, adults do love it (I know because I have a wonderful test audience in my family and friends). And I found that this wasn’t as super sweet as I thought it would be. It’s really quite moreish.
Now foodie friends, go forth and stir 🙂
