Raspberry + White Chocolate Fudge

Raspberry White Choc Fudge 1

This is a recipe I’ve been trying to get right for a while.  I’ve made it with raspberry sauce in it; too runny.  I’ve made it with less chocolate; doesn’t set right.  In fact this recipe is the fourth attempt, but you can be assured it works!  And… it is decadently delicious!  Seriously yum :)

2 x 375g white chocolate melts
2 x 395g can condensed milk
4 teaspoons dried raspberry powder (plus extra for dusting, about 1 tablespoon)
2 teaspoons raspberry essence
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
Grease and line a 20 x 20 cm tin.

Melt one lot of chocolate together with one can of condensed milk in a saucepan, stirring constantly to prevent burning.  Once the all the chocolate has melted stir in the vanilla essence.  Pour into the prepared tin.
In another saucepan melt together the second lot of chocolate and condensed milk.  Stir through the dried raspberry powder and the raspberry essence.
Pour on top of the vanilla fudge mixture.
Dust the top of the fudge with extra dried raspberry powder.
Cover with cling film and refrigerate until set, preferably over night.
Once set cut into small squares.

*Dried fruit powders can be found in speciality food stores.  As an alternative, you can use 1 teaspoon of raspberry essence and 1 of red food colouring.  You could also mix through frozen raspberries; defrost and drain off excess liquid before using them. 


  1. I really want to make this but I've never heard of dried raspberry powder. I assume you get it in the baking aisle of the supermarket?

  2. Hi, I'm just wondering about the dried raspberry powder. I'm just wondering where to get it, as I've never heard or seen it before.
    Thanks :)

    1. Hi Gabby,

      There are a couple of companies in New Zealand that I know make fruit powders. One is Nutrafresh - http://www.nutrafresh.co.nz/
      and they are also made by Fresh As - http://fresh-as.com/

      Places like Sabato, Nosh and Farro stock them :)

    2. Hi Melissa,

      Thanks so much, will definitely give these a go, they look super yummy :)

  3. Just curious to know if Raspberry jelly crystals would work or create a weird texture?

    1. To be honest I have no idea.

      I was wondering myself what something like that would work or like nesquick??
      If you try it let me know.

      I want to go experiment now!

  4. Hi, a couple of weeks ago I made this fudge and even though it was very yummy, I found that the bottom white chocolate layer did not set properly. I made it exactly to the recipe. Have you had this problem before? any suggestions why and how I can fix it?
