Raspberry Swirled Fudge

This is my basic white chocolate fudge recipe. Once you know how to make vanilla fudge, you can change up the flavors easily!

It’s hard to imagine any two flavors that are more perfect together than white chocolate and raspberry so I opted to add a little swirl of raspberry jam to this classic fudge. The creaminess of the chocolate with the bright and juicy raspberries is quite simply a match made in dessert heaven.

If the taste of this fudge weren’t enough to make you swoon, let’s talk about how pretty it looks. The dark pink swirls of raspberry contrasting with the plain white fudge make this an eye catching treat perfect for the holidays or Valentine’s Day!

Ingredient Notes

  • White chocolate morsels – White chocolate baking chips melt quickly and smoothly in this fudge. You can also substitute a white chocolate baking bar chopped into small pieces.
  • Marshmallow cream – This cream (or “fluff”) helps give the fudge its smooth silky texture.
  • Raspberry Jam – Any brand of jam or preserves made with real raspberries works in this fudge recipe.

Step by Step Instructions

This is my favorite method for making all kinds of different flavors of fudge–it’s so easy and nearly fail-proof.

STEP 1. Butter and sugar

Heat the butter, sugar and heavy cream in a sauce pan on the stove. Once it starts boiling, let it boil for 4 minutes while you stir constantly.

STEP 2. Add white chocolate

Pour the hot butter mixture over a mixing bowl filled with white chocolate, marshmallow cream and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixture until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

STEP 3. Swirl and Set

Transfer the fudge to a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Top the fudge with the raspberry jam and use the flat side of a butter knife to swirl.

Let the fudge set for 3 hours until firm, then cut into squares and serve.

Tips and Tricks

  • Alternate method for swirling: You can also make the raspberry swirls by reserving 1 cup of the white chocolate fudge mixture and pouring the rest into the baking pan. To the reserve mixture, add the raspberry preserves and stir to combine. Pour this over the other fudge in the pan and let set.
  • Keeping fudge fresh: If you won’t be eating the fudge right away, store it in block form. Then, cut and serve the fudge as needed whenever you want a piece! This helps keep the fudge from getting dry and crumbly over time.

Does this fudge need to be refrigerated?

No, this fudge can be set and stored at room temperature. No refrigeration required.

What’s the best way to store fudge?

Transfer fudge to an airtight container. It’ll stay good for up to 2 weeks!

Can I substitute a different kind of jam instead of using raspberry?

Sure, feel free to mix up the jam based on what appeals to you. Cherry and strawberry preserves would be delicious choices (although keep in mind they are less tart than raspberry so the flavor profile will be different).

Do I need a candy thermometer to make this fudge recipe?

Nope! Instead of a candy thermometer, just set a timer for 4 minutes once the butter and cream start to boil. Keep stirring it well as it boils and the consistency of the finished fudge will come out perfect!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I have never had good luck with fudge. 3 years ago, my work had a fudge contest, and I wanted to enter. I found this recipe, tried it, and won! The next 2 years, I win again making a small change..,as much as I love raspberry, I used huckleberry jam for something even more unexpected (and such a beautiful purple color!) It truly is the best fudge.

  2. I made it and it didn’t set up. Does this need to be cooked to a soft ball and then beaten like classic fudhe?

    1. I have a question about the preserves/jam. if I was to take fresh or frozen raspberries & slightly puréed them in the food processor instead of using store bought preserves/jam, would that cause any problems with the fudge setting as long as there wasn’t large chunks of raspberries in the purée ?

  3. I tried to make this and was not happy with the end result. The marshmallow cream made the fudge too soft… I would recommend mixing the raspberry jam with 1 cup or more maybe up to half of the fudge… mine was too soft, and didn’t set, especially in the middle where there seemed to be the most jam. I ended up hand rolling the semi set fudge into small truffles freezing then and dipping them in chocolate… 

  4. I made this last night to put in my Christmas tins for friends and family. It is delicious and so pretty. I should have mixed in the jam better so it was messy. I think when I make this again I will try your 2nd option of mixing in the raspberry jam.  I love finding different flavor combos. I think I will try blackberry jam too. I like how the tanginess offsets the sweetness. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’m not sure, as I haven’t tried that. The cream has a higher fat content, so I’m not positive it would work. But if you try it, report back and let me know how it turns out!

  5. This was delicious but think something went wrong and I followed the recipe to a T. I set in fridge all night and waited till morning to cut. It wasn’t very hard and when i took it to work it got softer and softer throughout the day. So we had to use a spoon to eat it.

    1. I think the syrup might be too liquidy and cause the chocolate to seize. But, you can always give it a try and let me know!!

  6. I read your article and then I got to thinking about it and I thank you for sharing your article made me gain knowledge, research, and I like it.

  7. I just made this fudge and it was AMAZING!!! I followed your directions exactly and it turned out perfectly and just as beautiful as the picture! I was so happy since most of the time I can’t get my fudge to set properly. The only down fall to this recipe is that I am going to get FAT because I don’t want to share!! 🙂
