This tasty chocolate and raspberry fudge is not actually fudge, however, this is what this frozen treat mostly resembles, hence the name ‘cheat’s fudge.’ It contains only a handful of ingredients and no cooking is involved making this really easy to throw together. I have noted the preparation time to be 65 minutes, however, an hour of this is time needed for the recipe to set so it actually only takes five minutes.

The amounts I have noted will make enough for a small batch but if you double everything then it will all fit neatly into an 8 x 8 inch tray. With this you can use any kind of tray or mould you want as it won’t be going in the oven, however, do keep in mind that different containers will result in fudge that varies in thickness.

Once packed into the tray of your choice, just pop this chocolate and raspberry fudge into the freezer for a few hours to set before slicing. I then store this cheats fudge in the freezer and allow each piece a few minutes to thaw out before eating so as not to damage my teeth! If desired, you could transfer this to the fridge once it has set but I personally prefer this to have a firmer texture.

This chocolate and raspberry fudge makes a really nice frozen treat and definitely a ‘healthier’ alternative to most baked goods. If you are a fan of this recipe you may also like some of my other flavours such as this White Chocolate Mocha version or this one with gingerbread.
