White Chocolate & Raisin Fudge – Edible Homemade Gifts

Every Christmas, I have a huge list of Foodie Gifts that I intend on making. Time always seems to run away with me but surprisingly enough, this year I actually seem to be getting somewhere. The rest of my present buying is practically non-existent but I have been spending some time in the kitchen.

One of the biggest successes so far has been this recipe for White Chocolate and Raisin Fudge. It has been reliable time after time. I love that it takes hardly any ingredients and that they don’t have a short shelf life either before or after making the fudge. Even better, the fudge is fine to be kept out of the fridge once it is made. I have a real issue with truffles that have to be made at most a couple of days before they are given and then have to be kept in the fridge – Who has time for that in December?

Expect plenty more Edible Gift recipes and ideas over the next few weeks – If you are making any, please feel free to link up below. I am doing an Edible Gift roundup on Thursday 12th December so the link will remain open until then.

I’m also joining this recipe in with Karen from Lavender & Lovage‘s Tea Time Treats challenge and the One Ingredient Challenge over at Howtocookgoodfood & Franglais Kitchen.

White Chocolate & Raisin Fudge

White Chocolate & Raisin Fudge

Ingredients

  • 500g White Chocolate Chips or Chopped into small pieces
  • 45g butter - At room temp, chopped into small chunks
  • 1 tin of condensed milk - Mine was 395g
  • 100g Raisins

Instructions

  1. Add the White chocolate, butter & condensed milk into a microwaveable bowl
  2. Heat on full power for 4 x 30 seconds stirring well each time.
  3. Depending on how strong your microwave is, you might need one more blast of approx 20 seconds.
  4. Add the raisins and mix so evenly distributed across the fudge. If you like quite a few raisins, add more.
  5. I used a 8" square tin but I think a 9" square would probably be better as my fudge was quite tall.
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

    Looks delicious and I agree, perfect for a gift. And you make it in the microwave? That’s so convenient! Thanks for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. I’ve pinned this post and there’s a fresh linky live now – would be great to see you join in again x

    This looks wonderful. I love fudge and try not to make too often in an attempt to be kind of healthy but at least at this time of year, gifting is a good excuse for making lovely treats such as these. Sorry for the delay in writing the roundup post but thanks for linking up to one ingredient and I am doing the post now x
