Rum and Raisin Fudge

White Chocolate Rum and Raisin Fudge

Quick and easy to put together, this white chocolate rum and raisin fudge is EVERYTHING it promises and more! 🙂

So I recently met some new neighbours. They’ve lived here a few years longer than us, but our paths had never crossed until now. You know how there are times you feel things happen for a reason? This was one of them.

When we finally met and got chatting, there was an instant connection between us ladies. You know when you meet someone who gets you, a friend for life. My lovely new neighbour (to me anyways!) and I couldn’t be more different. And yet here we were forging the most unexpected but wonderful friendship. We just… well, clicked!

So when she mentioned her husband was a rum and raisin fan, I naturally put my thinking cap on. As working mama, whilst homeschooling too, whatever I made had to be easy (for my sanity!). But not compromise on taste. And so my rum and raisin fudge came into being.

Having some experience of fudge making, from cappuccino fudge to gingerbread fudge and of course my cookies and cream fudge, I had an idea of what to do.

So I was so pleased that my neighbour (and her lovely other half!) were pleased as punch to receive a package of this fudge. And I even had some extra to give out to a few other very happy neighbours too!

Plus, for any parents out there, don’t forget you can tell your children this is a “grown up” fudge because it contains alcohol! (Never mind that my son would eat the lot if I let him!)

Simple fudge AND happy neighbours. Could I have asked for it to turn out any better? I really don’t think so!!

Enjoy, my friends 🙂

Boozy little mouthfuls of heaven!

Ingredients

  • 450 g (2 cups + ½ cup) white chocolate, broken into pieces

  • 397 g (14oz tin) sweetened condensed milk

  • 150 g (1 cups) raisins

  • 3 tbsp dark rum

Directions

  • Line an 8″ square tin with parchment paper. In a small microwave-safe bowl, mix the raisins and 2 tbsp of the rum together, then microwave for 30-45 seconds to warm up (see notes below), then give it one last stir through. Set aside.
  • Put your white chocolate and condensed milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt together in 10-20 second bursts, stirring in between, until completely melted together.
  • Stir the remaining rum into your fudge mix, then add the boozy raisins and stir through.
  • Tip your fudge mix into your prepared pan, push into the corners and smooth over the top. Chill for a couple of hours before cutting into chunks to enjoy.

Notes

  • I find heating the raisins and rum together helps it absorb quicker. You can leave it to soak overnight too, of course, this is just a quick fix/cheat I use!
  • This turns out to be quite a soft fudge. I find it’s best kept cool, or even in the fridge, when not being served/eaten.
  • You can make this with milk or dark chocolate if you wish. It will, of course, change the final flavour of the fudge. I prefer white chocolate for the best flavour, but feel free to change to your tastes!

    Outstanding fudge – def need to be sweet toothed ( think the white chocolate makes it sweeter) but that makes them go further for us – just a great treat.
