For many people, the idea of making your own fudge seems as likely and possible as building your own time travel machine. But those people don't know how easy making fudge can be.

Traditionally, making fudge required extensive knowledge of sugar temperature stages, owning a candy thermometer and having a lot of patience, but none of this is necessary in today’s world thanks to the existence of marshmallow crème – most commonly known as Fluff.

Marshmallow creme takes all the guess work and candy-making stress out of the process because it’s already a candy, of sorts. So all that is left to do is to decide what flavor fudge you want and mix the ingredients together.

Because there are very few ingredients in this recipe (and if you’ve read any of my recipes or watched any of my videos, you know what I’m going to say next…), it’s really important that those ingredients be of the highest quality. You won’t be able to mask any flavors when there are few ingredients, so make sure your ingredients are delicious all by themselves.

This recipe for fudge involves two flavors and a swirl. That is very easy to do and you can use whatever flavor you like – just substitute a different jam or preserve for the raspberry. I’ve also included some nuts on top and inside the fudge for a contrasting texture and color. It felt fun and Christmas-y to have a green nut to go with the red raspberry, making these pretty on a holiday tray, so I chose pistachios this time. That, however, could change completely based on your mood (or what is in your cabinet). Have some fun with this. It’s your fudge!

White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Fudge with Pistachios

  • Prep Time: 10 m
  • Cook Time: 5 m
  • Total Time: 15 m
  • Servings:
    36
    3 to 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • cup seedless raspberry preserves
  • cups sugar
  • cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 7 ounces marshmallow cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups high-quality white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup salted and roasted pistachios roughly chopped, divided

Instructions

  1. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan and then line it with parchment paper, letting the ends of the parchment paper drape over two opposite sides of the pan. Butter the parchment paper as well.
  2. Whisk the raspberry preserves in a small bowl to loosen it and then transfer it to a zipper sealable plastic bag. Set it aside.
  3. Combine the sugar, evaporated milk, butter, marshmallow cream and salt in a medium saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the white chocolate chips. Stir until the chocolate has melted and then stir in the vanilla extract and half of the pistachios.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and smooth it out using a flat spatula or by banging the pan on the counter. Cut off a small corner of the zip-lock bag with the raspberry preserves. Drizzle thin lines of the raspberry preserves across the fudge and then run a knife or skewer through the lines to swirl the raspberry into the fudge. Sprinkle the fudge with the remaining chopped pistachio nuts, pushing them gently into the fudge with the back of a spatula. Let the fudge cool at room temperature.
  6. When ready to enjoy, cut the fudge into squares and serve. Store in an airtight container.

    Creamy fudge, tart raspberry and salty crunch pistachios are a trifecta. We got rave reviews over this easy to make fudge. The white chocolate fudge is so decadent and could be a great base for any number of flavor profiles but I don’t think I will mess with perfection.

  3. I made these for Father’s Day, my son in law loves fudge as does my granddaughter. My husband dislikes fudge, white chocolate and raspberries. Well…..after one forced taste he was the happiest person! Loved it! This will be a special occasion treat for sure!
