Nutella Fudge with Raspberries

This rich fudge is made with Nutella instead of chocolate. Fresh raspberries are pressed in before it cools to balance the sweetness. Get ready for a Nutella Coma, or as I like to call it, Nutelloma. It’s totally a thing.

My brother was telling me the other day that when he’s consistent about working out, it’s so much easier for him to say no to dessert. I was just sitting there thinking that I’m always telling myself the EXACT opposite thing.

Oh, I just burned 200 calories running around my house? Then it’s almost like this little bite of Nutella Fudge NEVER EVEN HAPPENED. It’s the power of cancellation my friends. See, math is fun!

You know what else is fun? Galentine’s Day. I’ll spell it out for you: it’s the day before Valentines’ Day and before we get all smoochy kissy with our dudes, it’s time to remember: Ovaries before brovaries. Uteruses before duderuses. If you haven’t caught on yet I’m guessing you’re a guy.

I’m getting together with a bunch of other blogger gals to celebrate our gal-ness. I’m bringing this Nutella Fudge with Raspberries to the party. Any kind of fudge always reminds me of Nikki, my older sister. She can eat an entire pan of fudge in 1 day. Okay, so maybe this hasn’t been certified, but I wouldn’t put it past her.

Nikki is not only my fudge-eating idol, she’s one of my favorite moms that I look up to. Nikki had 5 kids in 8 years, so she knows what’s up. She like a marathon mom. She has the most creative disciplinary tactics of anyone I’ve ever met. When her kids misbehave, they lose their dessert after dinner that night. If they misbehave again, the next step in the line of punishment is that Nikki will serve their portion of dessert, then sit in front of them and eat it while they watch. Pure torture.

She’s also one of the most patient people I know. (Her children are all not-strangled, so this is proof of that.) Like I said, she’s patient enough to work her way through an entire pan of fudge even. I sent her this Nutella Fudge with Raspberries for her birthday a while back and she said, I really love it, and this coming from someone who thought regular fudge could not be improved upon.

But I don’t have just Fudge for you today! Be sure to check out all these other amazing recipes my friends put together for Galentine’s Day! Get ready to frill out:

Nutella Fudge with Raspberries

Yield: Makes 16-24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or half and half
  • 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar, light or dark
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, divided

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 in pan with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray. Spread 1 cup raspberries over the bottom of the pan.
  2. Measure out 1 cup of Nutella so that it's ready. In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, measure out 2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar and set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, add butter and melt over medium heat.
  4. Add milk and brown sugar and stir to combine.
  5. Bring to a hard rolling boil over medium heat. Once it has reached a full boil, set a timer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. When the timer goes off, add the vanilla and Nutella. Stir until combined.
  7. Working quickly, pour the mixture over the powdered sugar that you put in the bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. The fudge should be quite thick at this point. If it's not, add powdered sugar a little at a time, up to 1/2 cup. I didn't add any extra.
  8. Pour or scoop the fudge into the prepared pan, on top of the raspberries. Spread quickly, then use your palms to press in the remaining raspberries.
  9. At this point I used a paper towel to absorb some oil that had pooled on top.
  10. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set.
  11. Lift foil from pan and use a sharp knife to cut into pieces.

Notes

This fudge is solid at room temperature, but the liquid from the raspberries will make it quite soft if left on the counter. If you are going for presentation I would refrigerate it. I like it left on the counter, but it will only last 1-2 days without refrigerating.

    Anyone who’s kids are not “all strangled” is definitely winning at parenthood, lol. This is a great tribute to your sister, Karen. Five kids in eight years?! How is Nikki still standing? Her punishment game is spot on – we could all learn from her. She definitely deserves a pan of this fudge all to herself. Happy Galentine’s Day, my friend!

    I’m telling you, it’s like we’re the same person. Since my photo studio is upstairs, I’m always running up and down with trays of food. I must run up and down about 50 times a day. That being said, I can have cake. All the cake. I’ll take some of this fudge too. Pinned.

    Oooo girl! Does this ever look good. And your sister sounds amazing. I used to work at a summer camp and he had a similar disciplinary strategy. I still remember a kid misbehaving at the movie theater and first having his candy taken away and then having to watch our camp leader eat it in front of him. Dessert is a powerful motivator, this I know. :) So glad you joined in the party Karen!

    Okay, Karen, I am already in love here. You see, I got to you from Crazy for Crust (we both got Dorothy’s awesome shout out), and now I see you love to play with words. And you are a great writer. And I’m an English teacher, so I’m pretty much digging your blog like crazy right now.
    Can’t wait to get to know you. And BTW, love this fudge. I mean, I love all fudge, but this one is up there. And your friend Nicki is awesome. I should torture my children like that!
