Chocolate Spiced Rum Raisin Fudge

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Happy Monday! One of my favorite ice cream flavors is rum+raisin. Right now it’s too cold to eat ice cream so I decided to make fudge with these ingredients.

I didn’t have spiced rum so I made my own mixing vanilla extract, cloves, cinnamon and star anise. For this recipe, you need patience because you need the raisins to soak into the rum and then you have to let the fudge rest in the fridge overnight.

This fudge is only made with sweetened condensed milk which makes it easier and cheaper than other recipes.

Let’s start with the recipe!


For the Spiced Rum Raisins

1 cup black raisins

1/3 cup dark rum

1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 whole cloves

1 star anise

1 cinnamon stick

For the chocolate fudge

3 cups dark chocolate

1 can sweetened condense milk


For the rum raisins

In a small bowl mix raisins, rum, vanilla, cloves, star anise and cinnamon stick. Mix and let it rest for 2 hours.

After 2 hours…

1.- Take out the cinnamon stick, cloves and star anise. Reserve 1/4 cup of raisins for garnish.

2.- Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.

For the chocolate fudge

1.- Place a small pan inside a larger pan filled partially with water to make a double boiler. In the small pan mix chocolate with condensed milk. Heat the pot over low heat to gently melt the chocolate, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

2.- Stir in 3/4 cup of the raisins with all the liquid. Mix until fully incorporated and remove from heat.

3.- Pour chocolate mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth out the fudge with a spatula to remove air bubbles.

4.- Sprinkle 1/4 cup of raisins that you reserved.

5.- Let the fudge to cool room temperature. Cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge overnight.

Next day…

Lift the paper containing the fudge out of the pan and cut fudge into 1-inch pieces . If the fudge starts to stick too much, dip your knife into hot water and keep cutting.
