For my coworkers birthdays, I have sent surveys to ask for their favorite desserts. My one coworker said “anything with raspberries and chocolate” so I went about trying to find a fun recipe that included both. I was surfing through allrecipes.com and came upon a beautiful looking chocolate and raspberry layered fudge recipe.
It started out pretty good… made some easy chocolate fudge and layered it on the botton… then made some of the raspberry fudge and layered it on top, then topped it with raspberries.
It sure looked pretty.
That is… until I tried to get it out.
Turns out, the top layer didn’t actually set up. It was basically raspberry mush… and it caused what can only be defined as “goop” to spread all over the fudge below as soon as I cut into it.
Don’t get me wrong, it still tasted DEElicious, but it was a sloppy, gooey, sticky mess.
The notes on the recipe said that a lot of people had this issue, and I should have listened. Only a few people had issues, so I figured they screwed up and if I followed the recipe pretty closely, I’d be fine. Wrong. It didn’t seem that the ratios between the chocolate fudge and the raspberry fudge were that different, but white chocolate does act very differently. I would make this again, but with more white chocolate and no cream, and perhaps some gelatin.
