Raspberry Layered Fudge

Easter is right around the corner and have I got a dessert for you! If you’re heading to a family gathering or having one of your own or just catching up on Netflix this long weekend, this Raspberry Layered Fudge is for you.

I made this recipe using bittersweet chocolate, but you could use stevia chocolate if you really want to cut back on extra sugar and carbs.  The higher percentage of chocolate, the less sugar is in it.  I personally love 85-90% but since I was sharing with the H, I didn’t want to go too dark or he may find it a tad bitter, but would that really be a bad thing? More for me! (side note: he LOVED these….100% husband approved)

I love the combination of raspberries and chocolate, it’s just so decadent.  And the pink colour makes it festive for Easter.

So let’s get hopping…see what I did there? #BunnyReferenceRaspberry_Layered_Fudge_Low-Sugar_Easter_www.thehappyhealthfreak.com
