Raspberry White Fudge Cookie Cutters

Part of the holiday tradition is making memories and what better to do then a project together to give to your family and friends? This year my husband and I tried this quick and easy fudge recipe. The original recipe calls for cherry extract, but that doesn't exist in all 4 stores I tried so I went with raspberry. My husbands only comment is that we should have added some food coloring to the fudge to make it light pink.

Fudge can be a tricky thing to make if it doesn't set up right, so I was very pleased at how this recipe came out nice and firm.

Raspberry White Fudge Cookie Cutter Gifts
(Adapted from Pillsbury)

1 package (12 ounces) white vanilla chrips (2 cups)
1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
1/2 teaspoon raspberry extract
decorator frosting
colored sugars
Line a large cookie sheet with foil. Spray foil then cookie cutters; place on foil-lined cookie sheet. Melt vanilla chips in a saucepan over low heat; stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in frosting and extract.
Fill each cookie cutter with mixture. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. Decorate as desired.

Wrap each filled cookie cutter with cellophane or plastic wrap; tie with ribon and store in the refrigerator.

Next up is a soup for the soul and another craft project!


  1. You are really clever! This is a great idea.

  2. Allie, how clever! I bought this mold thing (made out of that new rubber material) that has mini shapes. Whatever you put in them is suppose to pop out easily.

    Do you think this recipe could be used with this new toy I bought?

  3. I put the fudge in the fridge overnight and it hardened up within 30 mins of being in there. I would guess if you sprayed the mold before putting the fudge in it should work.

    My only complaint is that the sprinkles don't stick to the fudge after it hardens so next time I would put them on while it's still melted.

  4. Great idea using the Christmas shapes. What a great addition to a holiday display.

    And your flavored Vodka.........(hic!)

  5. These are so cute, I'm sure they taste good too!
