Raspberry Chocolate Fudge Desserts



This raspberry chocolate fudge dessert was inspired by The Home Baked Vegan's recipe for miniature no-bake chocolate raspberry desserts. The recipe is quite similar, with a few minor tweaks, and one major enhancement: a layer of chocolate fudge.

These Raspberry Chocolate Fudge Desserts are:
Vegan (as always) - this means it is free from dairy, eggs, meat and honey.
Free from processed sugar.
Gluten-free.
Fruity and fudgey.
Delicious.
