Raisin Cashew Fudge Drops are a fun, delicious homemade gift. These fun little chocolate treats are irresistible!

Okay, so this is not a peanut butter recipe because I’m taking a short break from peanut butter recipes, but this recipe does include nuts!

If you count on me to provide you generally nutty recipes, then these Raisin Cashew Fudge Drops still count because… cashews!

While I’m diehard for peanut butter, and it’s my favorite food through and through, I also just love nuts in general, and there isn’t a single nut I’d turn down. What about you?

Cashews are my #1. These Raisin Cashew Fudge Drops jumped out at me in a magazine recently, and I couldn’t wait to make them.

I have such a lengthy list of things I want to make, and yet these managed to jump to the top of the list. I couldn’t wait!

I think they called out to me for a few reasons, but primarily that they’re so incredibly simple, quick to make from start-to-finish, but also that each ingredient is well-selected and well-represented!

Just a few simple ingredients and a few easy steps to make up an exceptional homemade candy!

Funnily enough, I don’t even like raisins, but there are two exceptions: in oatmeal cookies, and when doused in chocolate. Those are the only two scenarios where I like raisins.

Give me an ultra-chewy, super buttery, thick oatmeal cookie, and I’ll want it to have a ton of raisins (um, or butterscotch chips). When I’m at a grocery store that has a nice bulk foods section and I spot chocolate-covered raisins, I cannot resist stocking up.

There’s something super addicting about those little devils.

And throw in my favorite nut? I’m totally in. I love these little nuggets.

It’s not just raisins and cashews coated in melted chocolate…. no, it’s actually fudge! The raisins and cashews are nestled in pools of fudge.

It’s a ‘quick fudge’, that’s what I always call it… milk chocolate chips melted with sweetened condensed milk – it’s the easiest way to make fudge.

This Nutella Fudge is a good example of how it works! ‘Quick fudge’ is also what fills the center of these White Chocolate Fudge Puddles.

These Raisin Cashew Fudge Drops are fabulous because you can prep the candy in sheer minutes, and they set up quickly too. One of the easiest candy recipes you’ll ever find and jam-packed with delicious stuff!

If you find yourself needing to pull together a dessert in a short amount of time, these Raisin Cashew Fudge Drops are an excellent option.
