Sugar Free Fruit Fudges

Sugar Free Fudge Dried Fruit Sugar

Sugar free fruit fudges work well because the fruit you use in your mixture will often bring an added sweetness with it. Raisins, sultanas, cranberries and other dried fruit are incredibly high in natural sugar and will give an extra sugary burst as you bite into the fudge.Try teaming the fruit up with other flavours as well, to create unusual varieties of sugar free fudge. Cranberries work well with apples, for example, and raisins are delicious with ground almonds. And of course chocolate is always delicious with any fruit. Adults can also choose to add a splash of brandy to liven their fruit fudge up a little!

Sugar Free Hazelnut And Raisin Fudge

This is a serious fudge to get stuck into. Overflowing with fruit and nuts, it has wonderful bite and is extremely filling.


  • 400g (14oz) cocoa powder
  • 75g (2.5oz) whole hazelnuts
  • 75g (2.5oz) plump raisins
  • 30g (1oz) butter
  • 350ml double cream
  • Four tbsp honey


Take a large pan and in it place your cocoa powder, butter and honey. Stir over a gently heat until completely melted and your liquid is smooth. Slowly stir in your double cream. Then add your raisins and your hazelnuts. Pour your mixture into a greased fudge tin and allow to cool. Then place in the fridge and leave to set over night. Once solid, mark out and cut into squares.

Cranberry And Apple Fudge

This fudge uses honey again as a sweetener. Added sugar free apple juice also gives it a sweet boost.


  • Three tbsp honey
  • 200ml double cream
  • 30g (1oz) butter
  • 50ml sugar free apple juice
  • 100g (3.5oz) dried cranberries


Gently melt your butter and honey together in a medium-sized pan. Then stir in your apple juice and your cranberries. Once completely mixed, remove from the heat and allow to cool. After 10 minutes, stir in your double cream. Pour your mixture into a greased fudge tin and leave to cool. Then place in the fridge over night to set. Mark out and cut into squares.

Chocolate Orange Fudge

The fruit in this recipe is sultana but the strongest flavour comes from the orange. Both work with the granulated sweetener as a sugar replacement. The combination of the strong chocolate with the rich fruitiness of the orange and sultana will create a delicious winter fudge.


  • 110g (4oz) cocoa powder
  • 110g (4oz) butter
  • One tsp vanilla essence
  • Two sweet oranges
  • 550ml double cream
  • 100g (3.5oz) sultanas
  • Five tbs granulated sweetener (or as per manufacturer’s instructions)


Melt your butter, cocoa and sweetener in a large pan over a low heat. Stir until completely dissolved. Add your vanilla essence and stir again. Squeeze the juice from your two sweet oranges and grate the zest from the fruit. Stir both the orange juice and zest into your liquid. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Then stir in your cream and your sultanas. Pour into a greased fudge tin and place in a fridge over night to set. Cut into squares the following day.

    Re: No Sugar Sponge Cakes
    Instead of honey use xylitol. Perfect for diabetics and tastes as good as refined sugar. Add some vanilla as well for a bit of taste

    3 tbs Honey = 51 grams sugar. I'm diabetic so this recipe would be a disaster.
