Raspberry Fudge Balls

I have used this recipe for last-minute gifts. Friends relish the delectable hint of raspberry and the creamy texture of the fudgy treats. It's the perfect addition to your annual cookie tray. —Maria Jaloszynski, Appleton, Wisconsin

    These were simple to make and great for that little nibble of chocolate at night. i used a good brand of raspberry jam but was unhappy with the amount of seeds that were in each ball. They kept well in the fridge and are gone!

    While these are easy to prepare, in my opinion the flavor just wasn't there. I tried one and wasn't wowed. I waited a day and tried another in case the flavors needed to develop. No better. I used name brand, quality ingredients so I can't blame the lack of flavor on them. I ended up tossing the rest of the batch in the trash. My boss said she had made the recipe the same day (Valentine's Day) for her family and she said she tossed hers too!

    I love these, I roll some in more crushed wafers as my daughter-in - law has an allergy to nuts. Both are yummy!!
