Red Velvet Fudge #ChristmasWeek #Giveaway

Making batch after batch of fudge is a holiday tradition at our house, so when I saw this gorgeous Red Velvet Fudge on The Cafe Sucre Farine, I knew I’d have to recreate it!

Christmas Week

Welcome to Day One of Christmas Week. This event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We hope to inspire you to break out those holiday sprinkles and get your bake on! I whipped up this incredible Marbled Red Velvet Fudge  for my neighborhood Christmas cookie exchange tomorrow. Not exactly a cookie, but I have a feeling there will be no complaints. It’s also my sweet contribution for  kickoff day of Christmas Week!

 A Twist on the Classic Fantasy Fudge

I whip up batches and batches of Fantasy Fudge each Christmas. Made with a jar of marshmallow creme and chocolate chips, it’s basically foolproof. This recipe adds red food coloring, semi-sweet and white chocolate for the red fudge and just white chocolate chips for the white fudge. A little swirling action makes it ever so festive! I broke out my candy thermometer and started the process I could do in my sleep.  I do recommend boiling the sugar syrup mixture till it reaches 234º even though the recipe on the back of the marshmallow creme jar gives the option to boil for 5 minutes. Using a thermometer guarantees you’ve cooked it to the proper soft ball stage…the time method may not. I was delighted with the results. Bill is not a fan of red velvet anything, but I offered him a sliver as I was cutting the squares. He practically groaned with approval. I have a feeling my sweet neighbors will agree.

  2. Place semi-sweet chocolate chips and food coloring in a heat safe bowl and set aside.

  1. Liz,
    This fudge looks so festive! I think while I’m asking Santa for a new kitchen thermometer (my old glass one broke in the drumstick at Thanksgiving, and the batteries leaked inside my newer one) I’ll ask for a candy thermometer.

  48. Do you have any suggestion for what can I replace the marshmallow creme with?

    • Hi, Vivian,

      If you have access to marshmallows, use approximately 7 ounces of marshmallows in place of the marshmallow creme. I’d cut them up a bit so they melt more easily. Great question!
