Red Velvet Fudge for Christmas Week
I made this gorgeous Easy Red Velvet Fudge for 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 my take on this incredible Red and White Swirled Fudge from The Cafe Sucre Farine, 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!
Easy Fudge Recipe
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. The holidays are such a busy time, that an easy fudge recipe makes a lot of sense. Especially when it’s creamy and delicious!
A Double Decker Oreo Fudge also was a huge hit with my family. To create this red velvet fudge recipe, I added 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 made 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 timing 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. Add this red velvet fudge recipe to your holiday “baking” list.
