Red Velvet Fudge

This spectacular Red Velvet Fudge was a perfect addition to our Christmas goodies! Making batch after batch of fudge is a holiday tradition at our house.

Red Velvet Fudge for Christmas Week

I made this gorgeous 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!

 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.  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.

Swing by all the participants to see what they’ve been whipping up for the holidays:
