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.

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

  1. Liz you are amazing! You are always the recipes stunning! Love this one, he has the colour of Christmas time! I would like win the vintage jars from Ball! Love it !

  2. Cookie baking is my favorite thing during the holiday season…But your red velvet fudge looks fantastic, Liz!

  3. That’s really hard to answer, I bake/cook about 20 different confections for my holiday trays and I love them all. But, I do about a half dozen varieties of fudge, so I guess that might answer that question:)

  4. CANDIED NUTS!

  5. I love to make gingerbread cake with applesauce and also kolaches

  6. Lizzy,
    I bake dozens and dozens of cookies. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  7. I like to bake chocolate chips cookies.

  8. 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!

  9. This is such festive looking fudge – perfect for Christmas.

  10. If you don’t have access to a candy thermometer, how long would you boil the mixture to get to a soft-ball stage?

    • You can try to bring it to a full rolling boil for 4 minutes (that’s what the original “no fail” fudge states). I started using a candy thermometer to ensure a consistent result—it’s hard to tell exactly when you reach a “full” boil, but it should work pretty well. Good luck!!!

  11. Great pick, Liz! Bet they’re gone in no time! xoxo

  12. Oh so much sweetness- this is one of those delicious recipes that I would have to eat in small (although thoroughly enjoyed) bites. Yum!

  13. I can understand why you would make batch after batch of this red velvet fudge! I bet it disappears as fast as it’s ready! So festive too for Christmas!

  14. I love everything red velvet. This fudge looks so gorgeous!
