Red Velvet Fudge Recipe

Growing up my grandma made fudge it always looked really complicated and when I inherited her cookbook I steered well away from the recipes. But, then we made it in the slow cooker and microwave, and I was hooked.

From then I experimented and discovered that you can even make it on the stove without having to worry about getting that temperature right at all.

So what are the ingrdients:

  • 3 C sugar
  • ¾ C unsalted sweet cream butter
  • ⅔ C half and half cream
  • 2 C white chocolate chips
  • 1 7 oz jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips 
  • 3 TBSP red food coloring

I like this much better than our white chocolate fudge as although I have a sweet tooth I find I can’t eat very much white chocolate without feeling a little sick as it is so sweet. The semi-sweet chocolate chips help make the red velvet really tone down the sweetness from the white chocolate.
