Red Velvet Fudge
Red. Velvet. Fudge. It’s the stuff that my dreams were made of until I finally decided to come up with a recipe to make those dreams a reality.
My Mother-in-Law loves red velvet-anything and so this recipe is partly inspired by her love for red velvet foods and also my Chocolate Walnut Fudge recipe.
This Red Velvet Fudge recipe is so smooth because it has mini marshmallows, butter and white chocolate.
It has full, rich flavor due to the butter and the combination of white chocolate, vanilla and cocoa powder. Yes, the combination of white chocolate and cocoa powder is a deliberate combination on my part. Could you get a brighter red without the cocoa powder, sure but you would be missing out on that rich, chocolate flavor.
