This Red Velvet Fudge is layered with chocolate sandwich cookies and loads of Valentine chocolates and sprinkles. It’s a simple gourmet fudge recipe that is festive and delicious.
Red Velvet Fudge
If you are new to AMFT, you will learn that I’m slightly addicted to fudge. I find any reason to make it and make it all year long. I try to keep it simple, because who has time for long drawn out fudge recipes! My red velvet fudge uses canned frosting to keep this recipe simple, just like my Valentine’s Day Fudge.
Add in your favorite Valentine’s chocolate candies (I love picking up a bag of pink, white, and red M&Ms) and lots of Valentine’s sprinkles to add a festive touch. Of course, you could totally turn this Red Velvet Fudge into a Christmas version too by swapping out to Christmas M&Ms and Christmas sprinkles. Wouldn’t that be fun?!?!
Can Fudge be Refrigerated?
Absolutely. In fact fudge will last longer when stored in the fridge. It can last 2 weeks in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Just let it come up to room temperature before serving.
But can Fudge go in the Freezer?
YES!!! The best way to store fudge in the freezer and get the best results is to wrap fudge with plastic wrap, then put in a freezer bag or container. The goal is to keep ice crystals from forming. Freezing fudge is a great time saver when planning for a party, dessert tray, or holidays and want to start cooking ahead. So go ahead and make an extra batch and freeze it for later.
Valentine Fudge Gifts
I made a double batch of this red velvet fudge and turned them into Valentine Fudge Gifts for friends, family, and people that we work with (think Scouts leaders, sports coaches, teachers, Bible study leaders, etc). It’s nice to show a little appreciation throughout the year, especially when it’s so easy. Just pick up some cellophane bags and cute ribbon then put a few pieces of fudge in each bag.
- 1 container ready made Vanilla frosting
- 1 (12 ounce) bag of white chocolate chips
- red gel dye
- 1/2 -1 package chocolate sandwich cookies
- various Valentine sprinkles, chocolate candies
- Prepare an 8"x8" baking pan by lining it with foil, leaving some hanging over the edge. Place a single layer of chocolate sandwich cookies on the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
- Place white chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl and set aside.
- Place container of frosting in the microwave, heat for 20 to 30 seconds until it is hot and completely melted. Once the frosting is melted pour over the white chocolate chips and let the heat from the frosting melt the chocolate. Stir until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Add red food coloring and mix (to get a deep red, it will take at least half the bottle, possibly the entire bottle).
- Pour fudge into prepared pan and top with Valentine's chocolates and sprinkles. Place in the refrigerator to set up then cut into one inch squares..
