How to Make Easy Red Velvet Fudge
There is something so rich, so inviting about red velvet chocolate. I love it in cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. So I decided to try my hand at making a red velvet fudge.
And you know what? It was so easy. It came out perfect. That deep red color shows off so perfectly when you give it as a gift.
This is what you will need before you make it:
- 1 box red velvet cake mix
- Powdered Sugar
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
What is Red Velvet?
I love red velvet so much because it is a bold red chocolate. Yup! Red velvet is just chocolate with red dye. Shocking, right? There really isn’t a “red velvet” flavor exactly. It’s chocolate. With a really a bold red color.
Can You Make Fudge in the Microwave?
Yes, you sure can. I made mine in the microwave and then let it chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. It came out with the perfect consistency.
How Do You Make Fudge on the Stovetop?
To make fudge on the stove, just melt all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once everything is mixed and melted, remove it from the heat.
Then, use a separate bowl to mix in the chocolate chips. Put the fudge mixture into your 8×8 pan and refrigerate for 2 hours.
How Long Will Fudge Last At Room Temperature?
If you store your fudge in an airtight container, it will last about 1-2 weeks at room temperature. Refrigerating your fudge will extend its shelf life to about 2-3 weeks.
