I suddenly got this brilliant idea that I wanted to make Red Velvet fudge. So I sat down and googled it, hoping for a great, no fail recipe.
Those words are very important to a bad recipe follower like myself.
No such luck.
I couldnt even find a match for ‘red velvet fudge’.
I was totally dejected.
Then it hit me… I could create a recipe!
At the very least, significantly modify an existing one.
I started here, with Martha’s Foolproof Holiday Fudge.
I added food coloring and used white chocolate chips and red cherry flavored chips.
Talk about significant modifications. *snort*
Thing is, this recipe is just not my favorite. It was good, but not mind blowing.
(side by side comparison of the two recipes I made… I love the texture on the second)
So then I found a recipe on allrecipes.com. I read it twenty seven times. I read every comment.
I figured, if I could make a recipe for red velvet fudge, like real red velvet fudge, it would be from this one.
*Next time I make this I am going to try 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1/2 cup sweet condensed milk… I think it could handle a little more sweetness!
If you ever try this, please let me know what you think!
Happy Note to Share:
I had read that a great way to clean your pot after baking fudge is to add some milk, reheat the pot, then enjoy a wonderfully delicious cup cocoa… or in our case, Red Velvet Hot Cocoa!!
Yes, I really did just say Red Velvet Hot Cocoa. I actually did that and can attest to its wonderfulness!!
