Red Velvet Fudge

I already have one red velvet fudge recipe on my site, and while it is delicious, it is completely different from this recipe. (and I can proudly say that both of these recipes are original!)

  • 4 1/2 c confectioners sugar
  • 1 c cocoa powder
  • 12 tbsp. 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 c whole milk room temperature
  • 1 one-ounce bottle Red McCormick® food coloring
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 12-ounce bag of milk chocolate chips or 12 ounces good quality chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder - optional


  • In a small bowl, sift together the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter and whisk for 2 minutes on high speed.
  • Turn the mixer off and add in sugar/cocoa mixture.
  • With mixer on low speed, add in milk, red food coloring and vinegar. (Carefully pour in food coloring into the center of the butter mixture)
  • Whisk on low/medium low speed until smooth.

To make fudge:

  • In the microwave in a large bowl, melt chocolate for 1 minutes, stir, then in 30 second increments until mostly melted.
  • Add 2 cups of red velvet frosting and stir until fully combined. (you will have some frosting left over.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months)
  • Press fudge into a 9x13 pan lined with parchment.
  • Chill for 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve cut into 1x1 pieces.
  • Right before serving sprinkle with cocoa powder. (cocoa will turn darker the longer it sits on the fudge)
