This fudge is gorgeous red creamy perfection. Great for Valentine's Day too! Love the re velvet hot cocoa.

Jessica @ How Sweet

Wow! Divine!


OMG!! I can't think of any fudge more fitting to the holidays♥ I would LOVE to make these for Christmas :D

Buttermilk isn't sold here in Japan, is there any way I can replace it with something else??



Gorgeous! I've always loved ♥Red Velvet♥ everything...now I can add fudge to the list! Fantastic Amanda!


Awesome! I like the color from the first batch.

Just a thought...I'm going to be using red candy melts to make red fondant (for Colton's rocket cake)...I'm thinking you could use them to add depth of flavor and color to the second version of fudge you made. It would certainly add that sweetness!


That looks pretty festive! I never would have thought 'red velvet fudge' before!


Love the look of texture on the second as well, awesome job! :)


Looks yummy. :) I was wondering if you had a red velvet cake recipe. I am in the mood to make one and haven't seen one that I like just yet. :)


your presentation is lovely!
& of course the fudge…i am a fudge lover! thanks!


Beautiful! Love the color of the fudge. Whew! Sounds like a lot of work though. That's pretty neat about the milk afterward to make the cocoa. Yummm

I just love your posts. This looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing your ideas and recipes. Have a great weekend!


Some great information in this post! I love seeing people experiment and post their results - way to go!

Look at you following recipes & showing us both versions - love that. I would opt for the second batch too. The color is more true to red velvet & the texture does look dreamy. I bet the other is great but looks more like a giant Starburst! You rock girl :) xo


Looks delicious!


I'm not a fan of red velvet cake but this looks yummy.

Girl...I am in love with the fudge. GORGEOUS!!

I agree, the texture on the second one is much more red velvet-ey...the color, too.

You are too cool for school.


Wooooooow! I'm just embarking on the adventure of Fudge (got a candy that falls inbetween taffy and very firm caramel!!).

These bites look fabulous! Thanks for sharing!


Great idea!!! Love it!


Ai, you can substitute buttermilk by placing 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a cup and adding enough milk to be 1 cup. Then let it stand for 10 minutes until the milk starts to curdle. Stir and use as buttermilk.

Amanda, the second fudge looks perfect. Rich and delicious and still tasting of cocoa. Love.


Wow - I love it! I will bookmark this recipe; they are beautiful! Can't wait to try this!

Okay...I love the Red Velvet Fudge recipe idea...and I adore the presentation with the Holly paper and the wooden box....but the concept of the Red Velvet Cocoa, is something I truly want to create!! Sounds heavenly!


I must live under a baker's rock because I have never had red velvet anything. Seriously, no cake, cupcakes, cookies or this lovely looking fudge. Kudos to you for creating the recipe!


Such beautiful fudge! Red Velvet in fudge form is SO PERFECT for Christmas!

Michelle (What's Cooking with Kids)

Love your creativity and resourcefulness!


So many awesome ideas... I will definitely attempt this recipe when I get home from college! Oh how I miss having access to a kitchen and all my baking supplies!

Momma McCall

I'm totally impressed and will be sucking off your cool for sure this Christmas- great gift idea!

Angela Gifford

That looks wonderful!! I'm definitely going to have to try that. So pretty!


Okay... I have to admit that the redness of the first ones creeps me out a bit. It's too... "Fake food" looking to me. Just being honest. BUT, those second red velvet ones... Oh!!! I'd bite into one of those in a second - and you know I'm a picky person when it comes to anything chocolatey! Very creative, though, Amanda!


Your Red velvet fudge looks and sounds delicious. Can't wait to try it.


Does this turn your mouth and teeth red when you eat it?


I've heard of and like Oreo fudge but never red velvet! Have u had it? Or just decide it would be good(I'll reread in case u answered this.)
Anyway, I'm going.to.just give you my husbands.comment when I showed him your post. I quote...whoa, that looks.so good it'd hurt....and it does.


I love red velvet cake and cupcakes, so I am so excited about this!!! Thank you for sharing!

Healthy Foods

Another great specialty from our very own mommy!


Those 2nd red velvet fudge looks yummy!!!I only wish I had half the imagination that u have Amanda...I cannot think of any new ideas...I can only copy : (


So weird. I was looking at foodgawker and saw someone made red velvet hot cocoa and then i thought about all the hot chocolate on a stick posts recently and wondered if there was a red velvet fudge recipe out there. and like you..found nothing. this could work! I just thought it would be neat and interesting to give away red velvet hot chocolate on a stick with maybe a cream cheese flavoured marshmallow. thanks for posting this recipe!


I agree...the texture is more inviting on the second batch. Cute idea and it looks adorable wrapped in the holly tissue.

(And I loved the cake in your previous post!)

Kristin Morris


I made this! It was absolutely DELICIOUS! Except I made it with the 1/2 c buttermilk and 1/2 swntd. cnd. milk. It was delicious! Perfect sweetness/chocolate balance. I do just have one issue, maybe you can help me. When I was at the "stirring til no sheen" part, it was fine. AS SOON AS I stopped stirring, and grabbed my pan to put it in, it got rock hard. I had to scrape it out and mesh it together in the pan. LOL. It was delicious still, but crumbly, like left out play-doh. What do you think went wrong?


Wow, I am seriously speachless. This has got to be one of the most creative fudges I have ever seen.


I may or may not consume embarrassing amounts of Red Velvet cake every year on my birthday when my mother-in-law makes me a the special cake! Can't imagine how good this fudge is! I've never made fudge...until now! Thanks for figuring this out for us! You're the best!


now i'm convinced--there's a red velvet version of every dessert possible. good for you for experimenting--both versions look luscious to me!


hi, after seeing your blog, i made it immediately yesterday but i failed miserably. i am not good a blogging and had spent the whole day till late at night looking for a blog so i could share my pictures (http://schweetgigi.weebly.com/desserts.html). i also have the same question like Kristin Morris on regards to "stirring till no sheen". i hope to hear from you soon :)


p.s. i realized my link included in the text doesn't work(!!) but it worked when clicking at "Posted by: Schweetooth" duh! i am so blur!


I made the 1/2 sweet condensed milk and 1/2 buttermilk (with "fake" buttermilk since I didn't have any handy) and it turned out great. I took it to our Sunday School class party today and everyone loved it!

red velvet fudge! brilliant and such a crowd pleaser. thanks for the idea and the recipe. :)


This is just so brilliant!


WoW! The idea is so refreshing, have to apply it in my baking! Thanks for this sharing this brilliant recipe, your a genius!

onceupona baker

love the deep red color! love it!!! I have awarded your blog with the stylish award!! :) checkout my blog for detail and you can copy and save the stylish award that you can add and be proud of on your blog. you make some amazing thing....drool!


YUM!!! I can't wait to try this!!!! The bright red color of the first one is out of this world - it really did remind me of a fondant (like Crystal mentioned). The second one looks divine! My permanent post-partum tummy thanks you! :)

Lori @ RecipeGirl

Great idea. But does it really taste like red velvet? Or is it more the texture that is divine?


What a fun idea for a treat! Love the bright red color. And what the looks of it, seems like it tastes super delish.
