Steps To Make Red Velvet Fudge

1. Prepare The First Layer

This fudge recipe is indeed really easy to put together and will barely take any time or effort! Here, start off by lining the cake pan with parchment paper and keep it aside. Now, in a large, microwave-safe bowl, add in the white and milk chocolate chips or chunks, along with the sweetened condensed milk. 

Microwave for 15-30 seconds at a time until everything is melted. Here, make sure to take the bowl out at 30-second intervals and mix everything up as otherwise, the chocolate will end up getting really lumpy. 

After everything has reached the right consistency, add in a few teaspoons of red food coloring until you are satisfied with the outcome. Then, transfer the mixture to the pan that was previously lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for some time. 

2. Add The Second Layer

While the first layer of the red velvet fudge is in the refrigerator for a bit, you can begin with the second layer, which is the frosting. For that, melt the portion of white chocolate for the frosting in the microwave. Again, take it out at 30-second intervals, give it a mix, and then melt it again in the microwave. 

Once the chocolate has melted completely, add the softened cream cheese to it and mix until everything is incorporated together. Now, pour this frosting over the red velvet fudge that you previously made and were chilling in the refrigerator. 

Refrigerate for a little longer, and then serve! Right before serving, you will have to take the parchment paper out of the pan and place it on a chopping board. I would recommend dipping a sharp knife in warm water before cutting out pieces of the fudge, as that will give you much cleaner cuts.

Coming to the flavor, the basic flavor that you would expect out of this fudge is sweet and that white chocolate. The cream cheese adds a little undertone of flavor, and so does the milk chocolate in the actual fudge!
