This heart-shaped Red Velvet Fudge is incredibly easy to make! It uses marshmallow fluff so you can have fudge without all the fuss!
I think that secret is out. I love fudge. I am always playing around with new ideas and experimenting with recipes. I think my favourite fudge is a classic chocolate old fashioned fudge. The kind that requires a candy thermometer. I’m old school.
However I know a lot of folks prefer easier recipes. So I also enjoy experimenting with no bake fudge recipes, or recipes like that one that’s a bit of an easier fudge to make. It’s is not a no bake version but it’s not difficult either.
This particular recipe uses evaporated milk, and marshmallow fluff. It’s super simple to make and the taste is sublime. The texture is not as hard as old fashioned fudge but not as soft as no bake fudge.
What I love about this one is it’s easy to pour into a candy molds. Some of the old fashioned fudges or penuche recipes can be tricky to time perfectly in order to get it into molds before it starts to harden.
The plan was to clean up the edges, but then I realized I liked them a bit imperfect. It works. Life, and love, are not perfect so why should I spend all that time making this look absolutely perfect. Makes no sense to me.
Besides the fact that I was a bit busy this week. I had to visit the hospital for some tests, nothing tragic. But I was a bit distracted this week so spending time cleaning up the edges of fudge for photos just was not a priority.
I’ve spent the last few days sleeping up a storm. I typically really struggle with sleep, I’ve had insomnia for eons. So sleeping 12 to 14 hour at a time has been a bit hard to get used to. Not that I’m complaining, I feel very well rested at the moment.
However with all this sleeping interrupting my life I didn’t realize Valentine’s Day was creeping up so quick. So here’s a quick, last minute idea for all you slackers out there.
Or for all you peeps like me who believe red velvet should be a year round obsession. I make it for Easter and Christmas too. It’s not strictly a Valentine’s Day thing. Not in my world!
