I love Fudge,
I love pretty fudge,
I really love this Red Velvet Berry Fudge.
It's sweet, velvety and has sudden bursts of sweet and tart berry pieces.
For me Valentines day is all about pretty, cutesy things tied with up with lovely ribbons.
Look at it. It's all pink and yummy and fudgy.
So are you all ready for Valentines day? or do you have absolutely no clue what your doing or buying?
Well fear not I have you covered.
This fudge is super simple, like no candy thermometer, just melt and stick it in the fridge simple.
I know I'd love for himself to give me this at Valentines, I mean just knowing someone has made the effort to make you something all by themselves totally fills up the love tank.
So if you want to be in the good books this year and score some major brownie points you best get a move on and make this.
Now I did use a white chocolate that had mixed berries through it but if you can't get your hands on any you can buy dried berries or just omit them all together and go for a classic Red Velvet Fudge.
But I'm loving the berries in this.
So now you're sorted, no more need to panic or fret that the mrs/mr is going to think you don't love them because you bought them another pair of socks or sexy underwear that doesn't fit (Yup this happens all the time doesn't it ladies, you'd think they'd know what size we are by now)
I know you'll be thinking by then end of this recipe 'wait you're making me buy a whole box of Red Velvet Cake Mix but I'm only using a little of it what do I do with the rest?'
Ah ha!! I have thought about that as well.
So store the rest of the cake mix and keep an eye out for my next post coming in a couple of days when we'll use up the rest.
200g / 8oz Plain White Chocolate
225g / 8oz White Chocolate with berries (I used Butlers Mixed Berry White Chocolate but you can use whichever type you fancy with whichever berries you like)
75g / 1/2 Cup Red Velvet Cake Mix
12oz tin of Condensed Milk
Red Food Gel
Line an 8x8 square tin with tin foil and set aside.
Chop up all of the white chocolate and place into a medium sized saucepan.
Pour in the condensed milk and, over a medium heat, melt the chocolate and condensed milk together until smooth.
Now stir in the Red Velvet Cake Mix, again until smooth.
Then add in the Red Food Gel until you reach your desired shade.
Quickly pour the fudge mixture into your prepared tin and then pop into the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours (or you can just leave it on the counter over night)
Then slice and serve.
