Red Velvet Fudge with a Pecan Sandy Crust

Will the red velvet ever end???????
Possibly not.
You know how you just click with some things in life?
I think I’ve clicked with Red Velvet.
Turns out everything can be made into red velvet.
Which really isn’t a bad thing.
In fact, I daresay it’s a great thing!
You’ll LOVE this fudge.
In fact, make it today.
No, seriously.
Make. It. Today.
And while we’re on the subject of clicking…
Did I tell you this is actually a fudge hop??
Six of us very clickable food bloggers put our heads together to bring you six fudge recipes today!
You can thank us later.
…or now. Whichever works for you.
Seriously though, I feel like I’ve totally “clicked” with these ladies, and they’re awesome!
It’s been just like when you meet that kid on the playground, and you’re both like,
“Wait– you’re totally obsessed with making and blogging about desserts day and night, and that’s all you ever think about, dream about, want out of life??? OMG, me too! BFFs!”
It happens to bloggers too :)
So go on over to their blogs, and see what they’ve made for you today!

Red Velvet White Chocolate Fudge with Pecan Sandy Crust
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups white chocolate chips (I like Nestle)
  • 3 Tbsp. red velvet cake mix
  • 12 pecan sandy cookies
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  1. Over low heat on the stove, mix together the white chocolate and the white chocolate chips.
  2. About halfway through melting, begin adding the cake mix, 1 tbsp. at a time. Mix in completely each time, using a spatula to work out any clumps from the mix.
  3. Crush the pecan sandy cookies and mix with the melted butter. Press into the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish. You can bake at 350º for 3-4 minutes if you want it to be crunchy, or you can leave it unbaked for a soft crust.
  4. Pour the fudge on top of the crust.
  5. Let it cool at room temperature over night or chill for at least an hour.

  15. Just when I was feeling hungry, I had to see this! Ahhh! Looks amazing!

  16. I love the recipes!
    what I don’t love is the difficulty in reading..
    the extremely pale colored print!!
    this seems to be the NORM of late..
    tiny, pale print.
    please have consideration for all of us with vision difficulty!
    thanks again for this wonderful idea!!
    warmest hugs..

  18. Oh my goodness these look so yummy! They’re making my mouth water.

  19. What a yummy and unique recipe. And it was posted on my birthday. (I’m a little bit behind on my Google Reader.) Perfect!

  20. I want to make this fudge recipe. I did not see how much white chocolate to use with the white chocolate chips? How much is needed? you can send the info to my email if you wish I should get it. thanks for sharing the recipe!

    • Hi hon– the white chocolate and the white chocolate chips are the same thing, not two separate ingredients. Hope that helps :)

    • The post says to mix the white chocolate and white chocolate chips together. It should say sweetened condensed milk instead :0)
