That Skinny Chick Can Bake’s version of the Winter White Red Velvet Fudge includes a detailed explanation on what she changed from the original recipe in addition to how much attention should be paid to accurate temperatures and textures while baking the tasty treat.
“To create this red velvet fudge recipe, I added red food coloring, semi-sweet and white chocolate for the red fudge and just white chocolate chips for the white fudge. A little swirling action made it ever so festive,” she explains, “I do recommend boiling the sugar syrup mixture till it reaches 234º even though the recipe on the back of the marshmallow creme jar gives the option to boil for 5 minutes. Using a thermometer guarantees you’ve cooked it to the proper soft ball stage. The timing method may not.”
