Making red velvet fudge:

Making fudge for my friends and family is fun and easy. It’s a lot more cost effective than buying it in shops or stores as well!

How much red velvet fudge does this recipe make?

Pretty much all of my fudge recipe are designed to go into an 8×8 baking pan. That means that if you cut the fudge into 2 inch squares when it’s finished cooling, you’ll have 16 servings.

You can cut the pieces into whatever sizes you’d like but the recipe and nutrition information are based on 16 servings of this delicious sweet treat!

You can easily double this recipe if you are sharing with friends, family, or coworkers. If you need more just use twice the ingredients and use a larger baking pan OR you can make two 8×8 sized pans!

Do I really need to line the pan with parchment:

I always make this note about my fudge recipes and it’s worth repeating. You do not have to line the pan if you aren’t worried about the way the fudge will look coming out of the pan. If you are using a glass pan you won’t have to worry about scratching the bottom either…

In my opinion it’s much easier and makes for a better looking final product if you line the pan with parchment. Then the block of fudge can be laid out and cut into even pieces when it’s cooled.
