Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge-so easy to make and even better to eat!

Red Velvet Cake. The gorgeous deep red color draws you in. Every time I see a photo of one (or even better, see one in person) I drool a little. The contrast between the deep red cake and the white cream cheese frosting, just fabulous!

Then you get into the taste. I have to confess. I never had Red Velvet cake as a child. It was the color. A Blood red. And no one ever bothered to tell me it was a chocolate flavored cake. I had no idea. Seriously. It wasn’t until I made my own Red Velvet Cake for my daughter’s birthday and tasted the batter.

Pure heaven. I’ll share that recipe with you soon, I promise.

Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge-so easy to make and even better to eat!


When we first made Cake Batter Fudge, the kids went crazy. They loved it and started coming up with all the great flavors that could be made. Pretty much if there’s a cake mix flavor for it, you can turn it into fudge. There is a little adjusting for each flavor involved but the result is..well you can see the results, gorgeous! And tastes just like the cake, but in fudge form.

  1. What I like about it is the addition of white chocolate chips! What a great way to add sweetness and also harden up the texture!

  2. Love red velvet! I also didn’t have it till I was an adult, yum ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Joan, my daughter loves two things – pumpkin and red velvet! She will absolutely flip for this! It looks amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe and pinning! Have a happy Thursday!

  4. WOW! I love fudge & I love red velvet…, this is the perfect combo!! This will be so great during the holidays!

  5. Red velvet is so yummy – I bet this fudge rocks! The red color is perfect for Christmas too and I love those sprinkles – like snow ๐Ÿ™‚ So festive! Pinned!

  6. that is some gorgeous fudge Joan! I love red velvet anything. I’ve never made fudge, but I think I may just have to try this

  7. Oh. WOW. This would steal the show on any dessert buffet. Looks like a “Pinner” to me!

    • Sheila Galando says:

      Din not care for this at all. Although it did not taste all that bad, the excess butter rose to the top and it was greasy. The chocolate chips did not melt and had to work hard to get them to mix in. I would not make this again, it was almost like eating a sugar cube.

  8. This looks SO GOOD! Pinned …and headed over to your Nutter Butter PB Chocolate Bark and pinned that yumminess too! Thanks for sharing more “sweet” recipes! There’s always something amazingly delicious going on here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I was googling this recipe and came across another fudge that was made differently..but has cream cheese frosting! I am gonna make your recipe and try her frosting on top and see how it works. I just think red velvet needs cream cheese frosting! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Ginger Lounsbury says:

    I don’t use or own a microwave. Have a conventional oven recipe ? Also:hubby is diabetic,so often bake using AGAVE NECTAR in place of reg. sugar – any help there ? Thank you

  11. this fudge is so pretty Joan! I saw it on Facebook today!

  12. I made this last week for a party and it was a HUGE hit! Everybody was asking me for the recipe so I directed them to your site. I only wish I could have passed it off as my own creation ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. I wonder if you could make cream cheese frosting, then swirl it through the fudge before refrigerating? That way, you’d get the cream cheese (that, for me, is a very important part of why red velvet is so delicious!) but you wouldn’t have to worry about it getting everywhere when you store, eat, or box it up for gifting. Just a thought, but I might try it.

  14. Hi there, looks and sounds delicious! I want to make some for Xmas presents. The cake mix, is it like a store bought one? If so do you add the wet ingrediens and do a batter? Or do you make it from scratch?.
    Thank you

  15. Hi Joan, This Red Velvet Fudge looks delicious, I’m going to make some for Christmas to give as gifts. (But I’m going to make two batches one to stay home with lol). ๐Ÿ™‚ I do have a question. Where did you get those sprinkles from? They are so cute. Also, someone else had asked about swirling a cream cheese frosting in with the red velvet batter. How do you think that would work? Just curious. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much and keep the sweets coming. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Joann, I got the sprinkles at either Michaels or Hobby Lobby (can’t remember which.) And you can certainly swirl some Cream Cheese frosting in for a gorgeous marbled effect! I wouldn’t use too much, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup.

  16. Merle Craner says:

    I saw this or a similar circulating on YouTube and decided to give it a go. Who doesn’t like fudge or Red Velvet cake? This is one of those scaled back Christmases with regard to holiday treats so the simplicity is quite appealing. I too have put my time in the kitchen, having raised 5 children, and possess above average culinary skills. No reflection on anyone’s personal tastes, but I find the end product somewhat disgusting; like eating dry cake mix right out of the box. The preservatives immediately come forward leaving a less than desirable after taste and the dryness screams for milk or whatever is handy. I think the addition of cream cheese would help but I’m not sure that would be enough. The up side is that no matter what it tastes like, if it’s loaded with sugar, grandkids will eat it.

  17. I am making Valentines Day treats for our local firefighters. Just tried to make this and it is absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for sharing! YUMMY!!!!!
