Valentine’s Day Red Hot Fudge Ingredients

  • 3 cups of white chocolate chips: The base of our fudge, providing a creamy and smooth texture.
  • 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk: Adds sweetness and helps in achieving the perfect fudge consistency.
  • ¾ cup of marshmallow cream: For that extra gooeyness and soft texture.
  • 1 cup of crushed red hot candies: The star ingredient that gives this fudge its unique spicy kick and vibrant color.
  • 36 cinnamon jelly hearts: For garnishing, adding an extra layer of cinnamon flavor and a festive look.

Directions

  1. Prepare the Pan: Line an 8×8 pan with foil for easy removal of the fudge once set.
  2. Melting the Base: In a large saucepan, combine the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low-medium, stirring until melted and creamy.
  3. Adding Flavors: Incorporate the marshmallow cream and crushed red hots. Continue stirring until everything is well combined and the fudge turns a reddish-pink hue.
  4. Setting the Fudge: Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before strategically placing the cinnamon jelly hearts on top.
  5. Cooling Down: Let the fudge set until it’s completely cooled and hardened. Then, cut it into 36 squares.

Notes

  • Candy Crushing Tip: Avoid using a plastic bag and wooden spoon to crush the red hots, as they can be quite tough. A food processor works best for a mix of fine dust and candy bits.
  • Storage: Keep the fudge in a tightly sealed container to maintain its freshness.
