Make this rich and creamy heart-shaped red velvet cake batter fudge for a delicious no-bake dessert for Valentine’s Day.
This red velvet cake batter fudge is not only decadent, but it’s also super quick to make! My 24 yo daughter, Amanda, is a huge red velvet fan.
Whenever I ask her what she wants for dessert for any holiday, she always answers “anything red velvet”.
For Valentine’s Day I thought it would be fun to make a heart-shaped dessert for Amanda and her boyfriend. Of course, the flavor had to be red velvet!

Ingredients For Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge
- Red Velvet Cake Mix – 1 1/2 cups – I used Dunkin Hines
- 14 oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 cups Melting Wafers – I used pink
- Butter – 2 tbl
- 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Sprinkles – if desired
How To Make Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge
Start by heating the sweetened condensed milk until hot. You don’t want it to be boiling, so as soon as it starts to bubble, add the butter.
Then slowly whisk in the red velvet cake mix and vanilla. Mix until the cake mix dissolves.
Next up, add the melting wafers. You can also use chocolate chips, but I had these pink wafers in my pantry, so I decided to use those.
Now, an 8″ square pan is the best pan to use, but my lovely daughter seemed to “borrow” my square pans. So I used a round pan.
As I planned to use a heart-shaped cookie cutter, it really didn’t make a difference.
How cute is this cookie cutter? I found a set of vintage cookie cutters at a thrift store years ago. The detail came out pretty good considering fudge is not always easy to work with.
Simply push the cookie cutter down into the fudge and use a knife to cut it to the bottom. I love the arrow through the heart!
Use a mini spatula to lift the fudge out. You can add sprinkles if you want.
That’s all there is to it. A simple, but delicious red velvet cake batter fudge recipe, with only about 10 minutes of prep time.
