Easy Cake Batter Fudge

Cake batter is such a great flavor. I love cake and it’s totally fun when that flavor makes an appearance in non-cake items. Our favorite is cake batter ice cream. We have a shop here in town that’s open for a few hours a day during tourist season. After a morning of garden work and chores we like to treat ourselves to a little scoop of ice cream once in a while; cake batter gets chosen more times than not.

This cake batter fudge is just as fun as it sounds, and it’s super easy; no candy thermometer needed! You’ll love all the sprinkles and how festive it looks. This is a great little treat to make and take to friends for their birthday because it’s so easy and doesn’t make an enormous batch.

This cake batter fudge is just as fun as it sounds, and it’s super easy! No candy thermometer needed! The perfect, simple treat to take to birthday parties.



  • 2 cups white cake mix with sprinkles included (sometimes called Birthday cake or Funfetti on the box)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles


  1. Spray an 8 by 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray and set side.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl add the cake mix and the powdered sugar and whisk to combine. Add all of the butter and the milk to the bowl but do not stir it in. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Take the bowl out of the microwave and add the chocolate chips. Then stir stir everything in the bowl together. The mixture will be very thick. Stir until there is no powder left and the chocolate chips melt.
  3. Spread the warm mixture evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan. Use your hands or the bottom of a measuring cup to press and smooth the top down. While the mixture is still warm add the sprinkles to the top and press them lightly into the surface of the fudge so that they stick.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving. Store any left overs covered in the fridge.

Hope you have a great day! I have an awful head cold (and so does the baby and the three-year-old) and 3 bushels of corn to put in the freezer. September isn’t the best month to be sick. So much to do! Wish me luck…

    Ohhhh my! I am a diabetic and can feel my blood sugars rising just by looking at the pictures! 🙂 I am wondering can this be frozen so that I could MAYBE have one small piece every few weeks? That is the problem being single and diabetic. Make something for dessert, and it has to be small so that either it does not go bad quickly, or that you can freeze most of it for later!

    But it looks SO yummy! sigh…

      Sorry to reply to my own comment but wanted to report how this came out. It was beyond easy!!! Didn’t have white cake with sprinkles so used a white cake mix which my 3 year old grandson kind of put way too many sprinkles in! Didn’t have white chocolate chips so we used Andes Candies peppermint chips. Pink fudge! Same grandson got to choose sprinkles for the fudge once I had it in the pan and smoothed out. He choose purple and yellow sanding sugars. What can I say? He’s a genius!

      Definitely a keeper recipe. Easy to make, fun for kids, doesn’t heat up the kitchen and it’s so tasty too. Thanks Melissa for posting this one!

    HI! I know this is a really late comment but these look amazing! I hope you see this. My only question is, can you just use any type of milk or is there a specific type that works? ex. Condensed milk, Half and half…
