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.

How long does fudge need to chill before serving?

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving. Make sure to store any left overs covered in the fridge.

Do I need to use a candy thermometer for cake batter fudge?

Nope! Part of why I love this recipe-super simple and no candy thermometer needed.

  • 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. 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.

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…

Hey Melissa, can you tell me if I can do this with other cake mixes besides the white cake mix?

This looks so amazing! I just printed it out and will be making a batch in about half an hour.

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!

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…

I might have to try that with gluten free cake mix 🙂

Hi Melissa. How could I do this without using a microwave? X
