I made this fudge for my birthday this weekend. Woohoo! It’s so easy to make. 5 minutes of prep + 1 hour of chilling = youโ€™re done. No oven, no mixer, no sweat, no fret! This cake batter fudge combines cake mix from a box, powdered sugar, butter, milk, white chocolate chips, and a ton of sprinkles.

You can use a box of any vanilla/white/butter/yellow cake mix. I used yellow cake mix for these photos.

This no-bake fudge, full of cake batter flavor, is so easy and delicious, youโ€™ll want to make it time and time again.


  • 2 cups + 2 Tablespoons Betty Crocker Supermoist white or yellow cake mix (or any brand white or yellow cake mix)
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • optional: 2/3 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Spray 8ร—8 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix together cake mix and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add milk and butter (do not stir them in) and microwave for 2 minutes. Once done, immediately begin mixing everything together until the butter is fully melted. The batter will be very thick. Fold in white chocolate and sprinkles. Stir gently. You do not want the sprinkles to leak their color.
  3. Spoon into prepared baking pan, making sure it is level and smooth at the top. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Cut into squares and enjoy. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. Delicious! Easiest recipe I’ve made in quite a long time.

  2. Yumm. Made it for a bday party last weekend. Just made with pumpkin spice kisses and a little pumpkin pie spice.

  3. This fudge is delicious!! My oldest son loves it so much that he rather have cake batter white chocolate fudge for his birthday than cake!! Thanks for the recipe, it’s a winner ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That is too funny Shari! I know, I love this fudge too – and I think your son may be onto something. think we can squeeze a candle in the fudge for a birthday? Haha! Happy New Year and thanks for letting me know you both loved it so much!

  4. I made this today except. I used red velvet cake instead. It turned out awesome!

    1. glad to hear that Kristan! Yum ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This looks so tasty! I’d like to send some fudge through the mail, and I’m just wondering how long you think this would last in a sealed air-tight container? Thanks!

    1. Hey Mikayla! I’d say about 5 days.

  6. Hi Sally, these look great and thinking about making for the Superbowl. Just wondering what kind of milk you used and if you think almond milk would work?


    1. Hey Megan! I actually used almond milk for this fudge – so yes, it works! Hope you enjoy!

  7. Hi Sally! This recipe looks delicious, as well as your chocolate chip cookie dough fudge! Would I, by chance, be able to use gluten free cake mix in these? If I did use it, would the texture be off? I’m wanting to make this for my teacher, who has Celiac’s Disease, which requires her to be gluten free. Thank you!

    1. I’ve never tried it before, but I’m sure GF mix will work just fine.

  8. I just made this and my fudge seemed incredibly soft (the same consistency as cookie dough). Is it supposed to be this way? Full disclosure, I did replace the butter with an equivalent amount of Shedd’s Spread (to reduce calories), I’m not sure if this would affect it.

    1. Yes, that would be why. You want full fat butter. Your fudge did not set up properly with buttery spread.

      1. Okay, that’s what I figured, but I’ll still eat it very quickly! Still delicious, and now I know better for next time. I guess some things just aren’t meant to be healthy (or at least less unhealthy)

  9. I made this with the white cake mix and it turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly as it was and it was so yummy and pretty. You really do have to be careful not to over stir or the color will start to run from the sprinkles. Next time I am going to refrigerate the sprinkles before adding the to the fudge. I think that may give you a little more stir time.

    Going to try making this gluten free next time with Bob’s Red Mill Vanilla Cake Mix. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

  10. I made this fudge for my co-workers who went crazy for it! WOW! The taste of this in INCREDIBLE! Especially if you like birthday cake ๐Ÿ˜‰ I used the white chocolate chips and so glad I did. I also couldn’t believe how easy this was to make. Thanks Sally! Yummo!

  11. These will be great for my daughter colorful birthday bash, it’s still 7 weeks away but I’d like to prep, do these freeze well?

    1. Yep! Up to 2-3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

  12. Hi! I was wondering if condensed milk could replace the milk in the recipe?

    1. That works, yes!

  13. Can I double this in a 13×9 pan? I am thinking it would make great favors for my son’s birthday party, and it would be nice not to have to make 2 separate 8×8 pans. Thanks!

    1. Yes, you can!

  14. I used a butter pecan cake mix and added some pecan pieces… AMAZING!!!

  15. Jeff Kaufman says:

    I make this on stove top all the time strawberry mix with diced fresh strawberries is great dont go to big on quantity of the berries and another awesome one is the reese’s peanut butter bar mix with 2/3 cup of pb chips instead of white chips and you will have the best pb fudge u have ever tasted just have some cold milk ready to wash it down cause this stuff is sweet like diabetic coma sweet
