Cake Batter White Chocolate Fudge

cake batter fudge-2

If you follow Sally’s Baking Addiction on facebook, you may remember me posting about this fudge last week. I’m a new featured publisher for the network and this fudge was my first entry, so I shared it on my facebook page. It was so popular, made my pictures and recipe into a short video!

I made this fudge for a few celebratory reasons. Not only was I celebrating my debut on, but it is my birthday this weekend!This fudge is so easy to make. 5 minutes of prep, 1 hour of chilling, and you’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.

Life…is just better with sprinkles.

I made this fudge with both yellow cake mix and white cake mix. Both versions are equally as tasty. The yellow version (above) has more of a yellowish tint and the white version (below) is purely white. I love them both!

This no-bake fudge, full of cake batter flavor, is so easy and delicious, you’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 8×8 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. This is genius! I am in love with eating raw cake batter, so this looks like the perfect alternative to avoid getting sick. They would make a perfect addition to a birthday party dessert table and seem so simple! Thank for sharing.

    1. Natalie – i love love love cake batter. Buttttttttttt I need to come to terms with reality and accept I can’t lick the entire bowl! And yes, this fudge is perfect for a birthday dessert 😀

  4. This is such a wonderful idea!! You aren’t alone — I get bored by regular chocolate fudge too. I never would’ve thought to make a cake batter version! So excited to try this out. Have a wonderful birthday weekend!

  5. Made these last night and my husband and his co workers are going gaga over them. The time it took was so short my husband was like “I thought you were baking tonight”. HA!

    1. Hi Rebekah! Soo glad to hear the fudge was a hit! I have made it twice in 3 weeks!! And I love the short “bake” time 😉

  6. What great and creative ideas! And yummy looking too..will have to try some of them.
    thanks for the ideas. Cindy

  7. these were so good!! big hit in my house but instead of yellow or white cake i used funfettie wich comes with sprinkles anyways so no need to add them in (:

  8. Congrats on all your success. What an amazing achievement. I love the look of your fudge. It’s so pretty and it screams ‘celebration’. Have a great birthday!

  9. This looks sooo good. Going to try it this week. Using cake mix as a flavor has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I’m always looking for new flavors.

    1. Hey Shannon! Thank you! The mixing bowls are Zak! Designs. I got them here:–Assorted-Brights_p_934.html

      1. Thanks for the info on the mixing bowls. I made this fudge for my girls and they absolutely loved it. It didn’t last long around here. You are very talented, thank you for sharing your creations on this blog. I love to cook but I don’t create recipes myself.

      2. Thank you Shannon! When I made this fudge and brought it into work, it lasted 15 minutes. THAT’S IT! So glad your girls loved it too. 🙂

  10. Found the cake batter fudge on Pintrest… Just tried making them… They are delicious! I am in sugar heaven! I only let them cool for 45 mins-1 hr but they were still tough enough to be fudge. I got such a sugar rush! I am so doing these for thanksgiving! Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Kayla! SO wonderful to hear that! I’m glad you like it – it’s a crazy addicting little fudge to have around. Very sweet, indeed. Great addition to thanksgiving 🙂

  11. 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 🙂

    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!

  12. I really want to make this, but I don’t use a lot of cake mixes so I’m not sure how to read your directions; do you make the cake batter following the instructions on the box and then add the batter to your other ingredients listed, or do you use the just the powder/flour straight from the box? And also, can I substitute candy melts for chocolate chips?

    1. Yes, use the powder mix – do not make the batter as called for on the back of the box. And you may substitute chopped candy melts for the white chocolate chips here.

  13. 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!

  14. 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?


  15. I don’t have white chocolate chips, but I have plenty of white chocolate almond bark. Could I shave off some almond bark into peices and use that instead?

  16. This is my third time making the fudge- I absolutely love it! My friend also asked for the recipe after having some, and my family devours every piece in a day or two. Fantastic recipe! One of my favourites on this site so far.

  17. Now these look absolutely amazing!! Fudge is one of my favorite sweets! These definitely needs to be part of my life 🙂
