Cake Batter White Chocolate Fudge

I made this fudge for my birthday this weekend. Woohoo! It’s so easy to make. 5 minutes of prep + 1 hour of chilling = 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.

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

  • Cuisine: American


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 8Γ—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.

  8. Hotly Spiced says:

    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!

    1. Thanks so much!

  9. Salted Carolyn says:

    Can you make this recipe by just heating things on the stove? I have no microwave…

    1. Definitely! I would melt the butter first and then add the cake mix in. Stir, then continue with the recipe instructions.

  10. 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. I am a cake batter fool! Love putting cake mix into recipes πŸ™‚

  11. Christina @Sweet Pea's Kitchen says:

    I LOVE cake batter recipes! This fudge sounds awesome! πŸ™‚

  12. Hi Sally! Can you tell me where the mixing bowls came from? Totally love them.

    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. πŸ™‚

  13. 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 πŸ™‚

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

  15. 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 πŸ™‚

    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!

  16. 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.

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

    1. glad to hear that Kristan! Yum πŸ™‚

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. soooo.. i don’t have white chocolate chips.. would maybe white icing work instead??

    1. Mara, icing will not work in this fudge recipe. Just leave out the white chocolate chips. Enjoy!

  21. 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?

    1. You sure can, Sarah! In fact, that sounds wonderful. I may have to try it. =)

  22. 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.

  23. Hi Sally! This recipe look delicious, but one question can you make it with chocolate cake mix?

    1. Hey Alexis! Yes, you can.

  24. Yvonne @ bitter baker says:

    Now these look absolutely amazing!! Fudge is one of my favorite sweets! These definitely needs to be part of my life πŸ™‚

  25. Rachel Cooks says:

    Yummy yum yum yum! I think I need this for my birthday too! Looks so good!

  26. Dawn Quintana says:

    I just made there, but realized I was outta confetti. I used Reese’s pieces instead! Awesome!! I love ur recipes!! Uve got me hooked!! Thanks Sally!

    1. That sounds good, Dawn! Glad you liked it!

  27. i would love to make these for my boys but i want to make sure i do it right how many oz or grams is it for the flour sugar and butter and how many mls for the milk? thankyou xx

    1. Hi Kelly – 115 grams for the butter, 60 ml for milk, 240 grams for powdered sugar, 120 grams for chocolate chips – and I am unsure about the cake mix. Use about half of the box.

  28. hallo ! i really want ot try this recipe but do not have a microwave – could it be done preoperly on the stovetop ?
    thanks !

    1. Hi Carla – yes, it can be made on the stovetop instead. Enjoy!
