Cake Batter White Chocolate Fudge

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!

Cake Batter White Chocolate Fudge

This no-bake fudge, full of cake batter flavor, is so easy and delicious, you’ll want to make it time and time again. Makes 36 squares. Store in the refrigerator.


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


  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.

XXL Buttery Soft Sugar Cookie would be perfect for celebrating a birthday too.

This cookie is over-the-top huge, soft, fluffy, and not hard like some sugar cookies out there.

It’s also chock-full of SPRINKLES! 🙂


Like today’s fudge, my Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondies are also full of cake batter flavor!

I love the HUGE Golden Oreo chunks in there!


My Loaded Sugar Cookie Bars are always a hit at parties!

I like to throw in any add-ins I have on hand – M&Ms, sprinkles, peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, you name it!




  1. Hi Sally, I do love sprinkles too! But there are a lot of sprinkles recipes on your blog, can I ask you which recipe do you like the most?

    thank you♥

  2. Hi Sally! i soooooo love your recipes. it looks so pretty and delicious and it’s so easy to follow. i wanna try your Cake Batter White Chocolate Fudge soon for my family but unfortunately, our microwave’s not working 🙁 it says in your directions that the cake mix together with the milk and butter should be placed in the microwave for about 2 minutes.. can i just heat in the stove instead of the microwave? will it work? or was my idea silly? 😛 I really really like to make it… thanks and looking forward to your other recipes :*

      1. I love this it’s a good desert me and my aunt mada it and it turned out pretty good 

  3. Sounds so easy! I only buy/use unsalted butter, so I’m wondering if I’m able to just add salt to the recipe. If so how much?

  4. This sounds delicious. Slightly confused though. If I buy a boxed cake mix do I make it up as the instructions on the box say or am I literally mixing the powder in with the other bits : )

    Please help I need to eat this xx

    1. I’d hang onto it if you happen to have a kitchen scale (and the space in your pantry). Most (“outside the box”) older cake mix recipes call for the old 18,25 ounce boxes of cake mix — impossible to find these days unless you want to spend a fortune on Amazon. This recipe is a dream for that sort of thing. You can use the leftover cake mix from this recipe, and augment the smaller contemporary boxes (which are usually 15-16+ ounces these days) to bring your amount back to the original 18 or so that is called for in so many cake mix recipes.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 😉 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!

  7. hi… I know this sounds drastic
    but what happens if I totally omit the sugar
    or maybe decrease

    why is it needed anyway

    isn’t it going to be toooo sugary with adding sugar?
    thank u!

    appreciate your reply

  8. 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?

  9. Love this recipe!! It tastes amazing! I use this as my base recipe for other flavors as well, carrot cake, red velvet, etc. Thanks!

  10. Great recipe, I saw a YouTuber make this and by the looks of their faces, it was really good haha. I tried it out last night and it ended up being really gooey? I don’t know what I did wrong. The only thing I changed was to use unsalted butter and no white chocolate. I fridged it for 2 hrs and it was still gooey and I left it overnight. I took it out and it was still gooey. What should I do the next time I make this? 

  11. Hi! 
    I made these for friends and family as Christmas gifts and everyone loves loves loves them! So easy and yummy. Thanks for the great recipe! I actually made four of your recipes for baked good boxes as Christmas gifts and seriously everything is amazing! I swear by your recipes to everyone I know 🙂

  12. hi. these look fab!
    does the fudge need to be kept in a fridge? or is in an airtight container in the cupboard ok? also how long will these last if you don’t freeze them?

  13. I have a question… I did half the recipe and when I heated it up for 2 mins it became kind of like dough, I added some more milk and it was softer but a consistency in which i could pick a bit up with my spatula… I was wondering Sally if this will work?

  14. I just recently made this fudge and have found it to be increadibly soft and sticky despite following the recipe to the T and reading through the comments before starting to see if there was anything to be wary of. I saw people had the same issue if they used margarine as a substitute for butter but I used genuine butter and still seem to be having the same issue. Is there anything else that you (or anyone else here) knows could cause this problem? It still tastes delightful but it is incredibly difficult to cut and handle.

  15. So I had to comment to let you know that this fudge is my go-to recipe for either something quick to bring to a party (they actually harden within the hour for me in my fridge) and for taking to events that I don’t feel like baking, baking. They’re SO good!

  16. Hello i am from the UK and wondered if you can add the recipe in grams etc like a lot of the other recipes.
    Thank you 

  17. I was wondering if there was a substitute for microwaving the ingredients?? Because my microwave reacts to butter badly and I don’t want to go through that again. Is it possible if I could put it over a double boiler instead???? And can I add something other than sprinkles such as more white chocolate chips instead??

  18. Hello! I’m from Mauritius. Can you please give the recipe in grams cause here in Mauritius it’s difficult to get a measuring cup . It looks very tasty and i wanted to try it since long but i couldn’t get the cups so that i can measure it.

  19. Can I use evaporated milk in place of the milk in your recipe? And if so how much? I’ve got a can of carnation I’m wanting to use. 

  20. Hi Sally,

    I’m so excited to give this a try! Could you replace the milk with a non dairy milk option such as cashew milk?
