Cake Batter Fudge-so easy to make and so good to eat!

Cake Batter Fudge-so easy to make and so good to eat!

I have to apologize right up front to whoever I got this recipe from. I don’t remember who you are. I’m so sorry.

Here’s what happened. My sweet stepdaughter loves finding things and then shares them to me on Facebook. Especially things she wants me to make.  Sweet, yummy, tempting treats. Usually if I want to make whatever it is, I’ll Pin it on Pinterest so I can find it later.

For whatever reason when little miss temptress shared that Cake Batter Fudge to me on FB, I didn’t pin it. I wrote down the recipe on a scrap of paper. Then it was a few weeks later, or maybe even a month later, that I got around to making it. Then another month until I decided to edit the photos and add the recipe to the blog.

So here’s the moral of the story.

When you see all those yummy photos floating around facebook that say “Hit Share to Save it to Your Wall” Go ahead and share it so your friends can all see the yummy treat you found but then you better do that second Option of “PIN IT FOR LATER!”

This fudge is so good, and so fast and easy, the girls can even whip up a batch any time they want. And I can tell you, if you’re looking for a little fun, change out the flavor of the cake mix. Oh the possibilities!

  1. Looks so yummy! I love fudge, but have never made it. What a fun recipe!

  2. I have so many things pin that I want to try and I know I’ll never find them! I guess I need a board titled MUST MAKE ASAP! This fudge would definitely go on that board!

    • I know exactly what you mean Tanya, I have a “must make recipes” board but something else always catches my eye and I forget to go back to it, lol

  3. So fun! I’m a sucker for sprinkles.

  4. Wow! I’m totally going to make a dairy free version of this. It looks amazing!

  5. Oh my goodness, Joan, to-die-for! And you are right, playing with different flavors would be so much fun! I’ll pin THIS!

  6. I love cake batter anything – this fudge looks awesome!

  7. This looks so good Joan! And I totally hear you. I always want to give the right credit where it’s due . . . but you know . . . sometimes things fall through the cracks 🙂

  8. Look at all those fudge recipes! I think I’ve died and gone to heaven! Will definitely have to try them! I love fudge! Eating it anyway!

  9. Well, this is a every interesting recipe! I want to try it! I should pin and share it right? 🙂

  10. um, yum! So easy too. It’s crazy, I’ve found that sometimes the quick fudge recipes are just as good as the “old fashion” kind.. and not much beats cake batter flavor!

  11. YUM! I’ve been wanting to try this fudge recipe for sometime now!
    Incidentally, this isn’t the first time I’ve seen it. Your recipe looks strikingly similar to Sally’s…it’s almost word for word:

    • Hi Rob, thanks for pointing my towards Sally’s version. Somehow I missed hers and I’m a big fan of her site. This fudge has definitely been making the rounds for the past few years. here’s a version from April of 2012 from Girl Meets Life.

    I made this last week and it went fast. Everyone loved it

  13. jessica von burg says:

    Also, i made some today and i used chocolate cake mix instead of white cake mix and it turned out even more delicious!!!

  14. Hi Joan! I came across your recipe on Pinterest the other day and decided to make my own version yesterday. I love it! I’ll be posting it on the blog tomorrow. Thanks for sharing such an easy, delicious recipe! 🙂

  15. I also would get soooo wonderful recipes I wanted to try and then would have trouble remembering them or finding them quickly. So, I started bookmarking the page on the ones that I want to try asap. It work’s great.

  16. I just finished this, but because I am on a diet right now I am unsure of how it tastes, but I am taking it to work so I can not wait to see the reaction.

    This looks soooo good. Do you know if it would work using a gluten free cake mix? I have celiac, so a regular Betty Crocker boxed mix would make me sick, but they do make gluten free cake mixes… they’re just expensive, so I don’t want to waste one if someone already knows using a gluten free mix won’t work!

    • Honestly, I have no idea, I’ve never used a gluten free mix but since you’re not baking this, just using the cake mix as a flavoring so to speak, it should work.

    • Try making your own gluten free cake mix. I googled it and found several recipes and have made yellow cake mix which worked great with another dessert recipe, so should work for this one.

  18. What does C stand for?

  19. These recipes look great but could you also add UK measurements/conversions please 🙂

  20. Made them with cashew milk and they are delicious, yet not helping me in my war on weight…Here’s a picture sans sprinkles:

  21. Does anyone have a conversion on this recipe not using packaged mix. The preservative give me a wicked headache, so I have been converting alot of quick recipes with homemade cake mix. Alot of them are made with the prepared mix, this one appears to use the dry mix..Any thoughts.

    Hi, what is powdered sugar?

  23. OSNAT HAREL says:


  24. Hi,
    I meant to say Joan not Trish

  25. Shared this on my Facebook page and pinned! Great recipe!

  26. Hi Joan!
    I have a question. For the cake mix box, should I use the whole box 16.5 oz (2 1/2) or should I just measure out the 16 oz (2 cups)?

  27. I am totally making this for my daughter’s bday party. Can you freeze this fudge?
    I am afraid the sprinkles might get moist and bleed during the thaw!

    • I wouldn’t recommend freezing it. it’ll stay fresh for about a week so just make ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

  28. I’ve made this many, many times before seeing this recipe. I wanted to add that I recommend using white cake mix vs yellow for more of a “cake batter” taste. The yellow cake mix gives it a strong vanilla taste, in my opinion. I discovered that when I ran out of white once upon a time. 🙂 This has always been a hit every time I’ve made it.

  29. I just made this with Devil’s Food cake mix and semi-sweet chocolate chips. It was so easy and came out great!

  30. I can’t wait to try these, I haven’t made fudge in years and my daughter mentions it every once in a while. I think I am going to surprise her and make these. *excited*

  31. Just a quick question — when you fold in the chocolate chips, are they supposed to melt completely? My mix didn’t seem to get hot enough with these instructions to melt them all the way…

  32. Being that I’m a man who enjoys desserts, this recipe is a very easy treat to make and enjoyable. Now you got me motivated to try your other recipes. Thanks.

  33. Do you have a recipe for Chocolate Fudgie No-Bakes?

  34. These look delicious! Thinking of making them for my little girl’s end of soccer season party. Was wondering about how many servings this recipe made? Thanks!

  35. Love this recipe! I tried another recipe that didn’t use white chocolate chips and it came out way too soft and greasy. This recipe was the perfect dense, fudgy consistency and tastes delicious.

  36. Should I use unsalted butter? Or can I use salted butter?

  37. Can you substitute premade icing for the white chcoolate chips?

  38. I know how hard you work on your products and your pictures.

    Someone on Etsy is claiming your product and pictures as their own:

  39. I don’t like white chocolate, can you taste the white choc. In the recipe?

    • For this recipe, your fudge will taste like the cake flavor you use not white chocolate.

      • Just curious, why add white chocolate chips?

        • actually, nevermind. I retried the recipe with the chips. You MUST use the chips! Or you’ll just get a gooey mess.

          Man, these are TOO good. I feel like I’m gonna get diabetes just from looking at them, they’re so rich and sweet and delicious!

  40. This sounds wonderful! Cake batter anything is always so much fun and you can never have too many sprinkles!

  41. Anyone use wax paper, non-stick foil or parchment paper instead of a greased pan? I hate the taste of cooking sprays and crisco so I’d prefer to line a pan instead…wondering if it would affect the consistency of the fudge? Can’t wait to make these, they look amazingly delicious! 🙂

    Made this today and my son and all his friends loves it. I find it a little to sweet thou. So my question being is could i maybe just put in one cup of powdered sugar or does it need 2 to set? x
