Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge-so easy to make and even better to eat!
Red Velvet Cake. The gorgeous deep red color draws you in. Every time I see a photo of one (or even better, see one in person) I drool a little. The contrast between the deep red cake and the white cream cheese frosting, just fabulous!
Then you get into the taste. I have to confess. I never had Red Velvet cake as a child. It was the color. A Blood red. And no one ever bothered to tell me it was a chocolate flavored cake. I had no idea. Seriously. It wasn’t until I made my own Red Velvet Cake for my daughter’s birthday and tasted the batter.
Pure heaven. I’ll share that recipe with you soon, I promise.
When we first made Cake Batter Fudge, the kids went crazy. They loved it and started coming up with all the great flavors that could be made. Pretty much if there’s a cake mix flavor for it, you can turn it into fudge. There is a little adjusting for each flavor involved but the result is..well you can see the results, gorgeous! And tastes just like the cake, but in fudge form.
- 3 cups Red Velvet cake mix
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 10 tablespoons butter, cubed
- 5 tablespoons milk
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- Sprinkles for decorating
- Sift together cake mix and powdered sugar in a large microwaveable bowl. Add cubed butter and milk, no need to stir. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
- Immediately remove from microwave and stir until all blended and creamy. Stir in chocolate chips making sure they completely melt in. Press fudge into a lightly greased 8x8 pan, add sprinkles on top if using and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Cut into squares and enjoy.
