Red Velvet Cake Batter Fudge

If you like cake and you like fudge, you have to try making Cake Batter Fudge.  One of the coolest things about this recipe is that you can change the flavor of the cake mix you use to make many different kinds of fudge.  Today I decided to make it with Red Velvet Cake mix.

In a microwave safe bowl, mix 1 cup of cake mix with 1 cup of confectioners sugar.

Add 1/4 cup butter, cut up, and 1/4 cup of milk to the bowl.  DO NOT MIX…yet.

Microwave cake mix, confectioners sugar, butter and milk for two minutes.

Stir immediately until completely combined.

Add 1/4 cup sprinkles and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Fold in gently as to keep sprinkle from bleeding into cake mix.

Spread mixture into a greased pan and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Cut into pieces and enjoy.

Cake Batter Fudge

1 C cake mix of your choice
1 C confectioners sugar
1/4 C butter, cut into small squares
1/4 C milk
1/4 C chocolate chips (or white chocolate, butterscotch, cinnamon. Make it go with your cake mix choice)
1/4 C sprinkles


  1. Mix cake mix and confectioner’s sugar in a microwave safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely mixed. Add sprinkles and chocolate chips. Do not over mix as sprinkle color may bleed.
  3. Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut into squares and enjoy.

This makes on 6″ x 6″ container, or double for an 8″ x 8″ pan.

Note: If the batter comes out too runny, stir in 1 tsp of sugar or cake mix at a time until stiff. If too thick, slowly add 1/2 tsp of milk at a time. The batter is supposed to be thick.
