Cake batter fudge is a unique and fun dessert that is unlike any other fudge.

I will eat fudge any way I can get it, and this is such an easy recipe, so you can make it fast and have it ready to go in no time. Just plan for a little time to allow it to set up.

We eat a ton of fudge around here including peanut butter fudge, chocolate fudge, and Reese’s pieces peanut butter fudge which is always a huge hit.

Melted white chocolate in a saucepan

Melt everything together, while stirring occasionally. It smells so good, too, so if you’ve got teenagers, this is a great way to get them out of their room!

This cake mix makes fudge such a fun treat. It adds a familiar flavor to it and people have a bit of a tough time trying to figure out what the “different” ingredient is, so it’s fun to quiz them a little before letting them in on the secret.

I bought a box of super moist cake mix from the store to use for this recipe. It was one of the leading brands there at the grocery store.

Finally, add the sprinkles to the fudge and stir them in.

Funfetti fudge in a casserole dish

Pour the fudge into an 8″ x 8″ casserole dish lined with parchment paper. I also sprayed the parchment paper to make it easier to get the fudge out.

Sprinkle the remainder of the sprinkles on top and give it about two hours to set up.

You can stick it in the refrigerator and speed things up a little if you’re taking it to a party and don’t have a lot of time.

It’s also nice to have the parchment paper in the dish because you can just lift the fudge out and cut it easily when it sets up.
