It’s been a long time since I posted one of my Cake Batter recipes.
Too long, in fact.
Luckily for all of us, the holidays are a perfect reason to remake some of our favorite treats with a festive twist. So here’s a re-post of my favorite Cake Batter Fudge recipe…only this time, Christmas-ized.
- 2 cups yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker) *
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 stick butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup red and/or green sprinkles (either add into mix or just top with)
- optional mix-ins: white chocolate chips, M&Ms, etc!
directions: Place cake mix and powdered sugar in a large bowl and combine. Pour in the milk, top with stick of butter, and microwave for 2 minutes. Immediately begin mixing everything together – the butter may not be fully melted but will as you continue mixing. Lastly, mix in the sprinkles, then pour fudge into a greased round cake pan (I topped mine with some extra sprinkles). Chill for at least 2 hours before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
* I’ve had some people say that their fudge didn’t harden well. The only thing I can think of that might make a difference is the brand of cake mix you use. A few commenters have also noted that Funfetti mix DOES NOT harden!
Although nothing can really beat good old traditional holiday cookies, Cake Batter Fudge is definitely a delicious (and simple) alternative until the baking begins…
What’s your favorite holiday treat?
