It’s been way too long since I posted a Funfetti recipe! I looked it up. It’s been over a month. And I haven’t made any fudge since Christmas!

So, yeah. This cake batter fudge was absolutely necessary.

Especially because I’m a fudge-all-year-round kinda girl. I L-O-V-E fudge.

I know making fudge can be kind of intimidating. But no need to worry when you’re here. On Something Swanky, we pretty much exclusively adhere to only shortcut fudge-making methods.

Not that I mind using a candy thermometer here or there. But when it comes to fudge, I just feel like there are so many really, really good EASY fudge-making methods, that I feel like any kind of complicated recipe is just totally unnecessary.

This recipe for cake mix fudge was really popular a few years ago, but I never got around to it for some reason. It’s always been nagging at me in the back of my mind, and I’m so thrilled that I finally tried it! It is insanely easy and SO good.

And by easy, I mean c-r-a-z-y easy. Like… melt some butter, mix some stuff, and pop it in the fridge. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

Just be sure to be gentle when you mix in the sprinkles, and don’t add them until the very end! Sprinkles tend to bleed their colors in warm mixtures, which can look kind of messy in this fudge. Still tastes good though, so no worries if yours bleed a little bit 😋.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by lining it with parchment paper or foil.

Add the milk and the butter, but do not mix. Microwave for 2 minutes.

Remove and stir until butter is melted, and mixture is thick and smooth. Gently fold in the sprinkles.
