Adapted from: I’m Topsy Turvy & Baked from a Box
Nate and his best friend have been gone on a week long hunting trip to Missouri all week. Which has left me at home to fend for myself. I wish I could say that meant I’ve been making the healthiest meal choices while the boys were away, but I can not tell a lie. The first night, I definitely had a bowl of pecan pie ice cream with hard chocolate shell for dinner. Pregnant and home alone (one of my favorite movies btw), so sue me 🙂
There have been quite a few cake batter fudge recipes floating around Pinterest lately, and if there is one thing I miss being able to eat, it’s cookie dough. So giving the cake batter fudge seemed like a great way to satisfy the craving. But, don’t worry, you do not have to be a pregnant-junk-food-fanatic to give these a try!
The fudge takes literally 2 minutes in the microwave to whip up. Oh, and the 1 minute it takes you to measure and dump the ingredients in a bowl. I would suggest making these for a party, shower, or bringing them to work…because they are THAT easy to make and you will want to eat the whole batch!
I also bought a gingerbread cake mix to try the same recipe with, and instead of sprinkles I’ll be adding some roasted pecans. YUM. And then I want to try out a red velvet or a strawberry fudge. That is the beauty of cake mix recipes, the possibilities are endless!
1 box funfetti cake mix
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), cut into cubes
-Add cake mix and powdered sugar to a large microwave-safe bowl and mix together.
-Add the stick of butter and pour the milk into the cake/sugar mix.
-Microwave for 2 minutes
-Stir the mixture immediately until combined
-Pour mixture into a greased (I used baking spray) 9×9 glass dish
-Sprinkle with…you guessed it! SPRINKLES!
-Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (I let mine sit overnight).
-Cut into bite-sized pieces, share (optional), and enjoy!
