I love a good cake mix hack and this recipe is definitely that. With only a few ingredients, you’ll have whipped up a deliciously rich batch of fudge that brings sweetness to every bite. 

I discovered the simplicity of cake batter fudge when I made my Valentine’s Day Fudge years ago. It’s an extremely versatile recipe where you can swap out ingredients. 

The only “cooking” you need to do is two minutes in the microwave. No using the stovetop and risk burning a pan and no need for a candy thermometer. It’s seriously one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made.

  • Box of chocolate cake mix – Use whatever brand and flavor you like. My favorite is Betty Crocker’s Super Moist Devil’s Food Cake.
  • Powdered sugar
  • Butter – Don’t worry if it’s not softened. It’s going into the microwave.
  • Milk – I use 2% milk
  • Mini chocolate chips – Regular chocolate chips are fine, too.

How to Store

I recommend cutting the cake mix fudge into pieces at the two hour mark. Store the pieces in a plastic baggie, covered container or even a plate with some plastic wrap on top.

Store your fudge at room temperature. It’s best enjoyed within the first 3 days although we have kept it longer and it was fine.

Can you freeze cake batter fudge

Yes! Store the fudge in freezer safe containers for up to three months. 

If you’re storing the fudge in layers in a container, put a piece of parchment paper in between the layers of fudge.
