Chocolate Cake Batter Fudge - This easy fudge recipe is no bake and made with a box of cake mix. Each bite is rich and fudgy!


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.

    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.

    1. Why is my cake batter fudge so dry. I followed the recipe to exact. I tried it twice…the flavor was great the consistency was extremely dry

      1. I’m sorry to hear! What brand of cake mix did you use? Was it dry looking when you spread it in the baking pan?

    2. I used land o lakes honey butter to make ghiradelli chocolate chip cookies – it was there in my fridge & I was bored out of my mind with recipe staleness. It came out so so smooth it flowed ….. I never looked back.

      I bet this would be great with honey butter…

      Have you made peanutbutter fudge with cake mix

      1. No, I haven’t! I’d be intrigued to try it out though!

    4. Do you think this would work with a brownie mix? 

      1. I’ve never tried it so I’m not 100% sure! Now I’m intrigued though and wondering if it would work. I’ll test it out.

        1. Awesome! I’m gonna give it a whirl too! Thanks  

    5. Did you use salted butter or unsalted butter?

    6. Sue in Tampa, FL says:

      Let me start w saying that I am not a professional cook, nor a scientist. That said, this recipe concerns me greatly. I have read that flour that has not been heated or cooked through can hide deadly bacteria. Before making this recipe, I would cover and micro the cake mix only on HI power for 4+ mins to “bake” and heat it through well. Then, proceed with adding room temp milk and butter, and microwaving again as per recipe. Other than that, the recipe looks good AND easy!
