Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge
No bake, no box mix, yet replicates the taste of cake batter. This melt in your mouth Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge is delicious and has a wonderful textured crunch from the sprinkles.
Sprinkles make me happy. I love everything about them. The variety of happy colours, fun shapes, their sweet taste, the crunch, everything. They remind me of beautiful rainbows after a dull rainy day. Which is pretty ironic since they’re rainbow colours. Which then leads me onto glitter, but I won’t go there now!
I’ve been having the urge for a while to make funfetti anything. Funfetti box cake mixes aren’t available in the UK. It’s one of those US things (like Biscoff) that make us Brits jealous and so very desperate to visit the land of the free across that rather large pond.
We don’t get a lot of box mixes here and the ones we do get are terribly easy to make from scratch anyway. I’m not against box mixes, heck I’d use more if only there were decent ones for the right price (recession anyone?) but there’s just that added satisfaction for creating something myself.
Armed with my recipe, I went on a funfetti cake batter fudge mission in the kitchen. The recipe called for white chocolate chips. I had quite a few bars of white chocolate in which I considered using but off I went to the shops in search for white chocolate chips and when I get there I find both plain/dark chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips but no white chocolate chips. Meh! Maybe I could use some Milkybar buttons instead? (if you’re not familiar with Milkybar buttons, they’re the same as candy melts but just white chocolate) but they only came in 70g packages for rather a ridiculous amount and was so not worth buying quite a few of those. I just opted to use my white chocolate bars and got the giant man-baby to chop them up into small chunks for me. Works for me!
Overall, I was surprised with how easy they were to make and they are just delicious. I’m totally digging the crunch of the sprinkles among the smooth, melt-in-your-mouth fudge. It’s like a dirty little secret you just come across!
One word of advice, the fudge starts setting as soon as you remove from the microwave so make sure you have everything to hand and work quite quickly.
Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge Recipe
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 2-3 mins
Yield: 8in fudge
- ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk
- 12 oz white chocolate chips
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp almond extract
- rainbow sprinkles (nonpareils)
- Pour the condensed milk and white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 2-3 minutes, or until the white chocolate chips are almost completely melted. DO NOT OVERHEAT! Stir until completely blended, melted and smooth.
- Immediately add the vanilla and almond extract and combine thoroughly. Add a handful of sprinkles and fold in quickly. They will melt and make the mixture an awful muddy colour if stirred for too long.
- Transfer to an 8×8 inch aluminium foil-lined baking pan. Leave to set either in the refrigerator or at room temperature. If you live in a hot and humid climate, it’s preferable to allow to set in the refrigerator.
- Once set, cut into cubes. Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
- If stored in an airtight container, they should keep for 2 weeks.
- Prep time doesn’t include setting time which usually takes around 3 hours.
Totally off topic, but on Sunday, I went to cook my partner something. Popped it in the oven. Twenty oven beeping minutes later I returned with my oven mitts to grab it. Oven was stone cold. WTH? Tried a few things but no banana. The fan and grill are working fine on the oven so I assume the heating element has gone which sucks since my oven is only approx 3-4 yrs old. So until my oven is fixed, it’s no bake. Wahh!
Sparkling glitter and happy sprinkle topped smoochies,
