Funfetti Fudge

Baking is dangerous when you live alone.  I love to bake.  Love with a capital L, people.  But when you live alone and have an entire sheet cake in your refrigerator, bad things can happen.

I've talked about this before on here.  You're probably all wondering why I don't learn my lesson and keep baking for special occasions.  Well, I'm wondering the same thing.  A few weeks ago, I made this fudge that I was planning on bringing it to some friends, but it ended up going into my refrigerator and belly.

I tried to trick myself by eating small pieces.  A small corner had just as much sugary sweetness as a larger piece, right?  Well, I did trick myself, but it was instead by going back for seconds.  And thirds.  Turns out that eating small pieces of fudge doesn't work when you eat several small pieces.  Also, large amounts of sugar right before bed leads to stomachaches and sugar hangovers.

You've been warned.

This fudge is sort of fantastic.  It's Gracie's cake batter fudge, but I renamed it for here.  Cake batter fudge is a fine name, but I can't resist good alliteration.  Hence...


I am literally smiling at that right now.  Alliteration rocks.

As does this fudge.

Funfetti Fudge


2 cups yellow cake mix
2 cups powdered sugar (or less if you want it less sweet)
1 stick butter
1/4 cup milk
rainbow sprinkles


Melt the butter.  Stir in the cake mix, sugar and milk until the batter is smooth.  Add the rainbow sprinkles and mix quickly.  Let the batter cool a bit to avoid coloring the fudge like I did.  If you don't mind that -- go to town with the mixing.  

Pour into a greased cake pan.  Chill for at least 2 hours.
