Delicious Cake Batter Fudge
In our home we love fudge. Whether it is a classic fudge recipe to something unique and different like this white chocolate fudge. I love to serve up fudge all year round, and having a bright and colorful recipe like this one, fits great for spring, summer, and even a few different holidays.
When I warm up my chocolate I always go for the microwave. You can always get a double boiler and melt your chocolate that way. I find that microwave cake batter fudge is a lot quicker process but either way you melt the chocolate works.

Why You Shouldn’t Eat Raw Flour
You can either toast the cake mix in the oven before using it or grab a thermometer to ensure the cake mix gets heated to at least 160 degrees. Eating raw flour can make you very sick, so always ensuring it gets heated enough is a must. I just grab a thermometer to check.
How to Heat Flour in The Oven
Spread your flour out over a Silpat covered baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Then you are able to use the flour in recipes like edible cookie dough, and fudge recipes like this.

How Do You Make Fudge with Sweetened Condensed Milk
I personally reach for sweetened condensed milk over marshmallow because it gives you a really creamy consistency. As you can see from the recipe above, you heat with the chocolate chips, stir until melted, and then pour in the cake mix. It is truly one of the easiest fudge recipes to make.
Do You Put Fudge in The Fridge to Set
Your fudge needs to have that chill factor to help harden it up some, so it just doesn’t fall apart. Once you have it set up in the fridge, slice, serve or save. You can then leave your fudge at room temperature or place it back in the fridge. It is all about preference. Make sure to use an air-tight container, in whichever storage method you prefer.
Can You Freeze Fudge
I freeze fudge often, because it is rich, and with just my son and I eating it, it would go bad before we got it all eaten. So, just wrap up your fudge once made in aluminum foil. Then place the foil-wrapped fudge in a resealable freezer bag or freezer container, and freeze up to 3 months.
Thaw in the fridge or on the counter when you are ready to eat it. I always pre-slice it, so I can pull out a piece here and there to enjoy, and then toss the rest back in the freezer.
