  • Sprinkles and more for topping (those are similar to mine)

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 to Make Cake Batter Fudge

Full directions for this recipe are in the printable recipe card, featured at the bottom of the post.

Start by toasting your flour in the oven, if you want to use that method, as listed above. Or skip this step.

In a bowl heat, your sweetened condensed milk and white chips until melted.

Then add in your cake mix (if you didn’t toast in oven, ensure it reaches 160 degrees).

Add in your sprinkles and pour into an 8×8 pan.

Top with more sprinkles and store in the fridge for 2 hours to set before slicing and serving.

Storing Fudge

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.

Heating Flour - It is important to cook your flour. Otherwise, you can get sick eating the fudge without treating the flour.

Sprinkles - You are welcome to use any brand or style of sprinkles you want. Some brands of sprinkles I have found do break down a bit and bleed. Others seem to hold up well. So just watch the style you use, and fingers crossed they work well.

Pan - I recommend lining your pan with parchment paper or wax paper. This will help prevent your fudge from sticking into the pan.

Freezing Fudge - You can freeze your fudge if you don't want eat it all right away. Freeze in an airtight container for 3-4 months.

Can I use a different flavor cake mix?

You could use white, yellow or a funfetti. Those are the ones I would recommend. But even a chocolate could work, it wouldn't show the sprinkles though.
