Halloween Cake Batter Fudge
Halloween lovers and fudgeaholics alike, you’re gonna love this Halloween Cake Batter Fudge! It’s bursting with cake batter flavor and decorated with spooky, fun Halloween sprinkles!
I had Monday off. Where I work, Columbus Day is a paid holiday. Want to know what I did on my day off? I worked my butt off! I cleaned, did yard work, rearranged some furniture and made this Halloween Cake Batter Fudge. Monday was a day full of hard labor compared to my desk job! I’m even a little sore from all of the work I did. But it was well worth it. My house is clean and neat, the flowerbed in my backyard looks great and I have delicious cake batter fudge to munch on. Last night I worked my butt off as well but it wasn’t doing any hard labor. I had to compile a draft for the current paper I am working on in the Business Writing class I am taking. It’s a group project and my part, besides being the leader of the group, is to compile the paper for this week’s assignment! Needless to say, I am totally looking forward to graduation in May.
Halloween Cake Batter Fudge
So about this recipe. I based this recipe off of Joan from Chocolate, Chocolate and More’s Cake Batter Fudge recipe. I added about 1/4 C of sweetened condensed milk to my recipe and I reduced the powdered sugar from 2 cups to 1 1/2 cups. Believe me, it was still rich and super sweet even after reducing the powdered sugar! I used a Pillsbury Halloween cake mix that already had sprinkles in it but they sorta melted while mixing everything together. So I used some Halloween sprinkles that I had on hand to add to the batter and top the fudge with. Doesn’t it look spooktacular? Haha, I love that silly word spooktacular. It’s so corny but I still think it’s pretty rad.
This recipe requires no baking (which is pretty awesome if you are living in a state that is still seeing temps in the 80s) and it only takes about 10 minutes to whip together. The most time you will spend on this recipe is doing something else while you wait for it to harden in the fridge. Enjoy the recipe!

This is so cute, I love the idea of changing up the sprinkles for different holidays!
Thank you, Joan! So glad I stumbled across your recipe! :)
I love anything Cake Batter!!! I use “Spooktacular” all the time!!!
That’s spooktacular! ;) Thanks for stopping by. I love cake batter too. I’ve actually made it before just so I could eat it!
This fudge looks wonderful! My kids would love it!!
Thank you, Nancy!
I hope the week slows down for you. Working in groups in just painful. But I am glad you have this amazing fudge to snack on!! Looks so good. Pinned!
Ha, me too, Zainab! Me too. I don’ think it will until Saturday or Sunday. And then it will just start all over again. I have another paper due in two weeks but I think it is max 1300 words so it shouldn’t be too hard to put together! But its all good! :) Hope you are enjoying your week.
Oh dang… if it was my day off, I’d be lounging around, hanging at a bar or catching up on my TV show. You work too hard Julie. But I do understand the gratification you get after cleaning and rearranging or gardening. It feels great to be in a clean home or see a beautiful looking flowerbed. Anyway, this fudge looks amazing! I love no-bake desserts, especially when it’s still scorching hot out. :) Love your gorgeous photos. Pinning for sure. Have a great rest of the week! :)
Word! You know that’s what I wanted to do. I really didn’t want to do housework but I forced myself to do it since I have been saying I was going to do a major cleaning for a few months now. :) Ken and I did end up going out for dinner Monday night. I said I was pooped and I didn’t want to cook. So we went and had some burgers and beers. Perfect ending to a busy day!
Thanks so much for the compliments. I love no baked desserts too. It is still pretty warm here in FL. The evenings have been nice but I just got back from taking the dog for a walk and it was still pretty warm outside. Come on cooler weather, get to FL!
Sounds like you are balancing a lot in your life right now! This fudge looks like a great treat for Halloween. Fun to change the sprinkle colors throughout the year to fit the holiday. What fun!
I sure am, Holly! It’s pretty crazy right now. I can’t wait until school is over with!
Hi Julie! This sounds so delish and I love how festive it is! This might be a great thing for me to whip up for our office Halloween dessert party! Great photos, as always! Pinning and sharing today — have a happy Thursday!
Thank you, Cindy! It is so easy to make and would be perfect for a party!
This is a cool idea, love the funfetti topped fudge. Looks pretty spookacular.
Take it easy,put your feet up and enjoy a cake.
Thank you, Ash! I really need to do that. I did get some relaxation time in last night. :) Hope you are having a good weekend!
This looks yummy! I do have a question….. we don’t have a microwave (I know, I know. We decided not to get one when we moved.) Would I melt the butter and heat up the milk first and then mix it into the dry ingredients?

Yum! And so easy :) I think I’ll have my 7 year old niece make it :)
Is there anything I can make instead of using cake mix from a box? I always prefer using homemade rather than a box! I’d love to make this recipe; it looks and sounds fab.
I’m not sure if this recipe would work with homemade cake mix. You could give it a try! If you try it out, let me know if it works! :)
Fabulous! We’re not quite so into Halloween on the UK but I’m going to raid those shops in search of Halloween sprinkles :)
