I'm finished!!! I made it through the semester! Hallelluja! We made it out alive! I'm just as surprised as you are haha
Well here today we are talking about cake batter...and fudge...and sprinkles.
All in one.
I'll let you have a minute to pick your tongue up off the floor...
Ok are we all back together now? Good good, yes you heard me right, a Funfetti-Cakebatter-Fudge.
Did I mention this recipe doesn't require a candy thermometer or even a stove.
I know, it literally can't get better than this...enough with the chit chat!
Show me the goods woman!!
There you have it, Cake Batter Fudge!!
The original is from a ingenious site found here, that bakes with boxed cake mix. Now THAT is my kind of baking...check it out!
Now Vanessa sent us this Pinstrosity and let's see what happened!
I think it looks like raw meat.
And that's exactly what Vanessa thought too...let's hear it from her!
"When I first came across the blog post with the recipe, I thought I could easily bake this since there was no oven involved and there are really only four required ingredients (not including the optional extra sprinkles). In my defense, I followed the recipe directions to a tee with the exception of just adding a 1/4 cup spoonful of butter instead of a broken up 1/2 stick of butter, I should add that I used Funfetti cake mix instead of white cake mix as well but in reading the blog post comments, it worked out great for those who also used Funfetti mix.
Where I started to go wrong was when I read that she added extra sprinkles but did not give an exact amount used. Since that was not disclosed, I thought I could kill two birds with one stone and throw in an entire container of Christmas sprinkles I had left over from our winter cookie decorating. As soon as I started mixing the batter and the sprinkles I slowly saw my white batter turn into what I have coined "raw beef red".
The picture above is the finished product after sitting idle in my refrigerator after two hours. It seems to taste great, the only exception is the texture is far from regular fudge considering the extra crisp the sprinkles have added. My husband's first comment was "This is good but really crunchy".
Even though it lacked in the messy department, my friends will not let me forget about my spaghetti sauce, raw beef looking fudge, nor will they let me add sprinkles to anything anymore."
There you have it!! Do not be liberal with sprinkles, they are like glitter, and we all know what we said about that...
Happy Friday Pinstrosipeeps!!! I am off to a day of hair appointments and one of my best friends Graduations! It's a good day!
