Birthday Cake Fudge - Confetti Fudge - Birthday Fudge

Image from the big "G" search engine since I haven't made these yet
I think it was probably about 7 months ago I first saw this recipe, scribbled it down and said, "Oh, I'll have to make that!"   I am pretty sure about 7,000 others did the same thing because apparently it hit the Pinterest boards and went insane on the net.  (I bailed from Pinterest about 8 months ago and haven't been back so I'm not really sure... LOL). 

As much as I have wanted to make these, I didn't get to because I never had a couple of the ingredients on hand.  Yellow cake mix (almost never, ever purchase), white chocolate chips and sometimes I do  have marshmallow fluff on hand but it's usually to make my favorite frosting/filling and gets used for that purpose and then I'm out again!

Well, my two daughters and I love white cake with white frosting and anything 'cake batter' related.  Seriously, I've posted previously about how I will eat white cake mix as a little snack!  LOVE IT.  But I love the batter more than the finished, baked cake.

When I saw this recipe and the images posted alllll over the internet I knew I had to try it.  I have it on my radar to make ASAP - meaning;  as soon as I buy a cake mix and marshmallow creme. 

Birthday Cake Fudge

3 c sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 (5oz) can evaporated milk
1 (7oz) jar Marshmallow Fluff
1 (12oz) bag white chocolate chips
1/4 cup yellow cake mix powder
1 tsp vanilla
blue food coloring (optional)
rainbow sprinkles (optional)

Grease/foil one 8" or 9" square baking pan.  Place the butter, sugar, and evaporated milk in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and let boil for a full 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add the marshmallow fluff, white chocolate chips, cake mix, and vanilla,.  Stir continuously until smooth.

Moving quickly, pour half of the fudge into a heatproof bowl and dye it a contrasting color.  Fill pan with colored fudge first, then the remaining white fudge on top, pulling a knife through to swirl. Cover top of fudge with sprinkles and let cool to room temp before storing in fridge for 2 hours to harden.
