Tasty Tuesday {cake batter white chocolate sprinkle fudge}

Okay, so I know I promised last week that I’d share a recipe for gluten and dairy free coconutella cookies, but when the time came to bake {while my little unwell Bubba was asleep} I discovered that someone in our house had eaten the nutella. I wonder who that could possibly have been? Uh oh mumma!

What else could I make? A quick scan of the pantry contents and I wondered whether or not I should share this recipe. I don’t remember exactly where I saw this the first time, and I’ve tried really hard to forget it. Maybe sharing it will get it out of my head {and belly} and into yours instead.

Warning: this is insanely sweet; insanely easy; and insanely addictive. So, you know, when you’re crippled with a crushing sugar headache but thinking you might have just. one. more. piece. … don’t blame me. I warned you!

What do you need?
1 packet of vanilla cake mix {I used a gluten-free one}
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 cup of white chocolate chips {or chopped white cooking chocolate}
1/4 cup butter, chopped roughly {1 stick for my US friends}
1/4 cup milk
2/3 cup sprinkles

And now what do I do with it?
Line a slice pan with baking paper. Mix your cake mix and powdered sugar in a microwave proof bowl so they’re well blended. Sprinkle your butter around and pour the milk over the top. Don’t stir it.

Microwave for 2 minutes. It will look like it’s started to cook, and you need to do the next bit really quickly. Mix through the chocolate and then gently stir through the sprinkles. Don’t over-stir them or the colour will likely bleed.

Press the mixture into the pan and put it in the fridge.

Then leave it overnight to set. Yes, I said overnight. Okay, okay, I know it will be ready in a few hours, but promise me you will leave it a little longer.

Cut it into small squares. Because, well … extreme sugar content. And that way you’ll be able to have another one. And another one. Because they’re only small pieces.

Aren’t they?

Oh, and ps. If you’re taking a photo of your mixture from above, maybe don’t drop your phone in the sprinkles. Or this might happen.

    That’s one of those recipes you mix together and go share with your co-workers, so you can have some but not all. LOL

    1. Which is exactly what I did today. And they were very happy about it!

  2. I never heard of the words “too” and “sweet” being used together. There’s no such thing!
