Red Velvet Fudge

Its New Year's Eve and as usual I'm staying in. Time for one final pig out on junk food and booze before those pesky New Year's resolutions to lose weight start all over again. I came across this recipe on Pinterest (feel free to add me!) and it sounded so easy & delicious that I just had to make it immediately. Theres only four ingredients and it only takes two minutes to cook. The longest part is waiting for it to set. Or you could just eat it straight from the bowl as fresh cake batter without the risk of getting Salmonella. Either way it makes for a fast scrummy snack. The recipe I found was for plain vanilla cake batter fudge but the only cake mix I had in my cupboards was this Duncan Hines Red Velvet one. Even better! Instant red velvet fudge. It tastes just like the cake & smells incredible. Its definitely not fudge in the traditional sense of the word. The recipe is quite similar to how you would make buttercream icing but rather than adding a bit of vanilla extract or cocoa powder you add in powdered cake mix. Its like one epic combo of cake, fudge & icing!

Original recipe found here.

1 cup cake mix of your choice
1 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

1) Put the cake mix & icing sugar into a microwavable bowl. Mix together.

2) Add the butter and milk but don't mix it up.

3) Put in the microwave on high for 2 minutes.

4) Take it out and mix it all together. Inhale the cakey goodness.

5) Line a cake tin and pour in the mixture. Top with sprinkles if you like. Put it in the fridge to set for at least an hour before cutting into chunks. Don't forget to lick the bowl!

Let me know if you decide to try this out. I love making easy confectionery like this. This is great quick sweet treat for when theres no other food left in the house! I'll be chowing down on these whilst watching the Hootenanny and downing Snowballs. Anyways I hope you all have a lovely time tonight no matter what you're up to and I'll see you all next year!
