Cake Fudge

Indulge in the joyous combination of rich chocolate and creamy vanilla with Birthday Cake Fudge. This delightful dessert features two distinct layers of fudge — one made with luscious semi-sweet chocolate and another with smooth white chocolate — both sprinkled with colorful confetti, making it perfect for birthdays or any celebratory occasion.


For the Chocolate Fudge Layer:
  • 1 1/2 cups (273g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 x 14oz can (198g) full-fat sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp marshmallow crème
For the White Fudge Layer:
  • 1 1/2 cups (273g) white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp (198g) full-fat sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp marshmallow crème
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp sprinkles, divided


  1. Prepare the Pan:
    • Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, ensuring there is an overhang on the sides for easy removal.
  2. Make the Chocolate Fudge Layer:
    • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and marshmallow crème. Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
    • Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula to form a smooth layer. Allow it to set slightly while you prepare the next layer.
  3. Make the White Fudge Layer:
    • Using the same or a new saucepan, combine the white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and marshmallow crème. Heat until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
    • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Gently fold in 1/3 cup of sprinkles, being careful not to over-stir to avoid the colors from bleeding.
    • Carefully pour the white chocolate mixture over the semi-set chocolate layer, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  4. Add Final Touches:
    • Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of sprinkles over the top of the white fudge layer for a festive look.
  5. Chill and Set:
    • Cover the pan with a lid or cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until the fudge is firm and fully set.
  6. Serve:
    • Once set, use the foil overhang to lift the fudge out of the pan. Remove the foil, and cut the fudge into 1-inch squares using a sharp knife. If the fudge is too stiff, let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before slicing.


  • Enhancing Layers: For those who love white chocolate, consider doubling the white chocolate layer to make it more prominent, creating a striking visual contrast.
  • Slicing: Use a sharp knife to cut the fudge cleanly. If necessary, heat the knife under hot water and dry it before slicing for even cleaner cuts.
  • Storage: Store the fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep it fresh and maintain its texture. It can also be frozen for longer storage.
