Birthday Cake Fudge is a fun, festive Disney inspired treat. Packed with cookies and marshmallow, this is one easy fudge recipe you can’t resist!
Why this Fudge is Best
I don’t know about you, but birthday cakes are the best. They don’t have to be elaborate, I prefer them without fondant, but I want them to be packed with flavor (and frosting).
Today’s fudge is so easy, you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it yet!
- No candy thermometer needed!
- Sets up in a few hours, but can be stored in the fridge for weeks!
- Soft and creamy with a crunch thanks to the cookies inside!
My ideal birthday menu would consist of some homemade dinner (chicken tetrazzini please), with a side of sweet potato casserole (yes it’s an odd combination), a batch of rice krispie treats, and today’s fudge!
Tips and Tricks
- Use the mini Nilla Wafers if you can find them. This will make cutting the fudge and not having too much “crumble” so much easier. If you can’t find the minis, I would break each cookie in half.
- Before you start melting your butter and cream mixture, get your other ingredients ready. First, add your white chocolate and marshmallow fluff to your mixing bowl so it’s ready to melt when you add the hot cream mixture over it. Second, line your 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Toss a few cookies (wait, that sounds wrong) into the bottom of the dish (don’t cover the bottom, but add a few cookies).
- GENTLY fold your remaining cookies and mini marshmallows into the fudge mixture. Do not overmix. Add a few sprinkles and quickly pour this into your prepared dish. Top it with MORE sprinkles (why not??)
