Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge

When I think of celebrations I usually think of something sweet; something sugary and rich and quite sinful.  While everything that falls into these categories is delicious, all those recipes often take quite a bit of time, effort and energy to prepare.  This isn't necessary a bad thing unless you're in a time crunch.  A layer cake is great, but you also have to consider that one will take you anywhere from 2 1/2 - 3 hours to make.

Insert today's funfetti cake batter fudge recipe.  You get all the sugary goodness with just 5 ingredients that literally take 5 minutes to throw together.  And funfetti just screams "celebration" in my book.

This was my first time making fudge and I must say it was much easier than I thought.  I got a little impatient waiting for the fudge to set and tried to cut it too soon....word to the wise: patience is a virtue. If you try to rush this step your fudge won't be firm enough to cleanly cut and remove from the pan.  What you end up with is a gooey mess.  Albeit, a gooey mess that I enjoyed eating before returning the pan back to the fridge, but still.

Just make sure to give this stuff away ASAP unless you're okay with devouring the entire pan :)  It's delicious!

3/4 C sweetened condensed milk
1 (12oz) bag white chocolate chips
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 (1.75oz) bottle of sprinkles

Line 8x8 pan with foil or parchment paper.  Set aside.

Stir together condensed milk and white chocolate chips in large, microwave safe bowl.  Heat on high 2-3 minutes until white chocolate chips almost completely melted.  *Do not overheat or the mixture will burn!*

Remove bowl from microwave and whisk until smooth.  Use electric beaters if necessary.

Stir in vanilla and almond flavoring.  Allow mixture to slightly cool, 3-4 minutes.

Add 3/4 of bottle of sprinkles.  Gently stir, making sure not to over-mix, as this will cause the sprinkles to melt and turn the fudge a purple/brown color.

Pour fudge mixture into prepared pan and spread evenly.  Top with remaining sprinkles.

Place pan in fridge for 2-3 hours or until fudge is set.

Cut fudge into squares and serve.

*If you do not let the fudge completely set before cutting it, the fudge will not be firm enough to cleanly remove from pan.  Don't rush it!
