Easy Valentines Fudge
2 ½ cups cake mix (we recommend red velvet)
2 cups icing sugar
½ cup butter
¼ cup milk
2/3 cup chocolate chips
Heart-shaped sprinkles or icing to decorate.
Grab a square pan and line with baking paper.
Put cake mix, icing sugar, milk and butter into a bowl and pop in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Stir immediately until ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. Mix in chocolate chips whilst still warm so they melt slightly.
Pour mixture into your pan and tap pan on counter to ensure it is a nice even layer. Decorate with sprinkles quickly so they stick to your fudge whilst it’s still warm. Alternatively, wait until the fudge cools completely and pipe on icing.
Cover with glad wrap and put in the fridge for two hours. Cut into pieces then enjoy!
