I've just come across Cake Batter Fudge for the first time, and I can't believe I haven't seen it before! I'm going to make some as soon as possible!

Two questions:

a) All the recipes I've found are made in the microwave. I don't have one, and I'm wondering: will making it on the stovetop work out fine, or be disastrous?

b) I actually have two boxes of cookie mix in my cupboard right now, chocolate chip and ginger... They were gifts, and I didn't particularly want to use them, so [and please forgive me if this question has an obvious answer]: could I use cookie mix instead of cake mix? What are the differences between cookie mix and cake mix?

[I know that fudge isn't baked, but I think the cake/cookie mix part is relevant to this comm. Mods, please delete this post if it's inappropriate.]

I don't think the answer is obvious, but I think since the cookie mixes were a gift, and the other ingredients (butter & milk) are pretty inexpensive, it might be worth the experiment! The worst that can happen is you'll end up with tasty cookie dough to snack on.

You're right! *smacks forehead* Now I feel like a dork for not just biting the bullet :/

Thank you!

I think that you could do this stove top,but I would just bring the butter and milk up to just under boiling and pour it into the cake mix/sugar blend. I would try this with cookies, only - possibly - consider skipping adding the extra sugar?

Either way, this looks very interesting, and I will give it a shot.

(my "pancake mix turned into cranberry and orange coffee cake" came out very well - I like repurposing things like that.)

I did what I suggested (I had a leftover dark chocolate fudge cake mix, and figured, why not?). I ended up having to add quite a bit more cake mix and powdered sugar, but it sure looks good, and the bit that I ate before pressing it into a plastic container (sandwich size worked perfectly) was tasty. I love raw cake batter, though, so YMMV.

Next, I will try a cookie dough to see how that works and report back! ;)

OMG, that sounds awesome!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! ^_^ Your experimentation is most welcome, thank you so much.

Having made this, I'll add my 3 cents. ;D

Stove top would probably work... I think I'd heat the milk and melt the butter separately. Slowly. You don't want either to boil or be extremely hot.

Also, the first time I did this, I didn't have quite enough leftover cake mix - I had about 2/3 or 3/4 cup and used powdered sugar to make up the difference and it actually tasted better than the second time when I followed the recipe. But, I could have been holding my mouth wrong the second time. LOL!

I'm not sure how the cookie mix would work...as cappyhead said, you may end up with cookie dough.

Ah! That's a good point! :)

LOL! Okay, it's good to know there's quite a bit of leeway with the recipe! xD

Not exactly worst-case-scenario, though, right? ;)

Thank you!

I'd make a peach crisp/cobbler with the ginger cookie mix and maybe make the chocolate chip into the base or a fruit pizza. As for the cake batter fudge, the stovetop is probably fine and I do what bastets_place said.

Cobbler! Pizza! OMG, I didn't think of that!

Thank you!!
