Awhile back, I saw this candy at the Dollar Store.
They were little cups that looked like mini peanut butter cups, but they were filled with cake batter flavored candy.
Obviously, this needed to happen in my life.
I decided not to buy them, because I had my hands full of fifty trillionty other things, like Andy Capp Hot Fries and cute drinking glasses (why is the Dollar Tree SO ADDICTING??), but I made a mental note to try to create the Cake Batter candy myself later on.
So when I was trying to think of something fun to make for my birthday week, I remembered these and decided to give them a whirl.
Don’t they look fun?
All you need are 5 ingredients, and THIS candy mold. The recipe makes about 4 dozen.
Preeeeeeety perfect for packaging up in cute bags and handing at a birthday party, if you ask me.
Or Valentines? Just throwing it out there.
These are so easy and so fun!! I hope you enjoy them.
Cake Batter Candy Cups
- 16 oz vanilla candy coating wafers or almond bark
- 1 cup dry Funfetti cake mix
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 of a 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 4 Tablespoons melted butter
1. In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk and melted butter until thoroughly mixed. You can use a wooden spoon, but I always end up using my hands. Cover with a damp paper towel to prevent mixture from drying.
2. Melt candy coating or almond bark according to package directions. Place a small amount in the bottom of each candy mold, enough to fill the mold about 1/3 of the way. Roll about a teaspoon of the cake batter candy into a ball and press into the candy mold. Spoon more melted candy on top and sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles. Place in the fridge to harden.
