Looking for a fun and different Easter dessert recipe? This Carrot Cake Fudge has a layer of cream cheese frosting fudge and fun M&M candies on top.
When I start on a flavor, I tend to run it into the ground. Carrot Cake is my choice of flavor right now. On Sunday I shared these Carrot Cake Magic Bars, today it is fudge, and I still have one more recipe in the works. I will wait until next week to share that one. There were a few other ideas I thought about making, but I will add those to my list for next year.
For some reason I had this strange desire to make carrot cake fudge. Of course a quick search on google brought up quite a few different recipes, but I didn’t see any for the idea I had swirling in my head. Gotta love that 🙂 All the ones I saw had real carrots and pineapple in them…that just didn’t sound very good to me for fudge. I had one carrot cake mix left in my cupboard, so I decided to experiment and see if a cake mix can be added to hot fudge. Turns out, it works pretty well.
I like my carrot cake to have a generous topping of cream cheese frosting, so I decided the Carrot Cake Fudge needed a layer of cream cheese fudge on top as well. I kind of have a thing for layered fudge 🙂 The Carrot Cake M&M’s were the perfect decoration for each fudge square. So far the only place I have seen these M&M’s is Walmart. I have also heard of some readers buying them from Amazon if you really want this fun flavor.
One great thing about this fudge is that it sets up a little faster than some of the other ones I have made before. I’m not always the most patient when I am waiting to munch on a new creation.
Now I need to find someone who needs fudge…because I also have snacking issues and can’t be trusted around any fudge.
