 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.

Prep Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 40 squares

Carrot Cake Fudge

Carrot Cake Fudge with a layer of Cream Cheese Fudge for a fun dessert on Easter Sunday.

Ingredients

Carrot Cake Fudge
4 Tablespoons butter
3 cups white chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.)
1 cup dry carrot cake mix
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
Cream Cheese Fudge
3/4 cup canned cream cheese frosting
1 cup white chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons marshmallow cream
1/2 cup Carrot Cake M&M candies

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a large sauce pan combine the butter, 3 cups white chips, and can of sweetened condensed milk. Stir over low heat until melted and smooth.
  2. Stir in the dry cake mix 1/4 cup at a time until thoroughly combined. Stir in the marshmallow cream. Keep stirring to keep the fudge from sticking on the bottom. Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  3. In another saucepan, melt the 1 cup of white chips over low heat. Stir in the cream cheese frosting and marshmallow cream when the chips are melted. Pour over the carrot cake layer and smooth out. Press the M&M's into the top. Chill 1 hour before cutting. Cut into approximately 40-50 squares.

Notes

If you can't find the carrot cake M&M's, you could top the fudge with sprinkles.

    You are purely a GENIUS! I made your Carrot Cake Magic Bars last night (because my UPS man delivered my M&Ms yesterday.) And I was on it…straight into the kitchen! And this fudge is calling my name as well! (=

    I didn’t even know there was such a thing as carrot cake fudge!! I had a craving for banana fudge but mine did NOT turn out as well as this heehee. Looks awesome Jocelyn and I love the layers – makes it more visually reminiscent of carrot cake :D

    Oh my heck! I need fudge! =o) First, carrot cake M&Ms? I am so stinkin’ envious of everyone who lives near Walmart right now. I haven’t heard of these but now I’m on a lookout. Not a huge carrot cake fan because it always sounded too healthy for me. I was really glad when I read that this doesn’t actually have chunks of carrots in it. That would have killed it for me =o) Genius! Love this! Thanks for another amazing fudge recipe.

    You are SO creative!!! My attempts at fudge don’t meet with success. So I will settle for yours. You know my address. :-)

    I can’t even imagine trying to measure out a half-cup of ooey gooey sticky marshmallow cream. Do you have any tips for us on the best and most accurate way to do that?! Thanks!!

      It really wasn’t that hard to get out of a measuring cup. You could spray your measuring cup with a light mist of baking spray to help remove it easily if you want.

    I can totally take these off your hands :) Your fudge always turns out so pretty and perfect! My man loves carrot cake and today is his birthday… I planned on trying to make him a carrot cake this weekend… may have to include this too!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      It was such a fun and crazy idea…I’m glad it worked out! And you need to get the M&M’s…totally worth it!!!

    I made this for a campus organization meeting today, and it was fantastic! I added a little green food coloring to the top layer to make it even more colorful and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing!

    I have to tell you that these are my new favorite obsession. I made this up last week and had to bag them all up to keep from inhaling the whole pan. They were so good. I can’t wait for Easter because they are ALL going in my Easter basket this year.

    I had to share with my readers and am sending them all your way for this yummy recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    I just made these tonight and they are delicious! I was able to find the Carrot Cake M & M’s at Wal-Mart. I only wish I would have pre-cut straight lines in the top of the fudge before I placed the M & M’s. They are kind of all over the place, but it tastes good, so who cares, right?
