Looking for a fun and different Easter dessert recipe? This easy Carrot Cake Fudge has a layer of carrot cake and cream cheese fudge, plus colorful 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 really want to make another batch of these Carrot Cheesecake Muffins tomorrow.
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 this year. Of course a quick search on Google brought up quite a few different recipes, but I didn't see any for the idea that I had swirling in my head. Gotta love that.
All the ones I saw had real carrots and pineapple in them, but that's not what I had in mind. 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 fudge.
Turns out, it works pretty well.
The cream cheese frosting on these Easy Carrot Cake Bars is one of my favorite parts to that cake. So I knew this Carrot Cake Fudge needed a layer of cream cheese fudge on top as well. I kind of have a thing for layered fudge.
Carrot Cake M&M's were the perfect decoration for each fudge square. I don't know if they are back in stock again or not though. The little carrot icing decorations would be so fun too.
One 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.
