I used to wonder how ice cream companies got their "cake batter ice cream" to taste so much like cake batter. It's uncanny! I still don't know what their
secret is, but I have figured out how to make cake batter-flavored candies: simply stir in a small amount of dry yellow cake mix
. That's it. It's not rocket science...but it does produce candies with the unmistakable taste of cake batter. You can use this technique in just about any candy with a mild flavor (think white chocolate as opposed to dark chocolate), and it works best with yellow cake mix, which tends to have the strongest stereotypical "cake batter" flavor.
I used this non-secret secret in my recipe for Cake Batter Fudge, a white chocolate-based fudge with a hint of sour cream and lots of fun cake batter flavor! If you get addicted to the cake batter taste, here are two more cake batter candy recipes to try:
