Transcript:How to Make Microwave Fudge

Ingredients for Microwave Fudge

To make microwave fudge, you will need:
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14-oz can condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Grease an 8x8 Pan

Start by getting your pan ready: line an 8x8 pan with aluminum foil and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix Ingredients for Microwave Fudge

In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave it for one minute and then stir well. Now this stirring is actually the hardest part of the recipe, which should tell you how easy the recipe is. Stir until all of the chocolate and butter are melted, and the fudge is smooth.

It’s better the let the heat of the bowl gradually melt the chocolate rather than microwave it to death, but if your ingredients were cold you may need to microwave it for another 30 seconds or minute. Once everything is melted and smooth, add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the fudge is totally smooth and well-mixed.

Refrigerate and Cut the Fudge

Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Place the fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours.

Once the fudge is set, take it out of the pan, this is where your foil lining comes in handy. Peel the foil from the fudge and cut it into small squares.

This fudge is best at room temperature, when it's perfectly creamy and smooth and melts in your mouth. It's just about the perfect chocolate fudge, and the best part is it only takes about five minutes' worth of work!
