Microwave Fudge Recipe

This fudge recipe is really just three simple ingredients, but with time and experimentation, the possibilities are endless. So for a quick and easy treat, you’re going to want to have these ingredients on hand.

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – this is basically milk with the water taken out and sugar added in.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – if you’re more of a dark chocolate person go for dark chocolate!
  • Walnuts – this is optional and can be switched out for a ton of different mix-ins and toppings.

How to Make Microwave Fudge

  1. Line 8×8 glass dish with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray lightly. Set aside.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, stir chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together and microwave in 30-second increments until smooth and completely melted. Stir in chopped walnuts. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top.
  3. Bring to room temperature {about 1 hour} before refrigerating. Once it’s pretty solid, remove from the pan using the foil and cut into squares. Serve and enjoy!

At room temperature, stored in an airtight container, fudge can last for one to two weeks. If you refrigerate it, it can extend the shelf life up to three weeks.

FudgeCustomize Your Fudge

Like previously said this delicious Microwave Fudge is super versatile! So here are some ideas to get you fudge ideas flowing.

Chocolate – you can change your chocolate source to be as bitter or sweet as you want. Try different chocolate to see what you like best, from dark to even white chocolate.

Mix-Ins – besides just a variety of nuts you can also mix in marshmallows, pretzels or how about a peanut butter swirl? YUM!

Flavorings – although this recipe doesn’t use any vanilla extract, you can play with different flavored extracts to up your fudge game. Imagine chocolate mint fudge or orange white chocolate.

Toppings – sprinkles are always a big hit for my kids, so why not include yours while making this easy fudge? Other topping ideas include different nuts, pretzels and to be more adventurous, try potato chips.

Freezing Fudge

Make this Microwave Fudge ahead of time and then freeze it! This is seriously the best fudge recipe and by freezing it you can have it whenever you want.

To freeze, make the fudge accordingly, refrigerate and slice. From here wrap the fudge tightly in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil and then finally place in a freezer bag. I know it’s a lot but no one wants freezer burn fudge.

      Sadly no that would not work since sweetened condensed milk is a VERY THICK VISCOUS LIQUID and almond milk is not. But maybe you could find or make a dairy free sweetened condensed milk.
