Y’all are going to love this three ingredient 5 minute fudge microwave recipe. It’s a great recipe for the holidays and is an easy and quick dessert that’s perfect for Christmas. And, it’s a sweetened condensed milk fudge recipe.
How Do You Make Homemade Fudge?
I was chatting with a good friend the other day and she shared this recipe. She cooks a lot on the weekend (and for parties), and always has the tastiest food.
And, I am excited to share her fudge recipe with you. In the midst of the holiday chaos, this is a great recipe that is microwavable and takes 5 minutes to make, so you have the time to go do other things.
Not only is this homemade fudge recipe easy, it is also a very versatile microwave chocolate fudge recipe. At its core, only needs three ingredients, but you can add other items to change it around to make what you love.
I added Oreos, but you can add Reese’s Pieces, M&M’s, or just about any type of treat you can think of. You can also use chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, or even butterscotch chips for the base of the recipe.
Add the chips to the bowl.
For this recipe, I used white chocolate chips.
And now, the best part. Wait for it…
Add a can of sweetened condensed milk.
Yes, yes, it is the best tasting thing on this planet. Between me and the kids, we are going to get every drop out of that can. It’s like a river of happiness.
Ok, back to the recipe…
Give it a stir and put the bowl into the microwave for 1 minute.
Take it out and stir. The more you stir, the more it melts.
Add the vanilla and stir.
If you’ve got a great microwave, you might be done.
My microwave isn’t the best, and I needed about 10 seconds more.
If you do need more time, microwave it in 10 second increments, and give it a good stir after each 10 seconds, because the chips will continue to melt when you stir.
Add the cookies.
This is the part where you can have some fun with your ingredients. My kids love Oreo cookies, so I crushed up about 10 cookies and poured them into the batter.
You can add broken up Heath bars, crushed peppermint candy, Red Hots (wouldn’t that be different and fun?), and the list goes on.
Stir the crushed sandwich cookies into the chocolate mixture. You’ll need to be a little quick in all of this so the fudge doesn’t harden while you’re in the midst of pouring it into the pan.
I used some tinfoil to keep things a little neater and easy to clean up, but you don’t have to. You can spray the pan with some non-stick spray.
To top things off, I crumbled up about six more sandwich cookies and sprinkled them on the top to look pretty.
Stick the fudge in the refrigerator for about two hours to completely firm up. That’s it! You’re done. Don’t you love easy?
