How Do I Make The Microwave Fudge?

  1. Add both bags of white chocolate chips to a medium-sized bowl. 
  2. Next, pour in the sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Microwave for one minute and stir the ingredients. If the chocolate needs to melt more, microwave in increments of 30 seconds, stirring in between. 
  4. Remove the peppermint candy from the wrappers and add to a large Ziplock bag. Break the peppermints into smaller pieces. 
  5. Add half of the peppermint candy to the bowl of melted chocolate and stir. 
  6. Pour into a greased 8″ x 8″ casserole dish. 
  7. Sprinkle the remaining peppermints on top. 
  8. Allow the fudge to set up for at least one hour. If you’re in a hurry, you can place the fudge recipe into the refrigerator. 

How To Make The Peppermint Fudge

Next, pour the sweetened condensed milk into the bowl with the chocolate chips. Microwave the chocolate fudge for about one minute and stir. 

TIP: The chocolate will continue to melt while you stir it, but if you think it still needs to melt a little more, microwave in increments of 30-seconds and stir in between. 

You really can’t ever go wrong with sweetened condensed milk. It’s such a delicious treat. Give this 5-Minute fudge a try if you like easy fudge recipes.
