This fudge couldn’t be easier to make. Simply microwave the chocolate and milk together until the chocolate has mostly melted. Next, stir in chopped walnuts if you’d like and pour into a small dish.

Refrigerate the fudge for a hour to an hour and a half until it firms up a bit, slice into small squares and enjoy!

Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipes

You will only need 3 ounces of sweetened condensed milk for this recipe. You might like to use the rest of the milk in any of these ways…

  • Swap a spoonful of the milk into your coffee instead of milk and sugar.
  • Drizzle over sliced fruit.

Use the remaining milk in any of these recipes…

  1. Oh my word thank you so much!!! I love sweets but my family are not huge sweet eaters! I am so excited to have my own little portion to feed my craving for fudge!!! I just found your website but I am so in love with it already!!! Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!!!

  2. I have always stayed away from making fudge, because the idea intimidated me. But the minute I read 'microwave', I was sold! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This looks delicious! It caught my eye as I was browsing your site whilst my banana bread for one is cooking… oops! Hope your daughter feels better, I've just had an operation myself and recovery was hellish!

  4. thank you looking into this I have tried my own version I used 12 ounces of hot water I tea bag and let that steep then I added 1/3 cup of orange juice , I tablespoon of lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/8 of a teaspoon of cloves, and 1/8 of a teaspoon of ginger. It had a very strong clove taste so I think I need to cup back on the cloves. I also used honey instead of sugar. I just used that to my own taste. I hope you can help me out . Thank You

  5. I love nuts but I love raisins more in my fudge! I’ve also made fudge with almond or orange extract instead of vanilla. One may want a mint extract instead. Different flavors for different moods 🙂
