My tiny babies turn SIX in a couple of days, how can that possibly be?!
Life has changed so much in that time. Not least of all the fact that having a pair of twins has made me learn to do everything and anything more quickly. One handed nappy changing? Mastered. Filling the washing machine whilst overseeing homework? Nailed it.
Speeding up any and every recipe? YES! And so, I present you with Two Minute, Two Ingredient Microwave Fudge.
(Technically three ingredients if you include sprinkles, but they aren’t vital so what’s a sprinkle between friends?)
I make this at the end of term for teachers, either in the microwave or slow cooker (did you see my Cookies and Cream Slow Cooker Fudge?)
Homemade sweet treats make such a thoughtful gift, but even more so when they are secretly super easy. Shhhh, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.
I pack the pieces of Microwave Fudge, fresh from the fridge, into little bags like these cellophane bags (from Amazon). It adds a special something to make them feel like a real gift.
How do you make Microwave Fudge?
The basic recipe for this fudge is so simple, just chocolate and condensed milk. You can cook this in a microwave or a slow cooker. Of course it’s SO much quicker in a microwave though.
Just cook it for 30 seconds, two or 3 times, beat really well and pour into a lined dish. Refrigerate overnight and there you have it, delicious creamy microwave fudge.
How do you make fudge with condensed milk?
The basic ingredients for this fudge differ from traditional fudge as you’re not caramelising sugar to set the fudge. The chocolate sets the fudge and the condensed milk adds the sweetness and texture. Be sure to use condensed milk, not evaporated milk or ready made caramel.
How long can you keep homemade fudge?
There doesn’t seem to be any hard and fast rules on this, but I’ve kept it in the fridge for a week and it’s been absolutely fine. It will go really quite firm, so just let it soften a little before eating.
Tips for making this Microwave Fudge recipe:
- I used my favourite Callebaut chocolate for this recipe. This chocolate is just amazing, it melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe. When you buy it in bulk (1kg bags at a time) from Amazon it works out about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a different.
- Make sure that you do use baking paper (or parchment as it’s sometimes called) to line the tin. (I like this one, available on Amazon: Bacofoil Baking Parchment.)
- Use a fairly small dish to get a nice, deep fudge. (I like this one, available on Amazon: Masterclass 23cm Tin.)
- You can add extra flavourings if you’d like, like this gorgeous vanilla extract (it’s THE best!).
- I use milk chocolate in the fudge this time to give a really creamy flavour. You can use dark chocolate if you prefer or half and half works really well too.
- If you’d like to use white chocolate, you will need to use more to keep the fudge stable. 500g instead of 400g works well.
- This fudge is kept stable by being chilled. Keep it in the fridge until you need it and it you’re giving it away, suggest that the lucky recipients keep it chilled too.
