Microwave Fudge Recipes
Quick and Easy Success


If you love fudge as much as I do, you need a few microwave fudge recipes that you can whip up quickly in case of emergencies.

You know what I mean by emergency, don't you? You are having a sweet tooth attack and are just dying for some rich creamy chocolate fudge. Try these!

Be warned, though, that you may be tempted to overindulge. I whip up a batch of fudge and place it in the freezer - but that doesn't stop me. One of these days my teeth are going to get frostbite! :)

Fantasy Chocolate Fudge
My Favorite Microwave Fudge Recipe

chocolate microwave fudge recipes with nuts

It may be embarrassing to admit, but this microwave fudge recipe is my favorite fudge recipe.  I make it for Christmas, birthdays, or any time I have a fudge craving. 

It's often hard to locate marshmallow cream here in Australia, so I sometimes bring some from the USA when I visit there, or stock up on the rare occasions they make it available at my local grocery store.

  • 3/4 cup butter (or margarine, but I definitely prefer butter!)
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 12 ounce package of chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 7 ounce jar of marshmallow cream
  • (optional - nuts or peanut butter; I prefer the peanut butter)
  1. In a 4 quart microwave safe bowl heat the margarine on high for 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and evaporated milk; mix well. Microwave on high for 11 minutes, stirring every three minutes and scraping the bowl well.

  2. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

  3. Pour into lightly greased baking pan. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares.

When I make this recipe, I often make two batches.  The first batch is plain chocolate and the second batch contains peanut butter.  I usually use about a cup of peanut butter.

I have tried to double the recipe to save time.  Don't!!!  This is one of the microwave fudge recipes that does not double well.  It's better to just take the time to make a separate batch. 

If you want to try both flavors without making two batches, simply divide the fudge at the very last step.  Cut the amount of peanut butter down to suit your taste and the amount of chocolate peanut butter fudge you are making.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
