Your holiday treat list is not complete without a batch of fudge, or two, or three, or… I mean really, is there ever too much chocolate? Fudge used to be one of those scary things to make. There were as many stories of fudge failing as ruining the turkey. When it comes to fudge, I’m convinced people spread those rumors to keep the good stuff to themselves! If you need your fudge fix in a hurry, try this uber easy three ingredient microwave fudge.
Easy Microwave Fudge: Only three Ingredients!
What you need:
- 2 cups chocolate chips (12 oz)
- 1 can (12 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 cups pecans
- (optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.
Microwave on high stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate chips are melted. Do not over cook!
Add the pecans and vanilla if desired. I love to add whole pecans! I want to bite into the fudge and taste the nut–so good!
Spread into a parchment or wax paper lined 8×8 square pan and refrigerate until set, about two hours.
Remove the fudge from the pan and cut into desired portions. I like them big so no one sees me going back for more. 😉
Serve and enjoy! Easy Microwave Fudge is so simple your toddlers can make it and such a quick and easy addition to your holiday treats!
I have Dove dark chocolate eggs from Easter stashed in my freezer. Do you think I could use it for the fudge!
Hmm do you know how they melt? I haven’t baked with them before.
I will use this recipe immediately!!! It sounds like you could change it up a few(?) different ways. Vanilla chips, peanut butter chips, mint chips, etc. What a huge timesaver. Esther, I’m thrilled I clicked on your site. I’ll be following you with anticipation, seeing what other wonders are in your bag of tricks. I love the name of your blog!

sounds easy, good, and quick, things i like, love the recipe trying it today. more good, recipes please
Your grandmother, my mother, made perfect fudge every time–no fancy chocolate chips or microwave–just mix the cocoa and sugar and milk (I think) and cook to the right stage and beat till it isn’t shiny or something like that. That’s beat with a spoon. Well, I made it once and it came out perfect so I thought I was a pro. Then I tried again and it never got hard so we ate it with a spoon. Tried again and had to hit it with a hammer to break it into pieces. Yours sounds a lot easier, but I can’t imagine it could be any better! (Just as good, probably.)
Happy New Year!!
Praying all is well with you and yours….
Haven’t heard from you in awhile so just reaching out to touch base = )
Happy New Year! Thank you so much for asking. Yes, all is well, but I did take an extended blogging break for the holidays. Nothing like having a daughter home from college for the first time to make one put work aside. 🙂 I hope you are well too!!
Grateful to hear that all is well, Esther!
Hoping that your family enjoyed a blessed time celebrating the holidays together, and that you created lots of special memories to treasure = )
