Too Easy Three Ingredient Fudge

I discovered something disturbing this weekend.  I’m not really sure that I should I share it. But, I guess knowledge is power and it’s already out there all over Pinterest, so here goes.

You can make fudge with three ingredients in the microwave.

3 Ingredient Fudge

Terrifying, I know.  With very minimal effort and time spent, you get fudge.  I remember making the fudge recipe off of the Fluff container and I’m pretty sure that it required double boilers and lots of stirring over a hot stove.  This recipe requires dumping things in a bowl, pressing buttons on the microwave and minimal stirring.  Also one hour of waiting for the fudge to set up, which might be the hardest part of the whole thing.


1 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 Bag of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 tsp vanilla

1.  Pour the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl.

2.  Microwave for 1 minute.

3.  Remove from microwave, add vanilla and stir to combine until all of the chocolate is melted.  Microwave additional 30 seconds if necessary.

4. Pour the chocolate mixture into a square, parchment paper lined baking pan.

5.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set the fudge.

6.  Lock your refrigerator with a timing lock that only allows you to open it long enough to take out one piece of fudge every 24 hours.

This was really, really good.  I really want to try to figure out how to add a coffee flavor to it to mimic the Espresso Fudge I get at my favorite fudge place, Kellerhaus, in New Hampshire.  And once I figure out espresso, maybe I’ll try mint, and then pumpkin and then whatever else I can think of.

What I love about fudge, other than the fudge, is that this makes a great holiday snacking dessert and also a great handmade gift.  Pop these into  tin and you have a great holiday gift for your kids teachers or hostess gift.
