A delicious microwave chocolate fudge recipe that only takes 4 minutes to make!
When I was a little girl and we would get together at my grandma’s house for Christmas, I would always look forward to seeing with my cousins. We had so much fun playing together and even sneaking the Christmas treats. I don’t know why I remember this particular random memory, but I remember tasting fudge for the first time at one of these family gatherings. It was in a blue Christmas tin, and being the chocolate lover that I am, I thought it was delicious!
My mom made variations of fudge recipes when I was in high school with the most delicious flavors. One of my very favorites is the rocky road fudge recipes HERE.
This fudge recipe has a little bit of a different texture than traditional fudge recipes, but it is decadent and delicious- and you can’t beat the 4 minutes it takes to make (or less). And, if you have ever been intimidated by candy making, this recipe is for you!
You can customize the recipe by using different variations of white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter, or butterscotch chips. You can also mix in other candies, cookies, sprinkles, etc. to make your own delicious fudge combinations.
It only takes a few minutes and it makes the perfect party treat or neighbor gift for the holidays. I always keep kraft to-go boxes on hand for these treats. It is an easy way to throw together extra treats and take them to neighbors and friends.
When making this recipe, the key is to not overcook the chocolate.
