Microwave Fudge is an easy recipe that comes together in a snap. A few ingredients and a microwave are all that's required to make this rich, creamy fudge. Don't miss the video showing how to make microwave fudge!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14-oz can condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


1. Prepare an 8x8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave in one-minute increments until melted, about 2-3 minutes.

3. Stir to ensure all the chocolate is melted, then add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the candy is smooth and well-mixed.

4. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer.

5. Place the fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours. Once set, cut into 1-inch squares and serve at room temperature. Store excess fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Foolproof and fantastic, Member CookiesMome

I like to stir in 1 c. bits o' brickle and 1 c. of toasted pecan pieces. I also use seasonal sprinkles on the top-the little fun shapes not the colored sugar. I love the ease of this recipe. My husband says it is is delicious and not too sweet. I always get requests for this at the holidays and include it in all my food gift baskets.
