So unbelievably easy and so, so very good! It has quite a sturdy (for want of a better word!) texture, slightly crumbly and melt- in- the- mouth good.
*I know it looks a different colour in each of the photos- one was taken on my phone and the other on my daughter’s camera*
Facebook has a lot to answer for don’t you think?
Reading through a food group I belong to, a member was asking for an easy fudge recipe as she had a tin of condensed milk languishing in the cupboard…
Maureen to the rescue!
Who came up trumps with a microwaveable fudge recipe, using only a few ingredients.
Of course then it was a slippery slide into fudge heaven!
Here’s the recipe, do try it.
And Maureen, thanks for allowing me to share the recipe here.
Maureen’s Microwaveable Fudge
1 tin Nestle condensed milk (MUST be full fat/cream)
500ml castor sugar or 500ml granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon golden syrup
125g Stork margarine (block type)
5ml caramel or vanilla essence
Combine all ingredients except essence in a large deep plastic bowl (glass will crack with the high heat) Microwave on full power (750 watt) for 2 minutes, stir, 5 minutes, stir, 4 minutes, stir then 1 minute and stir. Colour changes when its ready to set to quite a golden brown.
Add essence and beat well, should “sound” grainy.
Pour into greased heatproof tray and leave 10 minutes. Score into squares and leave till set.
Marks out of ten? 9.
Would I make it again? It’s so easy, I’d be mad not to!
Would I do anything differently? Maureen suggested that sometimes she adds chocolate or nuts to hers, I’m definitely going to try that next time.
I used butter instead of stork as that is what I had at home.
Wow this looks AMAZING and sounds so easy – off to the shops so I can buy some condensed milk and try this! What a great recipe to have up your sleeve for unexpected visitors:)
What nice idea!!! I love fudge! gloria
Amazing! Didn't know I could use microwave to make fudge! Love it!
Looks tasty and easy – a winning combination!
Angie, Gloria and FL, it's a high return for little effort! Not creamy textured like some fudge, but nice and solidly crumbly.
This is dangerous Anna! Now I know this super easy recipe is here I may not be able to control myself!!
Looks delish – I noticed that you're also loving Lorraine Pascal's new recipe book… I received mine last week and tried her chocolate fudge. It's also nice and easy, and has marshmallows in it, so makes it more like a smooth shop bought fudge rather than the grainy home made versions.. which I have to admit, I do prefer. It's delish, and definitely worth a try!
oh no an easy to made fudge – so good but not good too if you know what I mean!
Such a great idea!I'll use this recipe at the Arts and Crafts class I give at the end of the month!Thanks for sharing,Anna,have a great week!Filakia!
This might be the beginning of the end for me….fudge you can make at home in minutes…in a microwave? I'll never need to leave the house again!I'm glad it's a sturdy texture – too much modern fudge is so lightweight it's gone in 10 seconds! God, I sound such a gutbucket!!!
Anna, what a quick and yummy fudge recipe! Don't tell my kids that fudge can be this easy…they'll want a batch every week!!! 🙂
I love fudge!!! 🙂
It looks really yummy!I love it!Many kisses,Annoula mou!
Wow that fudge looks so good!!Mariax
Ooh fudge is so decedent and that looks very tempting.
Oh the temptation – I have just replaced my microwave (having been without one for about 4 years) Do you think it's an omen??!!??
