The time when we pull out our rubber spatulas and baking supplies to whip up some delicious treats for friends and neighbors. This year I’m sharing my favorite super easy Fudge Recipe that comes together in just minutes!

Last Minute Chocolate Fudge Recipe:

  • Start by combining some chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter in a large microwave safe dish.
  • Microwave in 1 minute bursts, stirring after each time, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in some vanilla extract and, if desired, some chopped nuts!

Combine some chocolate chips, butter and sweetened condensed milk in a microwave safe dish and melt to make this super easy Last Minute Fudge Recipe!

Microwave Fudge Recipe:

  • Yes, this recipe is quickly made in the microwave, but you don’t have to use the microwave if you’re not a fan.
  • Simply combine the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter in a glass bowl and place on top of a pot of boiling water. Melt the mixture and proceed with the remaining instructions.
  • In the microwave it took me about 4 bursts of 1 minute cooking time to get the mixture nice and smooth.
  • Try to not over cook the chocolate as this will cause it to have a bad taste and texture. When in doubt, just keep stirring and the residual heat will eventually melt the chocolate.

Add in chopped pecans or walnuts to the fudge if desired.

Are you a fan of nuts in your chocolate fudge? I am! I love the sweet and nutty combination, but if you’re not a fan, just leave them out for a simple and delicious chocolate fudge.

Quick Chocolate Fudge Variations:

  • Instead of adding pecans, try using walnuts or peanuts!
  • Swirl some peanut butter into the top of the fudge before it sets for a chocolate peanut butter flavor!
  • Swap out the vanilla extract for peppermint extract and add crushed candy canes on top!
  • Toss in your favorite candy like M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces for a fun flavor combo!
  • Try this White Chocolate Peppermint Pattie Fudge for a fun and festive variation!

Pour the chocolate fudge into a parchment lined baking pan and pop in the fridge to set.

I found that this fudge has it’s best texture when it’s stored in the fridge, and becomes a little on the softer side when it’s left on counter.

  • Author: Shawn
  • Prep Time: 3
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: 45 to 50 squares
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Microwave
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 24 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips (about 4 cups)
  • 2 (14 oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans, optional

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×13″ baking pan with parchment paper so it comes up the sides of the pan, making it easy to remove the fudge. Set aside.
  2. Combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter in a large microwavable safe dish. Microwave in 1 minute bursts, stirring after each time, until mixture is smooth and creamy. (It takes me about 4 minutes to get the mixture smooth in a small 700 watt microwave).
  3. Stir in the vanilla and 1 cup of nuts (if desired). Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread into an even thickness. Top with the remaining nuts.
  4. Pop the fudge into the fridge to let set. Cut into small squares and enjoy! (Keep refrigerated for best texture)

      Shawn, I’m a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America and have been a restaurant consultant for the last 20 years. The classic recipes that I lwas taught in school will always have a place in my life but sometimes life doesn’t leave the average person with enough time to prepare such recipes.
      My sister shared your site with me and so far, I’ve made your chicken eggrolls and your last minute fudge (with very minimal modifications). Boyh were excellent!
      I’ve never subscribed to a “home chef” blog before but I really like your style and I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes! Thank you!!
