This recipe can be changed to have nuts or cherries added. A simple fudge recipe that’s made in the microwave and ready in less than an hour… that’s after cooling.
Makes about 12 squares.
30ml (2T) melted butter
500g icing sugar
1 tin condensed milk
100ml chopped nuts / cherries
5ml (1tsp) vanilla essence
Grease a 20cm square cake tin with a little melted butter, line it with baking paper and grease the baking paper with butter.
Sift the icing sugar into a big glass bowl or microwave-proof dish and mix with the condensed milk and butter.
Microwave the mixture on 100% power for 2 minutes, then whisk well. Microwave for another 10 minutes, stirring well after 5 minutes.
Add the nuts or cherries and the vanilla essence and beat with a wooden spoon until it thickens slightly.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, spreading it evenly with a wooden spoon.
Cut the fudge into squares before it sets and leave to harden.
Remove from the tin with a spatula.
Debby Dash Notes
The bowl gets very hot in the microwave whilst cooking the mixture. Please handle with care.
Every microwave is different in watts, please use time accordingly.
