Microwave Fudge With Sweetened Condensed Milk
As far as I’m concerned microwave fudge is the way to go. It doesn’t get easier than 5 minutes of prep to make rich, chocolaty fudge.
You do need to work very quickly while making this fudge because it will start to seize up if you take too long stirring and pouring. Prep the pan and ingredients before you even think about starting.
This is just one of many amazing quick and easy dessert recipes form the new cookbook The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook by Mary Younkin. Mary is a fellow food blogger at BarefeetInTheKitchen.com. She is the master of simple, no-fuss, delicious recipes.
This fudge recipe jumped out at me because I was super in the mood for chocolate and I thought this would be a great recipe to share for the upcoming holiday season.

How Do You Make Microwave Fudge
- Line a 6-cup loaf pan with parchment paper. Prepare and measure all ingredients so that you can move quickly.
- Combine chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter in glass mixing bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds. Stir and microwave in 15 second increments until the chocolate is mostly melted and only a few flecks remain.
- Add vanilla, pretzels and marshmallows. Stir to combine. Scoop or pour mixture into prepared loaf pan, spread evenly and press down to flatten. Add a few pretzels and marshmallows on top.
- Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before slicing into squares. (I sliced the entire loaf shape lengthwise then cut into squares to make smaller portions)
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
