2 Ingredient, Microwave Fudge

Yes, this delicious fudge is made in the microwave with only two ingredients!

Okay, so I have to give props to my mom for this recipe.  I was visiting a little while back and she made this microwave fudge that was so delicious I just had to ask for the recipe.  And she promptly laughed at me.  That's because the recipe said "heat tub of frosting and bag of morsels in microwave safe bowl."  Yep:



Yes, you mix these two ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl, nuke for a minute or so, mix, nuke, mix, continue until smooth.  Then you pour them into a pan to cool.  To make things easier you can grease the pan, or better yet, line it with parchment paper.  Let it cool in the fridge until it's nice and firm (a few hours), then serve it up!

And the absolute best part?  You can pretty much use any flavor tub of frosting and any flavor morsels!

For a traditional fudge flavor use chocolate frosting and milk chocolate morsels.  For a super dark chocolate fudge you can try dark chocolate frosting and dark chocolate morsels.  You can also experiment with white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, etc.

I'm going to try using Ande's mints instead of morsels!  Or maybe make a vanilla fudge and crumble some Oreo's in there.  Oh, this is dangerous.

Happy Fudge Making,
Nicole

  4. Can't wait to try making this! Would these hold up for couple days of no refrigeration? I'd like to make some to mail to family for Christmas.

    1. I'm not sure how these would hold up in the mail. I know they get quite soft at room temperature, but they should firm back up after a few hours in the fridge. If you've tried this, let us know - I'm very interested to hear how it works.

    2. I would think that if you added some extra chocolate chips, that it would not get so soft at room temperature.

    1. really you can use any size. A larger pan will produce thinner fudge while a smaller pan will be thicker!

  11. is that 11.5 ounces of nestle choc. chips?

  12. This really is good. If I only have vanilla frosting could I put some cocoa powder in that and mix in bowl then add the choc chips?

    1. I don't see why you couldn't, I would just be very careful of burning. And also remember that because it has chocolate, any moisture that gets into the mix will make the whole thing coagulate into a globby mess.

  14. I made it with Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Chips with Cherry Flavored Center and Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Frosting. I heated it in a bowl over hot water on the stove since I don't have a microwave. OMG! It was amazing! Thanks for the recipe. I am telling everyone I know.

    1. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it! I bet the cherry was amazing - I will have to try some. And I'm also glad to hear it heated well on the stove since others were asking and I hadn't tried it.

  17. I found caramel apple frosting online (very reasonable) as it is a fall-type seasonal product. I melted it with vanilla chips and OH. MY. LAND was it great!

  18. I made this to try it out. It didn't last long enough to get hard. My sister and nieces took care of it. I got a small bite and next time I will make when they leave ��

Please leave me some love. Tell me if you've tried these things, if you've like them, if they were a nightmare, or if you know what I've done wrong. I'd love if you included links to your work, but please, keep it relevant.
