Hi Bold Bakers!

You know what’s pretty great? Fudge. You know what’s insane? Cookie butter fudge! My Microwave Cookie Butter Fudge recipe is unlike any you’ve ever had, and you certainly can’t get something like this at the store!

With just a few simple ingredients, and barely any time at all using my favorite kitchen gadget (the microwave!), you’ll have a batch of incredible Microwave Cookie Butter Fudge in record time. Great as a gift, or treat for yourself, this is one recipe you’ll want in your pocket from now on.

What is cookie butter and how do you make it?

Ok, so, let me tell you about cookie butter!

Sometimes referred to as “speculoos,” cookie butter is cookies ground up with butter and evaporated milk. The finished butter is a cookie-flavored spread that just might change your life. Think Nutella, but cookie flavored.

To make homemade cookie butter, all you need is your favorite cookie, a food processor, and a few minutes. My Shortbread Cookie Butter, Oreo Cookie Butter, and Nutter Butter Cookie Butter recipes are just a few variations you can make. Feel free to use any kind of cookie you like!

How to Make Cookie Butter Fudge

To make cookie butter fudge, you simply make my 3 Ingredient Microwave Fudge recipe by melting chocolate, butter, and condensed milk in the microwave.

After the fudge is melted, I add in a generous amount of cookie butter and swirl through the fudge. This not only looks so impressive, but the cookie butter swirl adds the most unique flavor and texture to the fudge.

Your friends and family will be blown away by my Microwave Cookie Butter Fudge.

Rich Cookie Butter Fudge is even better when you make it in the microwave, because when something is faster, less fussy, and easier to cleanup — it's a dream come true.

Rich Cookie Butter Fudge is even better when you make it in the microwave, because when something is faster, less fussy, and easier to cleanup — it's a dream come true.
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 16


  • 3 cups (18oz/510g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 can (14oz/395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/57g) butter
  • 2/3 cup (8oz/225g) cookie butter of your choice


  • Butter and line an 8X8 inch pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl add the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the chocolate is melted. This timing is a based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts, so your cook time may very. (You can also make the fudge over a bain-marie)
  • Once melted, stir to combine. Do not be tempted to over-mix the fudge as this can cause it to separate. 
  • Fold in the cookie butter reserving some to swirl over the top. 
  • Transfer the fudge to the prepared tin, smooth out the top, then spoon over the reserved cookie butter. Using a butter knife or tooth pick, swirl the cookie butter across the top of the fudge. You'll want to work quickly doing this before the fudge begins to set. 
  • Allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to overnight. 
  • Remove from the fridge and cut into 16 squares. Cover and store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.

Ever tried 2 ingredient fudge ? Take chocolate or fudge any really hard of all ready made icing and the normal size jar of peanut butter ( not small not large middle size) take spatula scoop both into a bowl dont mix. Microwave for one minute check if hard to mix microwave 1 more minute stir together pour into buttered dish. I made 6 flavors in half an hour for christmas gifts. The only icing I had a problem with was the German chocolate icing. It was a bit soft so reduce the icing by 1/4 of jar or increase… Read more »
