Hi Bold Bakers!

All Your Holiday Baking Needs In One Place!


Make My Fudge Recipe On A Stovetop

If you don’t have a microwave, you can of course do it the old fashioned way. It’s still a fairly quick treat to whip up. Once the fudge is melted and you’ve added in the desired flavor, its only a matter of allowing the fudge to set up in the fridge. Once set, the fudge can be cut into uniform squares (or other shapes!) and wrapped up to the 9’s to be given away.

The finished fudge will be gorgeous, decadent, and satisfying.

How long does microwave fudge last?

One of the best things about my fudge recipe is how long it will last. It will last covered at room temperature for up to four weeks. Perfect for sharing and treating yourself all holidays season long! A word to the wise, though: the flavor and texture of fudge are at their best when stored at room temperature, so no need to put it into the fridge.

Chocolate & Orange Fudge

Praline is crunchy, chewy, and a perfect addition to fudge. Get my Praline Fudge recipe and make a batch!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (18oz/510g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 can (14oz/395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/28g) butter

Instructions

  • 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. This timing is a based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts, so your cook time may very. You just want to heat the mixture until the chocolate is fully melted. 
  • Once melted, stir until smooth. At this point fold in desired mix-ins to make Praline Fudge, Chocolate and Orange Fudge and Cookie Butter Fudge. Do not be tempted to over-mix the fudge as this can cause it to separate. 
  • Transfer the fudge to the prepared tin, smooth out the top and add additional garnishes. 
  • 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.

Hello and Happy New Year!
I made the basic fudge recipe and added dried cherries.
I used 18 oz of 56% cacao semi sweet baking chocolate squares, 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk and 2 table spoons of salted butter. I microwaved until the chocolate was just melted and I stirred quickly then folded in the cherries. I put it in a pan and into the refrig. Mu fudge is hard, more like a candy.
What did I do wrong??

Gemma,
Instead of cookie butter, I would like to add peanutbutter. Would that work?

Is there a way to make this sugar free or lower sugar for diabetics?

Thank you for posting the recipe Gemma! What type of chocolate would be best for your recipe? I don’t know if I should buy chocolate chips, chocolate wafers or Callebaut chocolate blocks.

I made this and it was delicious, but not my idea of fudge. The fudge I remember from my youth involved a candy thermometer and soft-ball stage blah-blah-blah, and no milk. This tasted instead like the most fantastic truffles ever, and I think I will use it for that purpose this holiday season. Thank you for another delicious, simple and realistic recipe.

Gemma, I found come watch a video when I am missing my Irish grandmother from Buncrana! I could only get Ghirardell bitter sweet chips, and I failed to realize that I needed 3 cups. I was a cup short. To make 2 full cups, I used about an 1/8 of an inch to the top of the second cup. I cut the evaporate milk and butter accordingly. It’s a really thick fudge. Where it’s well blended, it’s fantastic. Where it’s not, it’s bitter. Could the chips instead of chocolate bar you shredded be too much? I’d like to use caramel… Read more »

This 3 ingredient fudge calls for 2T butter but in other places on the website it is listed as 1/4 cup. The video looks more like 2T. Which is correct? I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you.

Hi gem i tried to make this last night and tonight when i try to cut it after it was out from the fridge, it was slightly melting, certainly not as firm as yours and the orange i sprinkle on top was sinking in. Can you please let me know what i did wrong? Thank you.
