Hi Bold Bakers!

My easy microwave Praline Fudge recipe covers all of my favorite flavors: chocolatey, nutty, crunchy, caramel-y and sweet. It’s like an explosion in your mouth.

Perfect for gift-giving, or serving as an after dinner treat, this holiday season make things simple and so so yummy by whipping up a batch of my Microwave Praline Fudge.

How To Make Praline

Praline, for those of you who have never had it, is a magical candy creation. Made by melting sugar, a little butter, and water, this mixture caramelizes and sets like a hard candy but has the flavor of a caramel.

Loaded with slivered almonds, my recipe for How To Make Praline is a show-stopper. Don’t be intimidated by working with sugar — it’s a really simple 2-step process and so worth it. Praline can be added to all sorts of things, like fudge or ice cream, and is so versatile that it’s easily one of my favorite candies.

How long does praline fudge last?

Once the praline is set and cracked into shards, it looks awesome. I love to fold in large chunks and some smaller ones to make sure it’s evenly distributed through the fudge. Once the fudge sets it will last up to four weeks in an airtight container at room temperature.

The fudge itself is so rich and chocolatey, and the praline stays crunchy adding so much texture and nutty flavor.

  • 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. (If you don't have a microwave 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 praline from my How To Make Praline recipe, reserving some to sprinkle over the top.
  • Transfer the fudge to the prepared tin, smooth out the top then garnish with reserved praline.
  • 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 at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.

Hello Gemma, thank you so much, I tried your recipe for microwave praline fudge and wow! It actually set!!! I’ve made numerous batches of fudge on the hob that I’ve either under cooked or over cooked, with a thermometer too and I’ve wasted loads of money on ingredients that ended up in the bin and burnt numerous pans! So I was so pleased with the results, it’s very rich but gorgeous so I am looking forward to trying more of your microwave fudge recipes! I haven’t totally mastered coating the nuts for the praline with the sugar syrup yet but… Read more »

Hiya Gemma, I just wondered if it was possible to give a measurement in Grams rather than cups for the praline measurement please. I am British so i use Grams as i don’t really understand cup measurements especially with solid ingredients.
Thank you.

This sounds so easy so I am going to try it. I would love to make the Praline but I can NEVER get the sugar and water to caramelize. It always crystallizes on me. I have tried it and wasted 5lbs of sugar. I only have ScanPan pots so I am not sure if that is the reason. So I will just add nuts or something. Thank you for making recipes so easy.

When making praline, have you tried using Swerve or plain xylitol?
