    OMG!!!I really needed to succeed at fudge, after an ultimate fail. Using what was supposed to be an easy marshmellow fudge recipe. The claim was that no candy thermometer was needed. Having just moved from one state to another my trusty candy thermometer had gone missing. This seemed a perfect solution. Well, with a new church group I wanted to bring a perfect treat to the Christmas party. Instead I had GRITTY fantasy fudge. I took it any way and these good ladies ate it and told me it was so good anyway. Tonight I’m going to bring this perfect fudge to Bible study. This time when they say it’s good it will be.
    Thanks so much

    I, who CANNOT MAKE FUDGE, made this SUCCESSFULLY!!
    Yes, in less than 5 Minutes (including time to Chop Pecans) I had a BEAUTIFUL Plate of Chocolate Pecan Fudge!
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU..THANK YOU!!

  4. TH says:

    While this is missing the marshmallow creme that I think adds such good and creamy flavor, my microwave’s output for power is 1000W. I followed this receipt to the letter and it turned out great.

    Thank you

  7. Janet Agee says:

    I’ve been making this fudge for many years now. Not only is it the easiest way to make Fudge but you really have to work to make it fail. You will be so happy because you just can’t go wrong with this recipe.

  8. Carrie Barnard says:

    No you just heat it until it is melted.

  9. Sharon Carter says:

    Loved this receipt. If the chocolate is melted after one minute, is there a need to melt it an additional minute? Our microwave heats fast. It was a little hard when I did it the second minute.

    Made this recipe adding slivered almonds and sweetened coconut….tasted just like an Almond Joy! It didn’t last long at my house!

  14. Rhonda says:

    Microwave Fudge sounds so easy. However, my husband likes the milk chocolate colored fudge rather than the dark colored chocolate fudge.

    Can I use milk chocolate morsels instead of semi-sweet? Or should I use a combination of the two? Do I need to change any ingredients?

  15. Francie says:

    4 stars
    I loved how easy it is however I think next time I will add a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. It seemed in need of a little extra flavor!

  16. Sandra says:

    I love to try your microwave recipes

  17. Carrie says:

    Yes, it will freeze great.

  18. Gill says:

    Thank you so much for this yummy one .
    I really like your way of explaining
    You got my heart.

  21. Carrie says:

    Thanks for sharing Lynne!

    This is the recipe we have been making in the double boiler for years. How much easier this is! I would make a few suggestions/corrections: Add a dash of salt, half a teaspoon or so before microwaving. When it is finished, add a teaspoon of vanilla for the final stir. It will be pliable and you could perhaps put it into forms or roll it into a tube and then slice off round pieces or triangles for Christmas Tree shapes, for a different presentation.

  23. Carrie says:

    Oh I love that idea – Thank you for sharing!

  24. Gail Williams says:

    You haven’t lived until you try this with macadamia nuts 🙂

  25. Kim says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this super simple recipe, Carrie. It looks amazing and I am sure it would be over the top delicious with some your suggestions for add-ins. I cannot wait to devour this tasty treat.

    I made a variation of this today. I used pecans and a teaspoon of vanilla to make a plainer fudge. Then I made Rocky Road fudge. With the same teaspoon of vanilla and 2 cups of peanuts plus about 4 cups of mini marshmallows.
    Mixed it all together in a bowl and put it in a foil lined 8×8 pan and set it in the fridge to harden. Can’t wait to give these out as gifts for the holidays everyone loves them and they are so easy to make.

  27. Carrie says:

    I think the firmness depends on what the ingredients are heated too. If the ingredients don’t get warm enough the fudge will be soft and if they get too hot, it’ll be firmer fudge. The vanilla extract doesn’t affect that in my opinion.

  28. Suzy says:

    Most fudge recipes call for the 14 oz size sweetened condensed milk. What would it do to the consistency (soft vs. firmer) of the fudge if you used 14 oz vs. 12 oz? Anyone know? Also, if you add vanilla, will this change the texture/firmness? I would like to make the fudge a little firmer vs. soft. Any pointers would be appreciated.

  29. Carrie says:

    Love it! Thank you so much for your review!

  30. Sadie says:

    Added pecans. SOOOO delicious & easy????

  31. Carrie says:

    Oh no! Yes, sweetened condensed milk is needed for this recipe. Thanks!

  32. Karen says:

    Darn..I used evaporated milk..oops

  33. Carrie says:

    I use 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. Thanks!

  34. Cathy E Reilly says:

    What is the measurement for chips?

  35. Carrie says:

    Dianna – I used a 12 oz can for this recipe. I updated the recipe as well. Thank you!

  36. Dianna says:

    No size on condensed milk?

  37. Camille Walker says:

    What size can of condensed milk….5oz or 11 something??

  38. Ryan Gianos says:

    I love no-bake fudge recipes. I haven’t yet gotten around to adding chopped nuts to mine, but have made several variations with white morsels, and candy toppings. I look forward to giving this one a try. Thanks for posting.

  39. Debbie says:

    I wanted to try this recipe but it doesn’t say what size can of milk.

  40. Denise says:

    What size can of condensed milk do you use?

  41. margaret hare says:

  42. Debbie Harrington says:

  43. James says:

    I like to use wax paper instead of foil, and also add 1 tsp. of vanilla.
    The sweetened condensed milk makes the fudge so smooth.

  44. elodie says:
