You're probably wondering, "How do you make fudge in the microwave? Is it any good?" This Microwave Chocolate Fudge is so simple and delicious! No candy thermometer needed!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces

What to Do

  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe 2-quart glass bowl. Microwave chocolate mixture at MEDIUM (50 percent power) 5 minutes, stirring at 1-1/2-minute intervals. Pour into a greased 8-inch square dish. Cover and chill 8 hours; cut into 1-1/2-inch squares. Store in refrigerator.


No candy thermometer needed for this fudge, just your microwave and fridge! We recommend chilling the fudge about 8 hours so it can firm up nicely before you cut into it.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make this and add 1 tsp of Hazelnut extract. Nutella fudge.

You can buy milk chocolate chips anywhere you can find chocolate chips of any flavor, check the packages. As for using cocoa powder in place of the chocolate chips, I wouldn't attempt that with this recipe. There are recipes out there on the web that use cocoa powder, look up one of those if you really need to use cocoa powder. Also, for this recipe, I think it would be good with the butter, but I usually make it with just the chips and sweetened condensed milk, following the recipe instructions for microwaving as directed. I have to admit, I MUST add about a cup of walnuts or pecans, before scooping the melted mixture into the pan and chilling. My family and coworkers can't stay out of this!

Tell me how...fudge is supposed to chill in the refrigerator for my house, it would be gone in less than an hour!

I still want to know can cocoa powder be used instead of chocolate chips in the microwave fudge & how much do I use.

Made these when I was in 4H. Thought I had lost the recipe. And yes, there are milk chocolate chocolate chips. They are not as bitter as semi sweet. This is a great recipe.

what are milk chocolate chips, or is this 3cups of milk plus chocolate chips

Thanks for all the good recipes, the ones I've tried are oh, so good. My husband likes them too!
