Microwave Condensed Milk Fudge

July 18, 2011

So, I got me a hankering for some fudge and after a quick google search came up with what looked like an easy and quick recipe and more importantly one I had all the ingredients for.

Ingredients:

  • 125g butter/marge
  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • splash vanilla essence

Method:

  • Before you get started, line a baking tin or tray with grease proof paper, this will help you to remove the fudge later without it sticking to your pan.
  • Most importantly make sure that the microwavable dish you use is big, if you think your dish is big enough get a bigger one.  Trust me, its a bitch trying to clean sticky fudge batter that has boiled over off your microwave.
  • Place butter and sugar into the bowl and give a small mix.
  • Pour the condensed milk on top of the sugar and butter, dont mix.
  • Add your splash of vanilla essence.
  • Place the bowl in the centre of the microwave and set it for 10 minutes.
  • Watching to make sure the mixture doesnt boil over, stop the microwave (without resetting your count down) after 1 minute has passed and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • I used a wooden spoon to stir and then used a plastic spatula to scrape the mixture of the wooden spoon and back into the bowl.
  • Place the bowl back in the microwave and let it cook for another minute.
  • Stop the microwave and stir.
  • Place the bowl back in the microwave and repeat above until the 10 minutes are up.
  • I had to stop the countdown every 20 – 30 seconds after the 2nd minute because the mixture kept boiling up too high.
  • Just keep an eye on your mixture and make sure it doesnt boil over.
  • After the 10 minute count down is over spoon your mixture into your lined tin and refrigerate until set.
  • Cut the cooled and set fudge into squares and enjoy!

*** I spread the fudge mixture too thin in the pan, next time I will use a smaller pan and make thicker fudge.  Also, use a bit of spray and cook on the bottom of the pan before putting in the wax paper, might make it a bit easier to remove from the pan.

    i have been making this fudge for many years. i add 2 tablespoons of golden syrup in the beginning (for a more caramel flavour) and i only add the vanilla essence at the end and then i beat it for 2 minutes, by doing this it helps the fudge to set quicker and with out a fridge.
