My Great Grandma could make the BEST fudge in the world. As, I’m sure, you will say yours did :). My Great Grandma’s was all on the stovetop employing huge amounts of butter and marshmallow fluff. We loved Christmas when we knew GG would make up a batch or two and always included a batch without nuts ( I HATE nuts in my fudge ) just for me. It was heaven.
This microwave fudge is as good as Great Grandma’s. For real. I would rather have Great Grandma’s any day of the week if it was delivered by her, don’t mistake. But flavorwise…this microwave fudge recipe can’t be beat and is the recipe I use year after year during the holidays
This fudge is good and, it was made in the microwave. Give it a try. I think this is the only fudge recipe you’ll ever use again. My Great Grandma would be so proud!
Don’t forget, though, to tell the stories of your Grandma’s homemade fudge recipe, to make the original recipe sometimes with your kids, write that recipe down on a keepsake card, or find other ways to cherish a kitchen memory about someone you love.

- 1 1/2 bags semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 stick of butter
- Put ingredients in a large microwave bowl. Be sure to cut the butter into smaller sections so it melts as quickly as the chocolate.
- Cook it up in the microwave until it's melted, stirring every 30 seconds or so. The amount of time this takes can vary, so watch for your chocolate to be smooth.
- When melted, remove from microwave (careful not to burn yourself!)
- Stir in your add-ins. We used pecans, but any number of add-ins are great!
- Pour into a greased 8 by 8 pan
