Best Five Minute Microwave Fudge Recipe

My Grandma makes this AMAZING fudge every year during the holidays that I just can’t seem to get enough of… the only drawback I have found (beyond it going straight to my thighs) is that it is pretty time consuming and costly to make a batch.

Which is what inspired me to create this simple small batch version of her recipe, that I have officially dubbed The Best Five Minute Microwave Fudge Recipe out there.

When I started seeing recipes online for small batches of Fudge made in the microwave, I knew that I wanted to work on adapting Grandma’s recipe for the microwave too.

I wanted it to taste exactly the same, but to take 1/4th the time and effort to make, and as luck would have it… my attempts in the kitchen were a success, because now we have an awesome…

Five minute, small batch, microwave fudge!

Just look how tasty it turned out! At least I think so anyway…;)

I have tried multiple microwave fudge recipes, and was never fully satisfied with any of them… which was what actually fueled my drive for wanting to adapt my grandma’s recipe this way… and I’m SO glad that I did because…

Grandma’s Fudge recipe is divine!

I decided that I wanted to get a video made to show you guys just how simple it is to make this recipe, because I can tell you that it’s easy all day long, but seeing the full process of how to make it will show you that I’m not just blowing smoke by telling you that.
