My Grandma makes this AMAZING fudge every year during the holidays that I just can’t 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…;)
It’s the BEST Microwave Fudge Recipe!
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 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.
- ⅓ C Milk
- 1 (7 oz) Jar Marshmallow Creme
- 3 C Powdered Sugar
- 1 Package Milk Chocolate Chips
- 2 (1.55 oz) Hershey Bars (broken into small pieces)
- ½ C Walnuts (chopped)
How to make easy microwave fudge:
- In a large microwave safe bowl add the first three ingredients, mix well.
- Add the chocolate, mix well, and microwave for two minutes.
- Remove from microwave and mix well.
- Add nuts, mix well.
- Spread into a greased 8x8" casserole dish. Let cool to room temperature.
- Cut and serve.
For best results, make sure to let your fudge set/ripen at room temperature. Store in an airtight container and try not to eat it all yourself.

I’m pretty excited with how close to the real deal this new, smaller batch, faster fudge recipe turned out!
It tastes the same but only takes about one fifth as much time to make and smaller batch means it costs less to make, so that’s a total win in my book!
