Recipe : Microwave Fudge

One of the most memorable smells from my early childhood, is the smell of microwave fudge. My mum would make this over school holidays when I was in primary school, together with peanut brittle. The whole house would smell like a bakery and it felt like forever waiting for the fudge to cool down. Something about the greyish weather triggered that memory for me today so of course I HAD to make some!

Here is a really easy recipe and I can vouch for the end result.

Ingredients

100g of margarine (aren’t you glad I didn’t say butter!)

1 tin of condensed milk

2 cups of castor sugar

1tsp of vanilla essence

AND

a very large bowl

Microwave fudge

Method
  • Add the margarine, castor sugar and condensed milk to the bowl.
  • Microwave for 2 minutes so that the margarine melts completely, then mix well.
  • Microwave for a further 10 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until the mixture turns a light shade of brown. Stay close to the microwave because it will boil over in a heartbeat! (trust me on this)
  • Remove the bowl very carefully, then mix in the vanilla essence.
  • Empty the fudge into a casserole dish and leave to cool.
  • Try to cut the fudge into squares before it is completely cold to prevent cracking.

 

You can add desiccated coconut to the mix, cocoa, cranberries, pistachio, sea salt…whatever you like.

I prefer plain fudge with a bit of sprinkles for the girls.

Enjoy!
