Best Five Minute Microwave Fudge Recipe (2024)

Jump to Recipe

My Grandma makes some super AMAZING fudge every year during the holidays, and everyone that has ever tried it very quickly admits that they just cannot get enough of it! I truly mean it when I say that it really is THAT good… the only drawback I have found (beyond it going straight to my thighs and tummy) is that it can be time consuming, and costly to make a batch. I think that is probably why grandma ends up only making it about once a year. Which is why I created this small batch of microwave fudge recipe.

About this recipe

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

My goal with this particular recipe development was that I wanted it to taste as close to exactly the same as possible, but to be able to make the small batch version because the cost of making fudge can sometimes be pretty steep.

Now, the new microwave version of my Grandma Mary’s Fudge recipe takes about 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 this tasty treat.

Which is an awesome easy fudge recipe that is a small batch and the benefit of a small batch fudge recipe is that it’s much easier not to “let oneself go” and eat the whole pan…and, the small batch version costs about 1/3rd as much as the original recipe… which to me, is win/win.

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

I may be biased, but I think that…

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 my grandma’s recipe this way… and I am SO glad that I did because…

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 at you by telling you that.

*Just please remember that the longer you let it sit at room temperature, the better the texture will be.

I’m pretty excited with how close to the real deal this new, smaller batch, faster fudge recipe turned out!

I can’t believe that it tastes exactly the same but only takes about one fifth of the time to make and a smaller batch means it costs less to make, so that’s a total win for me and you!

FAQ’s

Can I double this recipe?

I actually don’t recommend doubling this recipe as the time in the microwave would vary greatly and it could actually ruin the chocolate or marshmallow textures.

Luckily, this recipe takes so little time to make you could just reuse the same bowl and make it twice in less than ten minutes.

*I will add more easy microwave fudge faq’s as the questions get sent to me.
