Easy Microwave Fudge







I grew up in a family who loves dessert. Over the years this genetic sweet tooth brought us to discover/create countless quick recipes for sweets (such as these peanut butter cookies). This fudge is one of my favorite desserts and takes only minutes to make (in the microwave, no less). It has only four ingredients and can be altered in numerous ways depending on what flavor you're craving. Over the weekend, I made a batch with chocolate and peanut butter, which was fantastic. But I also like to use chocolate/butterscotch, white chocolate/peanut butter, and chocolate/toffee bits/nuts. The options are endless.

Easy Microwave Fudge
3 cups chocolate chips (I substituted 1 cup of chocolate for 1 cup of peanut butter chips)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla

Add all ingredients to a microwave safe bowl and melt chips for 3-5 minutes, stirring every two minutes. Pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Refrigerate until set.
