It's so easy to make!
How To Make Microwave Fudge

Fancy making some homemade fudge with the kids to pass the time, but can't be bothered with another kitchen nightmare? You don't need to be skilled or have oodles of spare time to make Microwave Fudge. It's delicious and ideal for eating in front of Netflix.


  • 400g caster sugar
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 5ml vanilla essence
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 100g butter (I use salted for that salted caramel flavour)


  1. Mix everything but the vanilla essence in a microwaveable bowl.
  2. Set your microwave to high and for two minutes. Keep adding ten seconds until the butter has melted.
  3. Pop it back into the microwave on high, but this time stop it to stir every two minutes.
  4. Once eight minutes has elapsed, stir in the vanilla essence.
  5. Pour the fudge mixture into a greased baking tray and leave to cool down.
  6. When at room temperature score into squares or cut into any shapes you like.

You can add in different flavours like cinnamon, Baileys*, chocolate or whatever else you like.

      I have done it in the microwave and it taste no different to the slow cooker one x

      • Anna S.

        was it with sugar too? Wondered if it might be crumbley fudge x

        • Leanne F.

          I didnt do it with the ingredients shown here. I used the same ingredients I do for slow cooker about 600g chocolate and a tin of condensed milk. Put all in a bowl zap 2 minutes stir then keep doing 1 min at time stirring in between (normally about 3 mins in my microwave, so 5 mins in total) until nice and glossy. Then put in another container let cool then fridge over night x

            Or for the coloured fudge they have in picture 600g of white choc and tin of caramel filling x

                          Just tastes like condensed milk, not proper fudge!

                          • Bella G.

                            Homemade fudge is delicious but im not sure I would do it in a microwave

                              what size tin of condensed milk did you use and was it sweetened or unsweetened? :-)
