Speedy Oven Fudge
This rich fudge is a holiday favorite for me and my family. The recipe yields plenty of old-fashioned flavor with no-fuss preparation.

This is amazing - soooo easy! No boiling, no thermometers, and seriously.. it makes amazing fudge! I don't have a mixer, so I just whip it by hand, so I can get mine a little bit lumpy - I'll bet an electric mixer would do a fantastic job. I also made vanilla and mint fudge by omitting the cocoa and putting in vanilla and peppermint flavoring and green food coloring during the mixing phase. Delicious! I've tried several fudge recipes from allrecipes.com, and this is my favorite.Read More
I was definitely disappointed, my fudge didn't set. It was barely firm enough to cut, it would have been great for a fudge brownie frosting. I followed the directions exactly...maybe I did something wrong? I gave it 3 stars because I think there is hope with this recipe based on the other reviews.Read More

EASY RECIPE. I made this with and without the cocoa. I added extra vanilla without the cocoa to make it vanilla fudge. I liked this one the best. Either way it is a simple and delicious recipe.
Gosh, this fudge was fantastic! I was a bit apprehensive about putting all this ingredients into a pan and putting it in the oven, but it was delicious. This is not a creamy fudge, but a wonderful, flavorful, homemade tasting fudge. Best I've ever made. I have not made the vanilla variety, but I plan too. I also want to try and see how this comes out if you microwave it. Once again, delicious! You will not be disappointed!
This recipe was pretty good! I was a little confused throwing all of the recipes in a baking dish, but a worked out perfectly, and tasted really good too! I left out the nuts though, because we didn't have any. Without the nuts a was really rich! A great fudge recipe for Christmas! ~thanks for the recipe!
This is a GREAT recipe for a quick, "no fail", fudge. I made a half batch following instructions exactly then another half batch with a twist. I warmed about a tbsp of peanut butter then swirled it into the fudge before it set in the pan. YUM!
I took this to two parties, and people loved it! Fudge wasn't gritty at all, as can be the case in a cooked fudge. I did the first part in the microwave instead of the oven (it's summer! I was already hot!!) and it worked perfectly. I used Vahlrona cocoa powder which REALLY gave it a deep, rich flavor.

Wow! I've never made fudge but I've always heard people say how difficult it is to boil. This was SOOO easy. I didnt have butter so I used I cant believe its not butter sticks and its still great! and i only had a third cup cocoa powder left so used dark cocoa for the rest. This is bad good cause now i can make fudge all the time.
I'm sure this is a very good recipe, but I'm just an idiot. I put regular sugar in instead of powdered. So I put the finished product in the oven for a bit, to try to get the sugar to melt. It's still a bit grainy, and I'm sure it would be fabulous if I actually read the recipe.
This recipe was so simple to make and tastes just like the more complicated fudge that you cook on the stove.
Awesome and easy! I have 3 small children and not alot of time and this was the perfect way to have time to make fudge this christmas. Thanks for the recipe.
It's very good, and easy. I recommend sifting the powdered sugar, since you end up with lumps if you don't.
The flavor is chocolately and good, but it is more like frosting in flavor, than fudge. The textures is similar to fudge (maybe grainy like some other reviewers said, but not at all unpleasant), it just does not taste much like fudge. My husband and I had the same reaction to it. Not the common response here, but I have to be honest! It was easy and is tastey with coffee.
Amazing! I was short on time this Christmas and didn't get around to all my usual baking so made this fudge to gift to my friends and it was such a hit. The chocolate one had the best consistency and classic fudge tasty, I also did a maple walnut and vanilla cashew (which was my favorite). They turned out softer with the lack of cocoa and could probably benefit from some customizing but all in all this was some of the best fudge I've ever had and it really is that easy! UPDATE - after making this many times my review still stays at 5 stars. I threw it together in no time the other day, added a swirl of melted caramel and sprinkled it with sea salt and it was an amazing treat to share. Other variations: eggnog (in place of milk) + rum extract and fresh ground nutmeg; mint chips swirled through the fudge; peanut butter; really just get creative!
So easy! I used heavy cream in place of milk for extra creamy texture. I was fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe!
Turned out great! So much easier than stove top!
I was looking for an easy chocolate fudge recipe to make for the holidays. The first batch of this I made, I realized when I was getting started that I didn't have enough confectioner's sugar. I had to then make half a batch. So sad because it was so delicious! Just got done making the full batch this time and can't wait to eat some more! I'll be sending a plate of it with my Husband when he goes to work today to give the guys a treat :o)
I have not made fudge in years as I always hated having to do the candy thermometer, and drop the ball into water, thing. This recipe is amazing!! Was soooo easy to make. Literally took just a few minutes (other than the baking time). The flavor is soooo good. I really like my fudge a little bit more firm...almost hard....this comes out a little less than that after refrigerating. But the ease of the recipe, the flavor of the fudge, and the fact that it allowed me to make it again after so long definitly warrants giving this recipe 5 stars!! (I did take the reviewers suggestions and added the 1/4 cup butter and tblspn of flour, mixed together then added to the recipe mixture.)
I used a "lighter version" of butter the 1st time I made this & it didn't set. The 2nd time was quick, painless & delicious! I used the real thing...don't substitute light or less calorie butter.
I just made this for the first time and it is yummy. It seems to be setting up fine. My only problem is that I have little crunchy bits from the powdered sugar and cocoa. Other than that, it is great. I would not say that is just like real fudge, but it is very good. The texture seems to be more like the marshmallow cream kind. It was so easy though! If you have an extra pair of hands to help pour it into the mixing bowl, I would recommend recruiting them. It would be much easier since you have a hot sticky dish to hold with one hand while getting all the yumminess into the mixing bowl.
Easy to make - but not my favorite.
This recipe was so easy and the fudge was delicious! I used heavy cream to make it creamier! =)
First of all, I think that they should suggest stirring the cocoa in with the powdered sugar. I don't know, it was just missing something, maybe a dash of salt or needed more cocoa? It set up well but if you are looking for the typical fudge flavor - with that awesome chocolate flavor, this is not the recipe.
This was a super easy and delicious fudge recipe. The only tip I can add is to cut up the butter into roughly tablespoon sized pieces. It helps everything come together quicker in the oven. Used 1/2 cup of walnuts and it hardened up nicely.
Super easy! Glitch: when file transfered to My Recipes app on my iPhone it altered the order of ingredients, thus creating a problem with directions. However, even when I put ALL ingredients in the bowl and put it in the oven for 15 min. then took it out and beat one minute by hand, it still turned out GREAT! Can't wait to make it with grandchildren!
Made without nuts....this melts in your mouth. SOOOOO delicious!
This is an absolutely delicious recipe. I let the butter come to room temperature. I also sifted both the cocoa and the powdered sugar (separately) to preemptively eliminate lumps. Instead of stirring in nuts I stirred in a packet of Starbucks VIA Italian Roast. Mmmm...mocha fudge.
Fudge intimidates me, but I mastered this one. Cooked according to instructions and it came out perfectly. Poured it into a buttered 11x7 dish and it cuts beautifully. I forgot to add the vanilla, but it's still tasty. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper!
I am not sure why, but my fudge did not set properly. It is thicker than icing (and certainly tastes like icing), but is not the consistency of fudge. I followed the recipe exactly, so I am not sure why this happened.
Hands down the simplest, easiest fudge recipie out there! Makes super tasty fudge without fear of it going grainy and having that weird "burnt" aftertaste with some fudges. I used light cream as I was out of milk, other than that, I stuck to the recipie. Have to admit, it looked a little strange in the oven and going from glass dish to bowl was a bit of a challenge, but it was well worth it. My husband LOVED it and I will definately be making this recipie again now that the holiday season is here. Thanks for a great add! :) Cheers!
Tasted good, but despite following directions "to a T", mine didn't set.
Definitely speedy & perfect for that chocolate fix!
My first rating ever. I have made this so many time I lost count! I work as a firefighter, and they request this all the time. Thanks so much! I usually can't get my fudge to ever set up, but this one is so perfect even I can do it!
This recipe is very tasty!! I was a little unsure about the whole "bake without mixing" thing but it turned out alright! I had a little trouble with lumps, but I added heath bits into mine, so they're not noticeable anymore :)
The texture was oddly doughy before it set up. I think it could stand a bit more milk or possibly half and half or even cream . Also, it could stand a bit more chocolate flavor so maybe more cocoa. I normally have difficulty with boiled fudge setting up though and no problem there. This recipe is really easy but I think I'll experiment to see how it can be improved.
This was so easy.
I,like most everyone who made this,was very iffy about putting it in the oven.This was by far the BEST and EASIEST fudge I've ever made! Everyone should try this recipe.
Easy! Easy! Easy! Added in mint flavoring in. Since it's the holidays, may try adding crushed candy canes or peppermints. Will definitely be making more this season (and beyond)!
easy to make. I acccidently left it in oven about 8-10 min longer than recipe stated and set up firm and nicely. whisked with kitchen aid and added lots of toasted coconut. Delicious!
This fudge is AWESOME! It is sooooooooooo easy and I got rave reviews from everyone and comments like; "This fudge is delicious. This fudge is so much better then my mom's fudge, etc."
This is a really good recipe. Made a batch to give in Christmas goodie tins for family. They all enjoyed it. And I liked the ease of preparation and the results. It was smooth and creamy..not grainy.
Made this for Christmas, went over well.
Pretty good. It doesnt quite compare to the traditional stovetop fudge but still good for a quick fix.
Easiest fudge I've made to date... definitely will repeat. I did do as others suggested, and refrigerated overnight, just to be sure it was completely solid, due to it having to travel for quite a bit. Everyone raved about it. Thanks!
Quick and easy. A good fudge but I'd like it to be a little creamier.
This is the best easiest fudge recipe I've ever made. It took my husband and I 20 minutes to make it. I added 1/2 t of peppermint extract and mixed in crushed candy canes instead of nuts. It was very delicious!
I have used this recipe the past 3 Christmases and everybody requests this fudge. It tastes better than any other recipe I've tried (and spent more time making.)
Yummy! I made this recipe just as it is, minus the nuts because we are out. It turned out great:) I can't wait to try variations on flavors - I think a crushed candy cane version would be good for a Christmas twist.
warning: this is waaaay good and too easy for such an addictive treat! i used dark chocolate cocoa and swirled in some melted PB....it tasted like reeses cups, but creamier. like some other reviewers, i was concerned about the consistency but i was able to cut it into 1" squares and that's all i cared about. first pan was gone in less than 24 hours...off to make more!
I followed this recipe exactly. I've always made fudge the "hard" way...and was pleasantly surprised with the results of such a simple recipe! This is very rich, so a little goes a LONG way! My kids loved it and I will definitely make my fudge this way from now on. Thanks for the recipe!:)***UPDATE: I added a layer of peanut butter on top for a change...my kids and hubby devoured it. My kids said it was like peanut butter cups. Yummy!
I did this as the altered version that some reviewers mentioned. I omitted the Cocoa and added a tsp of peppermint... I tried three separate batches even adding extra powdered sugar in one to make up for the loss of the cocoa and never could get it to set enough to cut. I would love to know what I did wrong because it was so easy and the flavor was amazing.
I can tell this was supposed to be a delicious fudge. But I made the mistake of using frozen butter. I thought I thawed them in the microwave (30 secs) - but after half of an hour in the oven, I still felt the butter lumps underneath the powdered sugar, and saw that the sugar was beginning to crystallize. I took the mixture out of the oven and quickly lifted out the butter lumps and microwaved them til melting. Then proceeded with beating in the vanilla. The whole mixture was then filled with little crystallized sugar bits. So, the moral of the story is do not use frozen butter, I guess!
Very good and so easy.
Surprisingly it was good. Make sure you wait until it cools, it taste better. Great to have and easy good recipe.
THIS IS GREAT!! MADE YESTERDAY & PLAN TO MAKE AGAIN AS SOON AS I CAN GET MORE CONFECTIONERS SUGAR. I TOO WONDERED ABOUT NOT MIXING INGREDIANTS AT FIRST-BUT EVERYTHING WORKED OUT JUST AS BEVERLY SAID--YES IT IS RICH, BUT WHY MAKE ANYTHING CHOC. IF YOU CAN'T INDULGE ONCE IN A WHILE?! WILL BE PART OF OUR CHRISTMAS FESTIVITIES THIS YEAR FOR SURE. ALLRECIPES HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE COOKING SITE & REVIEWERS REMARKS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HELPFUL. THANKS FOR SHARING :>)
I tried making this 3 times and have not had any success... I can not get it to set. I tried the oven way, then the microwave, and even stove top. None of the ways worked. I ended up using in for Ice cream topping, and fudge frosting. Tastes wonderful though!! Hope everyone has better luck with this than I did.
It tastes good but mine would not harden.
This recipe was really simple and the fudge set amazingly. I followed it exactly and the general consensus at home was that it was a little too sweet
Very tasty when refrigerated but mine did not set without refrigerating.
I used soy milk and it turned out fantastic!
The taste was ok but it was grainy and soft. It was really easy but I have seen easier that tasted better.
easy to make and yummy!
This fudge had a great taste and a smooth consistancy. I tried it in the microwave, about 3 minutes to melt the butter, than mixed it for 2 minutes. I had trouble with it setting and getting firm so I stuck it in the fridge overnight. It still tastes great but I was hoping to get some tips on how to get it to set better! Any ideas?? Otherwise, a great recipe. :)
This is great! Easy to make and the grandkids love it. Next time, I'm going to throw some mini marshmellows in.
Good and very easy to make. The kids like to make this one.
I did not care for this recipe
I've never made such easy and yummy fudge. It does have a very slightly different texture than a traditional fudge, but I actually think this recipe is one of the smoothest fudges I've ever made. I changed the 2 tsp. vanilla to 1 tsp. mint extract and ate the entire recipe myself! Be careful with this one :)
I did this in microwave just until butter was melted, then did the rest as directed in recipe. It is really good, tastes like old fashioned home made fudge only creamier! Its so good its BAD because you can have fudge in about 5 minutes!!
