Easy-to-make-and-tastes-amazing fudge, but that's a pretty long title so we just call it 3-Minute Fudge. It's only 3 minutes to cook and 3 ingredients! Great to cut up and put in ice cream.

Spoiler Alert: This takes longer than three minutes.;) If you're pressed for time can't find or don't have a candy thermometer it's a great no-fail fudge recipe to have on hand. I've been making a version of this for years with excellent results. You don't have to stick to just chocolate either - this will work with any "chip" flavor you have. Today I made peanut butter and dark chocolate and I was about to make a pan of white chocolate when disaster struck and I dropped my last can of condensed milk on the floor. Bummer. That must have been the Universe intervening to save my poor thighs! If you want this to feel extra fancy use a higher quality chocolate chip like Ghiradelli to give a better depth of flavor. You can also top with chopped nuts festive candies or sprinkles or some unmelted chocolate chips. Get creative. ProTip: Skip the step where you grease the pan. Just line with a single piece of aluminum foil instead (grease it with cooking spray if you want this to be extra simple.) and when it's time to serve the fudge just lift the entire thing out of the pan peel off the foil and cut into squares. Voila! Clean up is easier now too. I skip the 1 oz square and just use extra chips. Remember to work quickly once you've removed your mixture from the microwave. It's going to thicken up & get ooey-gooey very fast so you need to get it smooth & spread it into the pan immediately. The last thing I've found is that this fudge does best when kept in the fridge.

I added 2 1/2 cups of a mixture of walnuts and pecans. And put in frig - it set in no time. I used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao bittersweet chocolate chips. I love dark chocolate especially with nuts and a glass of red wine! It was perfect for my taste. Read More

Very good! I have made many times. You can add walnuts peanuts and even add mini peanut butter cups to the mixture right before pouring fudge into pan!! I am going to add some chopped candy canes to the fudge I make for Christmas. Read More

I love this recipe. I used semi-sweet mini morsels and when done added one teaspoon of orange extract. Read More

I've been making this fudge for years. I do add a tsp of vanilla and since I'm into instant gratification I simply spread it out on a piece of waxed paper on a cutting board and stick it in the freezer for a few minutes to harden (or on the back porch in the winter d; )). Read More

I was hesitant to try the recipe at first but was super surprised. I waited a couple of hours and then put the pan into the fridge to cool used parchment paper on the bottom of the pan so it was easy to remove. Cut it into 1" squares and have to say not a single person said they didn't like it. In fact one of the ladies works in a chocolate store and she even said it was awesome. I'm just heading to make a second batch now. This will be on my list of goodies for Christmas time. Thanks a bunch for submitting a super easy and really yummy recipe!!! Read More
