Easiest Fudge in the World

Linda Larsen
Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk in this recipe, not evaporated milk - that's a common mistake. It is probably the easiest recipe in the world, let alone the easiest fudge recipe, thus the name!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: Makes about 2 pounds candy


  • 1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, if desired


Place chips and milk in microwave safe bowl. (You can use just the one package of semisweet chocolate chips, or add the milk chocolate chips for a fudge that is slightly sweeter and creamier.)

Microwave on medium power for 2-3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Microwave, stirring at 1 minutes intervals, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth and thick. Stir in butter and cream until combined.

Pour into greased 8" square pan and cool. You can also melt the chips and milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat.

You can add just about anything to this easy recipe. Stir in a cup of chopped nuts, add a cup of marshmallows after the cooking time is done, stir in chopped dried fruit or some white chocolate chips. Have fun with the recipe!

Try this, it is absolutely scrumptious!! Tastes like you went on vacation to one of those great places with fudge shops. Super easy and super delicious!
