Microwave Chocolate Fudge

I was in the mood for something sweet this afternoon. We had some cocoa and icing sugar left over from another baking adventure and I remembered my mother used to make easy microwave fudge with those ingredients, so I gave it a shot.

I found this set of recipes and modified the last one since it was the most basic. Here is how I did it.

    • 2 cups icing sugar
    • 1/4 cup cocoa
    • 1 tablespoon milk
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 

    1. Combine icing sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter.

    Mashing in the butter with the icing sugar, milk and cocoa.

    2. Microwave on high power until butter is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
    3. Stir until smooth. Blend in vanilla (and some nuts if you have them).
    4. Spread into a buttered pan.

    The chocolate mixture, ready to set

    5. Refrigerate for 2 hours (or until cool) and cut into squares.

    Mmmmmmmmm fudge!

    6. Eat and enjoy!

    It should keep in the fridge for about a week... Unless of course you eat it all before your wife gets home from vacation. :)
