Fast Fudge, Quick Easy Recipe, Make Today – Gift Tonight!
You can make this in about 5 minutes. After 2 hours in the fridge, your fudge will be firm enough to cut, wrap and present as a gift! Talk about last minute gift ideas, it doesn’t get much easier than this. Make three batches, one for surprise guests to your home, one for tonight’s Host or Hostess and an extra for that dear one you forgot to remember! Join me in the kitchen in this California Living video for a few extra tips or to keep you company along the way.
Here’s what you need (makes one batch):
- 1 box of powdered sugar (16 oz) Tip: Sift after measuring to avoid lumps in your fudge.
- 1 stick of butter (4 oz)
- 1/2 cup of cocoa
- 1/4 cup milk
That’s it! Put ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. No need to stir, although if you have a sifter, use it to break up any lumps in the powdered sugar. It will save you stirring time later.
Place the bowl in the microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. The butter should be completely melted. Stir (this takes less than a minute – especially if you’ve sifted the powdered sugar). Butter an 8″ square baking dish (I use a glass dish). Pop in the refrigerator for 2 hours or longer.
Remove from fridge. Use a warm knife to cut into squares. Wrap and go!
