Easy Microwave Fudge (No Fail)

adapted from: Nicole W.


2 1/4 c. chocolate chips 

1 square (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate 

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk

2 Tbl. butter

1 tsp. vanilla extract

any other flavorings (orange, rum, peppermint, coconut, almond, raspberry, etc.)

chopped nuts, opt.

marshmallows, opt.


In a large microwave-safe dish add chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter.  Microwave for about 3-5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted.  Stir with a wooden spoon until combined.  Add vanilla and any other flavorings.  Stir until very smooth and creamy.  Add chopped nuts and/or marshmallows, if adding.  Spread into a greased 8x8 casserole dish.  Let set, then cut into squares.  


Jenn's Notes: I use milk chocolate chips and I use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of unsweetened chocolate.  I usually start with 1 tsp. of the extra flavoring, then I taste and add more as needed.  Sometimes I make the full batch, add the vanilla and then divide it between two bowls and add one flavoring to one and another flavoring to the other.  Next time, I want to try adding marshmallows, because Nicole said it is amazing with them.
