Two-Ingredient Microwave Fudge

Seriously, if this isn’t the simplest fudge you have ever encountered, I don’t know how I can help you. 

This one recipe inspired me to think about starting up a new section of this blog, called Kitchen Easy. 

Get it? It rhymes and it sounds like Kitchen Cici! Oh come on, don’t be stingy with your applause.

Anyway, fudge: the characteristic aroma, the silky smoothness, and the perfect 50-50 balance of sugar and guilt. It’s one of my favorite chocolate delectables.

But see, the problem is that fudge is often overcomplicated: you’ll find various recipes calling for magical ingredients such as marshmallow creme, this thing called evaporated milk, a probably illegal dose of corn syrup, and a significant and scary amount of butter, leading you to wonder how this will affect your heart, your health, and your life, and making you wonder what other questionable choices you’ve made.

That’s a dangerous road on a slippery slope. Let’s not descend to the lair of midnight snacks and guilty pleasures.

Instead, let’s sit here with this fudge recipe in one hand and a ready spoon in the other.

Two-Ingredient Microwave Fudge

An easy fudge recipe. Super super easy. The definition of easy. Basically the easiest recipe ever. 


14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
12oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts (optional)


1. Pour all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Microwave until the chips melt, about 1 minute. Stir until smooth.

3. Set in fridge. After about 2 hours of solidifying, take out and cut into the geometric shape of your choice.

Alternatively, skip the last step. Save time and energy by using an acceptable eating utensil and eating the entire thing by yourself.

Everyone has guilty pleasures. Mine happens to involve chocolate.

      It tastes 100 times better but you’ll have to try that for yourself…!

  3. Ooooh I could totally do different flavor combos…the possibilities are endless!! One question though: What are your thoughts on doing this with coconut milk (plus a sweetener)? Sweetened condensed milk makes me throw up, it’s extremely no bueno for my tummy.

    1. Kitchen Cici says:

      Oh interesting idea! The only thing is that coconut milk probably isn’t condensed enough to make a thick fudge… So perhaps you could use condensed coconut milk (if you can find it!). But I’ve also seen that some people make their own condensed coconut milk by heating regular coconut milk on the stovetop to evaporate off half of the liquid (this takes ~40 minutes). Hope this helps!!

      1. Thank you! Found tons of recipes, I’m totally trying it. Won’t be as simple as your fudge in the end, but I bet it’ll be worth it.

      2. Anita says:

        If you google homemade recipe for sweetened condensed milk (there are tons of them). Substitute milk for coconut milk.

      3. Ok, so I made the condensed coconut milk, sweetened with honey, and added some slivers of orange peel for flavor. What I made was DELICIOUS but did not set like fudge. I can’t cut it into pieces and share with people, which means I obviously I have to eat it with a spoon all by myself. My coworker suggested I try to turn it into truffles. It would also be awesome on top of like a cheesecake or something. Or I could stick with option 1 and eat it all by myself with a spoon…

      4. Kitchen Cici says:

        Haha option 1 is always good! Perhaps you should try it with more chocolate chips? That solidifies the final product a tad more. Props to you for trying this out!

        We did this using coconut cream (refrigerate a can of coconut milk at least 24 hours and skim the cream off the top). Left at room temperature for an hour or so it makes a good topping for ice cream. Stiffens up inthe refrigerator and not so overpoweringly sweet as it is with sweetened condensed milk.

      6. Cici says:

        Sounds awesome!

  4. Melissa says:

    Reblogged this on Someone's in the Kitchen and commented:
    Mmmm….. just remember, Chocolate is derived from the seeds of a fleshy pod from the fruit of the cacao tree. The scientific name of the cacao tree is Theobroma cacao, which means “food of the Gods” and it is classified as a vegetable. There for it is good for you 🙂

  10. I’m so giving this a go next weekend! I love a simple recipe 🙂

    Hi! Just wondering if you can substitute butterscotch chips for chocolate chips to make butterscotch fudge?

    1. Cici says:

      Great question – I don’t think it’d be a problem, but I’d suggest making a small batch to see what happens!

Tell me somethin'
