Strawberry Chocolate Microwave Fudge

(36 pieces)

1 tin (395g /14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

400g dark chocolate (14 oz)

10 drops strawberry essence

10g freeze dried strawberry pieces (0,4 oz)

Strawberry Chocolate Microwave Fudge - Delicious cheats fudge! Only four ingredients and six minutes in the microwave. The perfect homemade present and dinner party surprise.

 

METHOD:

1. Line a 20 x 20 cm baking dish with baking paper or greaseproof paper (8 x 8 inch).

1. Empty the tin of sweetened condensed milk into a microwavable container (with a lid) – preferably at least 1.25 L (1 1/4 quart).

2. Break up the chocolate and add it to the condensed milk – don’t stir.

3. Microwave on full effect for 1 1/2 minutes, then stir.

4. Microwave on full effect for another 1 1/2 minutes, then stir.

5. Microwave for an additional three minutes, stirring every minute.

(So 6 minutes in the microwave in total)

After the fifth minute, you should notice that the texture has changed slightly. The fudge starts to get bubbles around the edges, and thicken, it should get almost a mousse like consistency. Once you stir through, it will be smooth again, and you can put it back in the microwave for that last minute.

Note! Depending on your microwave, your fudge may reach this ‘bubbly mousse’ consistency earlier or later. Whenever it happens – you only need one more minute once you’ve stirred it through. And keep an eye on the lid during the last minute. During this time the mix will rise considerably, if you notice the lid about to be knocked off, take it out and stir it through, then you can put it back again for the remaining time.

6. Add 10 drops of strawberry essence, and stir until it’s thoroughly mixed.

7. Pour the fudge into the pre-prepared baking dish, cover and cool in the fridge for 10 minutes, sprinkle generously with freeze dried strawberry pieces and back in the fridge.

8. After a couple of hours (or overnight) you can lift the baking paper and fudge out of the tray and use a sharp knife to cut it into 36 pieces.

…Strawberry Chocolate Microwave Fudge – Voila!

  1. Microwave fudge? Wow! This looks and sounds so delicious. I think I gain 5 pounds every time I come to your blog just by drooling over the stunning pics.

  2. This looks lovely. I love the idea of adding freeze dried strawberry pieces. So pretty! Any idea how I could make this without a microwave? I don’t own one (yes, I am that in that 1% of people who don’t!) Eb x

    • Well, I know there are lots of different fudge recipe’s available without a microwave too – they just take a little while longer to make…
      We’re one of the 1% of people without a TV 😉

  3. Wow, that fudge looks amazing and I bet that it tastes just as good! Just one question: you said the recipe is lactose and gluten free. Is condensed milk lactose free? If yes, I had no idea!! I’ve always just ignored recipes with condensed milk in them, thinking it cannot be replaced with anything lactose free..

  4. You had me at ‘microwave’. And did you say 6 minutes? This looks so totally yummy and you can’t beat a little instant gratification now and then.

    I actually have THE most delicious fudge sitting in my fridge right now, sadly I didn’t make it but it’s homemade by a company called Yum Yum Tree… have you heard of them? They do a lot of trade shows and I always find myself wandering over to their stall. Fudge is a helluva drug! 😉
