Fantasy Fudge

Yield: 36 small pieces of fudge

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 12 min

Such a super easy recipe for microwave fudge.


3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter
3 cups granulated white sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In large glass bowl, microwave the butter until it has melted. Add sugar and milk; whisk together well.

2. Microwave on high 3 minutes, then stir, then microwave on high 2 minutes more.

3. Mix well; scraping the sides of the bowl. Microwave on high for 3 more minutes, then stir and measure temp. You're looking for it to reach 234 degrees F. Microwave for 1 to 2 more minutes until 234 degrees is reached.

4. Remove from microwave and add chips. Stir vigorously until melted and smooth. Add the marshmallow creme and the vanilla extract; mix well until you no longer see any white streaks. Pour into greased 9-inch square pan, or 13x9-inch baking pan (depending on how thick you would like your fudge)- I used 9x9-inch for the photo.

5. Cool completely at room temperature. Cut into squares.


*If you are a nut-family, by all means add in 1 cup chopped walnuts!
*Keep fudge in a covered container. It should keep for a week or two when stored well.
*This recipe is gluten-free adaptable. Just be sure to use a brand of chocolate chips that is known to be GF.

*If you would prefer not to make this in the microwave, instructions for making it traditionally on the stove are on the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Creme jar.

    This looks fantastic and deceptive since it looks like ordinary chocolate fudge – awesome twist :)

    Sure, but add a little pinch of salt in there to compensate for the loss of flavor!

    I wouldn’t mess with it. If you want to make a PB fudge recipe, I’d look for one that was specifically for PB fudge!

    It’s sold in the baking aisle- called either Marshmallow Fluff or Marshmallow Creme. Ask the store manager if you can’t find it- it’s always stocked!

    I have been making this recipe for 30+ years. My mother had a hand written copy of this in her oldest recipe book. It is a wonderfully quick and easy way to make a ton of fudge, and a great way to get the kids involved. I know it worked for me and my son.

    the chocolate seized. It was a terrible plan. I am sure this works for others, but as usual, for me, microwave short cuts tend to not be worth the lost ingredients. I wouldn’t do this again.

    Made this tonight exactly according to the recipe, using fresh ingredients I’d purchased over the weekend. The chocolate seized on me, too. :(

    Thought this was a longer cook time then I’ve previously used. Should’ve went with my gut. Boiled over I’m the last 2 minutes. Made a mess in the microwave and the fudge is ruined.
