Over the holidays I had been visiting family and my mother shared with me two fantastic fudge recipes. The first a Spicy Milk Chocolate Fudge and the other a Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge. Both recipes are quick and can be made in the microwave I thought I would have to share.
Spicy Milk Chocolate Fudge
2 cups Milk chocolate chips
1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 Tbsp Coco Powder
1/4 cup Butter
1can 14oz Sweetened condensed milk
1 Tsp Chili flakes
Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter or margarine in large microwaveable bowl.
Zap in microwave on medium until chips are melted, about 3-5 minute, stirring once or twice during cooking. Do not overcook, chunks of chips should still be evident and will with stirring. Stir in Chili flakes.
Pour into well-greased 8×8-inch glass baking dish, or what I prefer, cover your dish with parchment paper this method makes your fudge less greasy!
Allow to cool for approximately 45-60 minutes, remove from parchment paper and cut into desired size pieces.
Peanut Butter Fudge
3 3/4 Cups icing sugar
1 Cup butter
1 Cup peanut butter
1 Tsp vanilla
1/2 C Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 Tsp Butter
Combine butter and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and cook own high for 2 min stir and place back in microwave for 2 minutes
Slowly stir in icing sugar until mixture is hard to mix and looses its sheen.
One the mixture has thickened it should resemble the image below.
Place in 8×8 dish, smooth fudge evenly through our the pan and cover with parchment paper too cool for approximately 45-60 minutes
While your fudge is cooling, pour 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter into a microwaveable dish, cook on medium for approximately 2 minutes, be sure to stir the mixture so the chocolate doesn’t stick and burn. Once melted pour mixture into a Ziploc style baggie, cut the tip and pipe the chocolate over the top of your fudge in even lines.
To create a more blended effect, dip a knife into hot water and drag it through the chocolate lines, this will help blend the chocolate throughout the fudge.
I hope you enjoy both recipes!
