  • “Wonderful! I am terrible with cooking candy to a certain temperature on the stove, so I was glad to find this recipe! This tastes just wonderful and I love how firm it gets at room temperature. I have a new 1800 watt microwave, and I cooked the butter mixture for a total of 9 minutes, stirring 3 or 4 times. I used 1% milk instead of evaporated. And instead of all chocolate chips, I used some Reese’s peanut butter chips and some semi-sweet chocolate. (You really need a little more PB than chocolate for a great taste.) Delicious fudge!”

  • “i followed the directions exactly, but when i added the chocolate .. the whole thing turned in to a lump of chocolate sand – no moisture what-so-ever… what did I do wrong?”

  • “I didn’t find this fudge as creamy as other recipes I’ve tried.My favorite recipe so far from Zaar is #48600.I also didn’t find this recipe that much easier than stovetop.To me, it was about the same.Thanks for posting!”

  • “I will never go back to the traditional Fantasy Fudge recipe. This fudge is fabulous and so quick and easy. Made a batch and had very little left after our neighbors tasted it. they kept coming back for more. I used milk choc chips as we don’t care for too much chocolate. Thank you so much for sharing.”

  • “At first I thought this was going to be grainy, even though I followed the directions to a “T” (unusual for me!). However, once it had cooled enough to cut into squares and I got to try it, I found it was EXACTLY like the stovetop version I used to sweat and slave over–but no more! This is definitely a winner! Thanks so much for posting, Joyce! UPDATE: this has been getting very good reviews from everyone who has tried it–thanks again!”

  • “I too used to make this on the stove and several years ago a friend told me how to do it in the microwave.If you didn’t know any difference people would think you cooked it on the stove.You can make several batches in the time it takes to make one.Great recipe.”

  • “I have made this on the stove before and I would say that the microwave makes it turn out better!This fudge is the perfect consistency and the taste is out of this world.I will never make it on the stove again.Thanks so much!KCShell”

  • “This is essentially the same recipe my husband uses on the stove.This is easier, and equally delicious.However, I found it made a 9″ by 9″ pan rather than 9″ by 13″.I recommend highly.”

  • “Much easier than stove-top fudge and tastes just as good! I forgot to let the butter/milk/sugar mixture cool down before adding the chocolate chips so they kind of ‘seized up’ and resulted in a less smooth fudge, but it still tasted great even if it didn’t look as pretty. My microwave is 1200w, perhaps more powerful than the original cook times were designed for; next time I’ll try reducing either the cook time or the power level just a bit. But what a fun thing to ‘have’ to experiment on. ;o) Thanks for posting!”

  • “This worked great for me when I had to make fudge in work where there is no stove-top.I made vanilla using white chocolate chips and it came out great.It came out a tiny bit firmer than when I make it on the stove, so I think I’ll take a minute or so off of the cooking time and see how it sets up.Thanks for posting this…I’m really thrilled it worked for me, as microwaves are so different I was worried!”

  • “I grew up eating this fudge (recipe) every Christmas-though my mom made it on the stove.I found this (microwave)recipe years ago and only make it this way now… so much easier …and even my kids like to help because its not too hard.its is YUMMY”

  • “very easy to use. make great fudge fast”

  • “I made this yesterday. Easy recipe plus I had all the ingredients. I usually make fudge on the stove, but tried this recipe since I misplaced my candy thermometer. Thanks for the recipe…”
