To say this fudge recipe is simple is an understatement.
I love to make this easy fudge over more traditional fudge because honestly…I don’t run the risk of burning this one. Know what I mean? If you’ve ever made real fudge, you feel my pain. 😉
Another reason to love it is that it’s made in just a matter of minutes and spends most of the time solidifying in the refrigerator.
You can make this easy fudge recipe two different ways:
- in a saucepan
- in a microwave
Either way will be so quick you won’t believe it.
