Sweet Tooth? How about homemade fudge in minutes?

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 20 - 2011

No, you’re not dreaming… I’m talking sensuously sweet, toothache-inducing crumbly fudge flavoured just how you like it in under 10 minutes!

Here’s some I made earlier…

You don’t need a sugar thermometer or skills that Fanny Cradock would be proud of you just need a microwave and a handful of ingredients.

Homemade Microwave Baileys Fudge!

397g Tin of Condensed Milk
125g Butter
250g Caster Sugar
250g Soft Brown Sugar

1 1/2tsp Vanilla extract
2 tbsp Baileys

1. Grab the largest microwaveable bowl in the kitchen and add the condensed milk, butter and sugars.  No need to mix just ensure that the container is LARGE because the contents are going to bubble up furiously and splattered fudge mix is way not cool to clean off.

2. For a 900W microwave, cook the mixture on full power for 9 minutes, removing the bowl for stirring every 3 minutes.  If your microwave has a lower wattage you’ll need to cook the mixture for longer.  Add 1 minute of cooking time for every 50W less power.

3. Once the cooking time has finished, add in the vanilla extract and Baileys and beat the mixture until it begins to look smooth and glossy.

4. Transfer the fudge mixture into a 9″ square tin to cool.  You can be smart and line the tin with greaseproof paper to prevent sticking or just hook it out crumbled bits and all like I do.  Once the mixture has cooled to room temperature, you can pop it in the fridge for a firmer set if required.

One of the charms (there are many) of homemade fudge is the limitless scope for wonderful flavours… I’m thinking chocolate & mint for my next batch, or maybe peanut butter or mmmmm honey and walnut?!

If you were to whip up a batch of fudge… what would be your flavour of choice?

    OH. MY. GOD.

    Charlotte, you are a woman very much after my own heart. Wish I had a blimmin’ microwave. ARGH.

  2. Grace London says:

    mmm fuuuuuudge.

    We don’t have a microwave, but this is making me re-think my ‘don’t need a microwave’ stance.

  3. ^^ How do you two survive without microwaves? OMG.

    My microwave is as essential as like, oxygen.

    • Grace London says:

      It’s getting harder. There’s this, and Bliss have repackaged their Poetic Waxing into a kit that requires a microwave rather than a pan of boiling water.

      For actual food, I tend to make tomato based pasta/rice sauces mostly, and I do those on the stove-top.

      • Ahhh. Yeah, I do the same with tomato sauces, but don’t you have some left over? I just find it really quick and easy to put some rice in a microwave bowl, plop some sauce on top and set it on high for three minutes. I’m lazy, though!

  4. Dempeaux says:

    This looks amazing! I’m so hungry at the moment, and I love fudge! But I don’t cook…hmmm…dilemma…

  5. mmmmm! I love fudge, and I love Baileys – unbeatable combo.

  6. Anitacska says:

    I couldn’t live without my microwave. This Bailey’s flavoured fudge sounds lovely. Wish I wasn’t on a diet though. Worst is, I have hardly lost any weight, so makes me wonder why I even bother… :S

  7. Chelsea says:

    My decision to diet now hates you! I’d love to try this but would probably make it explode into a fudge catastrophe. This reminds me of a shop in Rochester (Kent) that does so many different varieties of fudge, I feel fat just thinking about it.

  8. nicoletta says:

    Oh my goodness what an amazing quick way to make fudge. I have bookmarked this page and will be trying it out but not till after my holiday as fudge is a serious love of mine. Thanks for this xx

  9. Annalise says:

    Ahh, think I’ll be adding this in to my recipe folder. Looks delicious! x

  10. Julia says:

    I want to try this 🙂 Hmm let’s see if I really do hehehe

  11. OMG. That looks amazing. I didn’t even know you could make fudge in the microwave. That’s the best thing I’ve learned today!

    I have to try it and I think I’ll be trying amaretto as my first flavour.

    *drools*

  12. Eden-Avalon says:

    …YES! This is going in the microwave right now! Woo!

  13. gio says:

    Mmm that looks delicious!

  14. Katherine says:

    hand-mad fudge is possibly the best sustance known to man… we have a lovely man that had a shop near us in Castleton boasting 115 different varieties – they are gorgeous! Coffee’s a good one, but I can’t wait for number 116…. stout and dark chocolate 🙂

  15. Alexa says:

    This is awesome! Do you have to use Baileys in it or is just an added extra for flavour? xxx

  16. konni says:

    I am SO making this.

  17. Gemx says:

    😮 Don’t tell me how to make fudge, I’ll never make anything else! xx

  18. Alexa says:

    I could have sworn I pressed submit…Clearly not.

    Anyway…This is awesome. Is the Baileys essential or is it just for flavouring? xxx

  19. Hannah says:

    Yay! You blogged it. I am so making this as soon as I get time. I shouldn’t really eat fudge but… NOM!
    Also – what September Lena said – HOW can people live without microwaves?? If you are, you shouldn’t be! 🙂
    xxxx

  20. Sydney says:

    Oh my, these look amazing.
    You’re making me crave Bailey’s fudge at 11:20pm!!

    Going to have to give this recipe a go… yummer.

  21. Andrea says:

    I don’t have a microwave! 🙁

  22. Oh my I may have to go buy the ingredients like, now!

  23. For all those worried about no micro I don’t see why this wouldn’t work by heating gently in a pan?

  24. Kim says:

    That looks absolutely scrumptious! I had no idea it could be done in the microwave. When I made it, I stood over the hob for what felt like forever haha. I’ll definitely give this a go next weekend! xxx

  25. Bailey says:

    What a fast recipe (and easy too!) I do love me some Bailey’s 😀

  26. Rachel says:

    Aaaarrrgghh, after numerous hours at room temp & in the fridge, it didn’t set. After some research on Google it seems I didn’t get it hot enough for long enough, needs to go frothy or some such technical jargon. I’ll try again tomorrow 🙂

  27. Lilmiznutcase says:

    In a two fingers up to dieting, I have made this with Hazelnut Bailey’s (we have rather a lot of the stuff thanks to the mother in law being back on the wagon). I am now licking then bowl.

  28. WeezyPops says:

    Wowweeeee is all I can say!! Literally eating this off the spoon right now…. it is amaaaaazing!!! So so quick and easy and just wow!! Never making fudge in a pan again….. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!! Make this now!!!!

  29. Kelly says:

    So i made this last night – it didn’t turn out – looks more like soft toffee….booooo I didn’t like the instruction of beat until smooth and glossy – it took like 2 mins to look like that so i stopped – maybe not long enough??? any suggestions – cause i would like to try again – and i will probably eat the soft toffee stuff….lol

  30. Eleanor says:

    Oh, wow, I’ve just made this for Christmas and it is absolutely delicious! My daughter in law loves Baileys, so this will be an extra treat for her.
    I didn’t use a sugar thermometer – surely the whole idea of making microwave fudge is to avoid the necessity for this – and it set perfectly. Bought a ginormous plastic bowl specially. Chocolate microwave fudge coming next.
    If you’ve had problems you just haven’t nuked it long enough. The recipe me tions adjusting times for different wattages. Mine is 800, so cooked it for eleven minutes.
