This easy fudge recipe is made without a saucepan or candy thermometer. One bowl and the microwave is all that is needed to make creamy, smooth fudge.
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
1/4 cup milk
1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Line 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Butter foil.
Combine butter, milk and chocolate chips in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 2-3 minutes or until butter and chocolate chips are melted.
Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Spread into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate 1-1 1/2 hours or until firm. Lift fudge from pan using foil ends; cut into squares.
To give fudge as a gift, place in new baking pan and wrap with decorative paper or colored food wrap.

This stuff is fantastic! So easy if you're craving fudge and need a quick fix. And it's great to bring for a potluck or give as a gift too. I've made it several times but had mixed results a couple times. For those who had trouble with the recipe, I think the secret is to remove and thoroughly stir the mixture several times throughout the 2-3 minute melting time. This ensures the butter is blended in so it doesn't end up sitting on the top after the chips are melted. Enjoy!
The recipe is perhaps a little too sweet. I may try reducing the amount of sugar slightly (say a 1/2 cup less) and see how it tastes.
I followed the directions as written and it turned out horribly. There was too much butter; it was on top and bottom of fudge when removed from refrigerator. And, the taste....
