My Mom’s recipe for Microwave Fudge is the best, most creamy and dreamy fudge you’ll ever make. It’s foolproof and customizable for gift giving.
My Mom’s Microwave Fudge was one of my favorite treats at the holidays. In going through her recipe cards this year, it made my must-make pile. Her recipe includes milk, but for some reason she didn’t include an amount. If I haven’t said it here before, please make sure you make favorite family recipes alongside your loved ones while they are still living. Because once they’re gone, you might be left with a mystery. Cooking and baking are my favorite ways to remember and try to connect with my Mom and Grandma. I miss them both, but at least their memory lives on in their recipes. And thankfully for you, the internet provided me with the correct amount of milk for this microwave fudge recipe.
