Easy Fudge Recipe
I like to participate in the different recipe swaps every week to get new ideas. These women have posted some awesome recipes. Most of the recipes posted are "from scratch" dishes that do not use convenience foods, which is healthier for us all! I hope you all enjoy this fudge recipe, especially with the holidays quickly approaching. It is an easy, quick and delicious fudge.
1 pound powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 stick butter
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend powdered sugar & cocoa in a microwave bowl. (I whisk to break down lumps in the pow. sugar.) Add salt, butter & milk----do not mix ingredients. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and blend: add vanilla & mix well. (mix pretty quickly, it starts to firm up) Pour into a wax paper line 8x8x2 pan. Freeze for 20 minutes or put in fridge for 1 hour. Cut into squares and enjoy.
I have tried to double this recipe and it is hard to mix it...so I would make it one pound at a time.
This recipe came from a Microwave Cooking School class that Mom & I took when she bought her first microwave in the 70's. Its a good recipe to teach a child...the only way to mess up this recipe is to not stir it enough and break up the powdered sugar. But even then it is still good, you just have little bits of powdered sugar.
