87. Microwave Chocolate Fudge

From 2002 Southern Living Annual Recipes

I think my co-workers are loving this challenge...brought in another treat for them today with this recipe.

The SL site said, "The milk chocolate morsels give this fudge a Tootsie Roll-like flavor," and I can see that. They had a nice chewy texture with a creaminess, as well. I think it's the milk chocolate that makes these not as rich, which I enjoy. I'll add nuts on the next batch I make.

I'm not a "baker," so I especially enjoyed how easy these were to make by using the microwave.

3 cups milk chocolate morsels

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces

Combine all ingredients in a 2-quart glass bowl. Microwave chocolate mixture at MEDIUM (50% power) 5 minutes, stirring at 1 1/2-minute intervals. Pour into a greased 8-inch square dish. Cover and chill 8 hours; cut into 1 1/2-inch squares. Store in refrigerator.

Wow, this sounds like something I could do. I wonder if you can throw in some other sorts of flavors like white chocolate or peanut morsels?!

Mmmm... it's like a bag of Tootsie Rolls and a giant container of chocolate icing got together and had babies...delectable little fudge babies!
