I hate making fudge.
It is time consuming and painful.
So I just refused to make it.
Until a few years ago.
I discovered a recipe online for microwave fudge. I had my doubts. Surely you can't make fudge in the microwave. At least, not fudge that looks and tastes like fudge. Boy was I wrong!
I am not sure why more people don't make their fudge this way. I'll be honest. The consistency/texture isn't exactly like what you may be used to, but it is fudge-like and tastes great! And with as easy as it is, why WOULDN'T you make fudge this way?
I don't have a picture. Primarily because I'm too lazy to go to the fridge and take a picture!
Ready for the recipe?
1 12oz package chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)

Pour chocolate chips and milk into microwave-safe container. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir until smooth. Add flavor of choice, pour into square pan and cool in fridge for 2-3 hours.
2 tsp almond extract (you can add 1/4-1/2 cup almonds if you want)
use mint chips in place of milk/semi-sweet OR 1-2 tsp mint extract

Almond Joy is my favorite!
