Makes 36 pieces

I decided to try my hand at making fudge in the microwave, and the results are fantastic! You find it takes a fraction of the time, and you can never harm yourself.

Ingredients
  • 395g sweetened condensed milk
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 200g dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp golden syrup
  • 180g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tsp natural vanilla paste
Instructions

1 Combine the sweetened condensed milk, butter, sugar and syrup in a microwave-proof bowl and cook on medium-high power for 7 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

2 Mix in the chocolate and vanilla and stir until combined, then beat well until glossy. Spoon into a lined 17cm x 27cm slice pan and flatten. Set aside to cool, then cover with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour until firm. Cut into 36 pieces.

COOK”S NOTE: this recipe was cooked in a 900W microwave on 70% power.
