Recipe for microwave fudge:
3 cups of milk or dark chocolate bits (roughly 500g)
1 tin condensed milk
1/4 cup of butter
Step 1. Microwave all ingredients for 3-5mins, stopping to stir occasionally.
Step 2. Grease or line a deep tray/dish with baking paper and pour in the mix.
Step 3. Refrigerate.
Step 4. Once firm, cut into squares.
(Note from Bec: in Step 2, I like to dust the baking paper with cacao powder and then dust the squares again once cut in Step 4. It helps stop them from immediately melting back into each other. You can also add nuts and dried fruit or spices if you want to get experimental. Make sure you store this in the fridge whenever possible, as it has a low melting point!)
