Microwave Chocolate Fudge
This recipe comes from a cookbook from my old middle school, put together as a fundraiser.
3 1/2 cups icing sugar (you can sift it if you like, I don't usually bother)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
In a large microwavable bowl (I use my 8 cup glass measuring cup) stir together the icing sugar, cocoa, salt, milk and vanilla. Top it with the 1/2 cup of margarine.
|Before putting it in the microwave|
|After 2 minutes in the microwave and a little stir. |
I put it back in for 30 seconds, as some of the margarine was still firm.
You can also try out some variations of this fudge, adding peppermint extract to give it a minty flavour, sprinkling nuts on top instead of mixing them in, etc. It's all up to you!
