Ingredients For Microwave Malteser Fudge

Can you believe this recipe needs only 3 ingredients!? Just 3!!!!

  • dark chocolate (the higher the % of cocoa the harder the fudge will set – chocolate melts will set to a soft fudge)
  • sweetened condensed milk (always use full fat sweetened condensed milk – not skim as it won’t set firm enough)
  • Maltesers (or any malted milk balls like Whoppers)

How To Make Malteser Fudge In The Microwave

After making fudge in the microwave, I will never, ever go back to making fudge on the stovetop. Microwave fudge recipes are SO easy and they take just a few minutes! 

The 2 basic ingredients for a microwave fudge recipe are: chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. That’s it!! And then it’s just a matter of flavouring the fudge with all the yummy add-ins (likeBaileys Irish Cream, Oreos, cranberries and pistachios, or Tim Tams!)

To make our Microwave Malteser Fudge, you simply melt the dark chocolate and sweetened condensed milk in the microwave until melted (*see printable recipe card below for temperatures and cooking time).

Notes

RECIPE NOTES
Chocolate - The higher the cocoa % in the dark chocolate, the harder the fudge will set. If using dark chocolate melts, this will set to a soft fudge consistency. If using a high cocoa % dark chocolate, it will set slightly firmer. 
Maltesers - I used Maltesers for this recipe which are chocolate coated malted milk balls. You can use any brand you like (such as Whoppers).
Microwave - cooking time will vary slightly depending on the wattage of your microwave. Cook the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk on 50% power for 2-3 minutes or until completely melted. 
Storage - As this fudge is soft, it needs to be kept in the fridge. It can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 weeks.
