Microwave Tim Tam & Milo Fudge

With Australia Day just around the corner, I thought I better make a super Australian recipe! Hehe well actually if I’m telling the truth, I just wanted an excuse to make fudge… but this is a great excuse, right?!!

Microwave Tim Tam & Milo Fudge

I discovered the joys of microwave fudge about a year ago and haven’t looked back. I used to always muck around making my fudge with glucose syrup – and while you get a fantastic fudge as a result, it’s a fair pain in the bum! And so, when I started making fudge in the microwave with just condensed milk and chocolate, I knew I could never, ever go back to the old way.

Microwave Tim Tam & Milo Fudge

This Microwave Tim Tam & Milo Fudge takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. Simply melt a tin of condensed milk and chocolate melts in the microwave, stir through a packet of chopped Tim Tams and 1/2 cup of Milo (or any malted milk powder). Pour into a prepared tin and smooth down the top with a spoon. Pop it into the fridge to set (preferably while you kick back, pour yourself a cuppa and congratulate yourself on making a delicious fudge in only a couple of minutes). Yum!

You can use any variety of Tim Tams that you like. For this recipe, I just went with the plain and simple classic version. You’ll notice that the heat from the fudge will melt some of the chocolate off the biscuits, but don’t worry – you’ll still have chunks of biscuit that remain.

  1. Oh my gosh, YES! This looks like a total winner to me! I don’t buy Milo very often, but when I do, I really enjoy it, and seriously have to stop myself from eating way too much of it. I think I’d have to say that it’s actually my favourite iconic Australian food. I’m always reminded of having it after school as a kid. When my Mum wasn’t looking my brother and I would pile so much Milo into our cups, it was ridiculous (goodness only knows how we both still have all our teeth!!). Then just a tiny bit of milk and the creation was complete! They were the good old days. Now I think I’d be sick if I ate that much Milo by itself all at once, but I could most DEFINITELY go for a slice of this!! 😀

  2. WANT! Gorgeous Lucy! You can’t get any more Australian or any more delicious than that!!!

  3. sounds like delicious fudge – I have only ever made fudge with condensed milk as the alternatives always look too fussy and besides who doesn’t love condensed milk in everything

  4. Darlene says:

    What would one use if they’re not from Australia? What are Milo and Tim Tams? Do you know of a good substitute?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Milo is a malted milk drink (so you can substitute for any brand). Tim Tam biscuits can be bought in the US from Amazon, Target or World Market. Or in the UK, they are similar to penguin biscuits. 🙂

      Thanks lovely!

  5. Oh my goodness Lucy, this sounds divine. I hate making fudge with all the timing and candy thermometers but I am a doyenne of the microwave. And I LOVE milo.

  6. Jenny says:

    Hi Lucy, love the website – I am recent inductee! I made this your way first (yum) and then again using white Tim Tams, a generous pinch of salt and a 75/25 dark/milk chocolate mix, with a dollop of butter. On the stove, too! It was even better!! I think the fun variations are endless and next in my sights are the peanut butter Tim Tams :):)

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh that sounds like a brilliant idea (I love peanut butter!!)

  7. What a very dangerous idea Lucy. But so delicious.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      It is VERY dangerous hehehe!

  8. Michelle says:

    This fudge works extremely well and is super easy. It is not cheap to make but can be cut in small portions so potentially go further! 😉 Probably needs to be served with a health warning attached! hehe

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hahaha yes that’s so true!!! And you’re definitely right about only needing a teensy slice!

  9. Nicole says:

    Just made it and it is a hit! Made it for an indulgent treat for the kids but not sure they will get much, between myself &I my husband there might not be much left…lol! Love the idea, so easy….considering other variations, maybe mint slice version or even a peppermint crisp one…oh dear, sounds dangerous! Thank you & keep the great recipes coming.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh they are great ideas!!!! So glad you liked it!

  10. Hanri says:

    I just made this for a work function and it was more the well received!!!
    It really is super easy. Don’t think I will go back to the traditional way of making fudge.

    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Fantastic! I’m so happy you enjoyed it (and yes you’re right – it’s so easy!). xx

  11. Vanessa says:

    I made these last week and they were a huge hit!! Couldn’t stop eating them. Do you think i could use white tim tams and white melts and still use the milo??

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Oh my gosh yes!!! I’m going to have to try that too!!!

  12. Georgia says:

    Do you make the milk with milk and water or is it just the milk powder you use?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Georgia, I’m sorry I’m not sure exactly what you mean? Are you referring to the sweetened condensed milk? If so, you buy it in a can at the supermarket (it’s very sticky and sweet).
