I made it with my Girl Guides aged 10-14 yrs and had no problems following the recipe. The taste and texture of the finished product was great
I love this site,so easy,so simple,thank you for these awesome recipes!
All my friends and family love it to,and the finished product is no let down
Great recipe, I made it with butter rather than marg, much nicer I think!
I have had this recipe for years, so it was most interesting to find it on your website!! I think that it is the ONLY one to make, much less trouble than the kind you boil on the stove, and it turns out perfect every time! Great for gifts too, and quick to make! Your website is the best, simple recipes and not ingredients that are not usually in the house!
Yuuuumy!!simply the BEST!!
I made this recipe…LOVED IT! I used less sugar than the recipe calls for and it still tasted great! My now go-to fudge recipe
Devine fudge, I have never made fudge before, was always worried about the fuss, this is fuss free.
I am going to make this now, I’ll be back to see to let you know, ‘fingers crossed’, as i have just made the worst fudge known to man and beast, it was like kendal mint cake without the mint!!
This was a hit last year at Christmas and I’m already getting asked about it for this year. Best easiest recipe ever!!
I HAVE TRIED THIS RECIPE TWICE NOW AND EACH TIME COMES OUT LIKE SOFT TOFFEE. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT IM DOING WRONG??:-(
Cook it for longer, your microwave might not be as powerful.
This recipe works well. I just need to get better at cutting it.
Michelle: Try cooking it for longer. It should have a thick consistency and be a darker caramel colour before it’s ready. The length of time required for cooking varies based on the power of the microwave.
Wow! This was the first time I ever made fudge and it was almost perfect! I stopped watching the microwave for a second, and it all boiled over and made a terrible mess, so I poured what I could salvage into another container, and it mostly set. The graininess was just perfect, the taste was just perfect, but next time I’d like to try to get the colour right and get it to set properly. I’ll try again and this time not take my eyes off the microwave, but I’m very excited by how close it was!
Looks good..now just to convert this to conventional Cups instead of ml’s??
Last time I tried to make this, i ended up with inedible hard toffee. However, I’ve realised what went wrong and plan to try again.
I have one question: how much is a “can” of condensed milk? I can only get 250mls, but is this right?
Cutting your fudge:
I’ve made this fudge time and time again and it never fails. (I use 125g of butter).
Here are some tips you may want to use:
To remove and cut your fudge succesfully:lightly butter or spray your dish / mould, place some oversized wax paper (over the sides of your dish) into the dish, spray again very lightly. Then pour your fudge mixture into your dish. Wait for it to set (about 15 – 20 minutes, It must still be kinda soft but not hot. Place your cutting board over your dish, turn your dish upside down and gently pull on your wax paper. The fudge ‘cake’ will fall out. You can now cut your blocks and leave to dry / cool completely without breaking a sweat. It works like a dream.
Also, if you rub a bit of butter all along the edges of your bowl the mixture tend to not boil over. (works for me). Happy fudge making.
The first time I made this fudge it came out perfectly but everytime I try to make it the butter separates and sits on top?? Im not doing anything differently, has anyone got any advice to stop this?

Bought a Sharp/microwave in South/A; this recipe came with it. Never fails.
1 tin condensed milk
2 Cups castor sugar (super fine or fruit sugar)
125g HARD MARGARINE (NO SUBSTITUTES)NOT BUTTER
1.Put all ing; in a Pyrex dish (dish must be at least 5inchs high or it will boil over.
2.M/wave on high for 2 min (this stays the same for big or small M/Waves. Take out and stire very welltill eveything is dissolvedand looks like condenensed milk.
Put back in m/w 10 min for big or 8 min for small m/w
Take out add vanilla and stir very well till smooth and
the bubblling (boiling ) stops. you must work quickly as it starts to set quickly. The dish will also be VERY HOT.Pour into a lightly sprayed 8X8 OR 8X 9 inch pan.Leave to set for about 6 min maybe more if your pan is smaller cut into squaresand leave to cool completely. (DO NOT PUT IN FRIDGE)store in a tupper type container. IT CAN THEN BE KEEPT INTHE FREEZER.Hope this helps some of you.
omG, im in love with this recipe! The fudge tastes soooooooo goooooooood! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is great I make traditional tablet all the time, but this is so easy. no standing for long periods and tastes just as good. mine took 5 mins longer as I do like the sugary texture, but still no hassle. Thank you for sharing this
I give this recipe 10/10 – most simple, easy to follow instructions and tastes delicious.
Mine came out perfectly – I have had fudge failures using butter so stuck to marg and I greased the top of the bowl and it didnt boil over in the microwave – this has happened to me before – Thanks!
Can I use icing sugar instead of castor suger?
