"Easy-to-make-and-tastes-amazing fudge, but that's a pretty long title so we just call it 3-Minute Fudge. It's only 3 minutes to cook and 3 ingredients! Great to cut up and put in ice cream."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 ounce) bag
semisweet chocolate chips
1 (1 ounce) square
semisweet baking chocolate, chopped
Spoiler Alert: This takes longer than three minutes. ;)
If you're pressed for time, can't find or don't have a candy thermometer, it's a great no-fail fudge recipe to have on hand. I've been making a version of this for years with excellent results.
You don't have to stick to just chocolate either - this will work with any "chip" flavor you have. Today I made peanut butter and dark chocolate, and I was about to make a pan of white chocolate when disaster struck and I dropped my last can of condensed milk on the floor. Bummer. That must have been the Universe intervening to save my poor thighs!
If you want this to feel extra fancy, use a higher quality chocolate chip, like Ghiradelli to give a better depth of flavor. You can also top with chopped nuts, festive candies or sprinkles, or some unmelted chocolate chips. Get creative.
ProTip: Skip the step where you grease the pan. Just line with a single piece of aluminum foil instead (grease it with cooking spray if you want this to be extra simple.) and when it's time to serve the fudge, just lift the entire thing out of the pan, peel off the foil and cut into squares. Voila! Clean up is easier now too.
I skip the 1 oz square and just use extra chips.
Remember to work quickly once you've removed your mixture from the microwave. It's going to thicken up & get ooey-gooey very fast, so you need to get it smooth & spread it into the pan immediately.
The last thing I've found is that this fudge does best when kept in the fridge.
Need to add some fluff to mellow out semi chips..
I would add a pinch of salt to this.
This was super easy and very tasty. I made 3 different versions, using different chips as another reviewer suggested: Chocolate, Dark Chocolate (for Mom), and Mint Chocolate. All were excellent!!
I have a 1000 watt microwave. I put it on for 5 minutes at 30%. I used Reese's pieces. I added one teaspoon of vanilla. I licked the spatula and it tasted great. I will definitely experiment around with this recipe with different flavors.
This recipe sounds good but I have never tried to make and I wish it didn't take 3 hours to set.
Too chewy/rubbery, not at all like "real" fudge.
I've been making this fudge for years. I do add a tsp of vanilla and, since I'm into instant gratification, I simply spread it out on a piece of waxed paper on a cutting board and stick it in the freezer for a few minutes to harden (or on the back porch in the winter d;^)).
