I have been using this recipe since the early 90's and was so happy to find it here. This is by far the quickest and easiest way to make fudge. Anyone that this had a problem with this has tried to do it on a stove top or didn't follow the directions properly. I've found that for a creamier fudge, you can use 3 oz. of whipping cream (Cream being heavier and thicker than milk, you need a little extra). Also, if you prefer darker fudge, you can use the Special Dark cocoa from Hershey's. I've also made peanut butter fudge using this same recipe. Just leave out the cocoa and use peanut butter instead of butter. Another quick and great treat. I saw this recipe on a microwave cooking show on PBS. They actually listed several variations, I just can't recall all of them. One more small hint here. Modern day microwave a far hotter than earlier models. Melt time for bitter in my microwave is just over 1 min. This is important, you don't want to over heat the mixture as it can become very hard very fast. So do a test run to determine how long it takes to melt your butter and go from there. Happy cooking and enjoy!
