Tips on How to Make Homemade Fudge {Quick & Easy}

  • We really enjoyed this fudge with the dried fruit and nuts. Toasting the nuts really brings out a great flavor and aroma to the fudge. The bright flavors of the dried fruit and their chewy bite add another great dimension to this chocolatey fudge. Each bite had so many wonderful flavors and textures that it was really hard to just eat one.
  • Don’t like fruit and nuts in your fudge? No problem, just don’t add anything!
  • Stir well in between the microwave intervals to melt the chocolate. If you overheat the chocolate it may affect the texture. Stirring gives the chocolate a chance to melt without overheating it.
  • Use whatever chocolate you prefer. Milk or dark chocolate will work just fine. You can cut up from chocolate blocks or use chocolate chips/morsels. Just avoid the chocolate candy melts. They are fine for cake pops and such, but the flavor will be lacking for the fudge.
  • Store the fudge in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Make sure to be careful and not over-microwave the chocolate chips or else they will seize up and become too hard.
