Sometimes mami just needs a chocolate fix & there is nothing prepared in the house. That’s where this super easy fudge recipe comes in!
This is a one bowl recipe – a microwave safe bowl. That’s part of what makes this recipe so amazing – no cooking! You pretty much just dump the ingredients in the bowl, zap it for a few minutes, & stir.
It has only 5 easy ingredients – powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, milk, & butter. I don’t think I could call myself Mrs. Dessert Monster if I didn’t always have these on hand!
I originally found this recipe on allrecipes & have been using it for years to make this quick, delicious fudge.
It doesn’t last very long in my house!
Cocoa Powder Microwave Fudge
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Grease a square dish. (8×8 or 9×9, whatever you got!)
- Stir together powdered sugar & cocoa powder in a microwave safe bowl. (If desired, sift the powdered sugar. I almost never do this – I don’t really mind little bits of sugar throughout!)
- Add milk & butter to the bowl. DON’T mix! Microwave for 2 minutes, until butter is melted.
- Add vanilla & stir until smooth. Pour into greased dish. Chill until set & hardened (~30 min in fridge/10 min in freezer) & then cut into squares.
