Cocoa Powder Microwave Fudge

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
  1. Grease a square dish. (8×8 or 9×9, whatever you got!)
  2. 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!)
  3. Add milk & butter to the bowl. DON’T mix! Microwave for 2 minutes, until butter is melted.
  4. 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.
