Paula Deen in 5 Minute Fudge

Paula Deen in 5 Minute Fudge


  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (e.g., walnuts, pecans) – optional
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Prepare a square or rectangular baking dish or pan (around 8×8 inches) by lining it with parchment paper or greasing it with butter or cooking spray. This will prevent the fudge from sticking.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and unsalted butter.
  3. Microwave the mixture on high for 1 minute.
  4. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the ingredients together until everything is well combined and smooth. If the chocolate hasn’t completely melted, microwave it for another 30 seconds and stir again.
  5. Once the mixture is smooth, stir in the chopped nuts and vanilla extract. The nuts are optional, so if you prefer your fudge without them, feel free to omit this step.

  1. Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared baking dish or pan, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  2. Allow the fudge to cool at room temperature for about 2 hours. Once it has set, you can transfer it to the refrigerator to chill for an additional 1 to 2 hours for a firmer consistency.
  3. Once the fudge has fully set and cooled, cut it into small squares using a sharp knife.
  4. Serve and enjoy your quick and easy 5-Minute Fudge!
