Well now you have! It’s the crazy easy ‘cheat’ way of making fudge. No thermometer required, no slaving away over a hot stove for hours, just a microwave, a bowl and a bit of mixing. Honestly, that’s it! (Exactly like in my easy Milk & Cookies Chocolate Fudge recipe.) Yielding the most beautiful, creamy and luxurious fudge, I guarantee you won’t look back after trying this. Carry on reading for my super easy to follow step by step picture recipe and top tips for getting it perfect every time!
When I say this glorious Maltesers microwave fudge will blow your mind I’m really not joking. Think it took forever and a day to make? Relentless stirring for hours and hours? Think again. I kid you not, it literally takes just 5 minutes to make. I know, it’s really hard to believe but stay with me… Melt it, mix it, done. Say that again? Melt it, mix it, done. Seriously, that’s it!
It’s ok though – it’ll be our dirty little secret. I promise I won’t tell anyone that it only took you 5 minutes to make this luxuriously decadent treat then the fridge did all the hard work for you. And no one needs to know that you put your feet up within 10 minutes of starting this gorgeous microwave fudge recipe… I promise, my lips are sealed!
In all seriousness though it really is so simple to make and tastes absolutely beautiful. Everyone will be begging you for the recipe and no one will believe how quick it was to make. It also doubles as a wonderful homemade gift! Looking for a different flavour? Check out my creamy Biscoff Fudge recipe!
Here is what you will need to make 36 pieces.
(For a printer friendly version, see the recipe card at the end of this post)
Line your baking tin and set to one side. If you’re using a silicone pan you don’t need to line it.
Break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl and pour in the condensed milk. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds then give it a good stir. Repeat, heating in 10 second intervals, until it’s all melted and smooth.
Working quickly, tip in all except approx 15-20 Maltesers and give your microwave fudge a good mix. (It will start to set quite rapidly.)
And yes, it’s fine to eat a few. Why do you think there are so many in the recipe?!
Tip the whole lot into your prepared/silicone tin and level out with a spatula. You don’t need to be exact. I think a little bumpiness adds to the charm!
Take those remaining 15-20 Maltesers you reserved earlier and press them randomly into the top of your microwave fudge.
Pop it into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once firm, you can remove it from the tin & slice into 36 pieces. (6 x 6 grid.)
Store your Maltesers Microwave Fudge in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 5 days.
Isn’t it a thing of beauty?? It would make a lovely gift for Birthdays, Christmas or any occasion that you can think of! It’s also another fantastic recipe to to get the kids involved with on the weekends or over the holidays. I do love me a good no bake treat!

Please note that when a Malteser it cut and air gets to it, it gets sticky and soft. This fudge is either best eaten on the day it's made or kept whole and uncut until required.
