Do you love making fudge for gifts? I have made a number of fudge recipes over the years, but I keep going back to the tried and true recipes, which get eaten up every time. See my favourites below, but I would love to hear about your recipes! If you have a fudge recipe that you use every time, then please leave a comment at the top of this article with your ingredients and it will be shown underneath, for others to read.
The best part about making fudge is that it is so easy! You just need a few ingredients that you microwave together, and you can make an impressive gift that puts a smile on people's faces, every time. These are my favourite fudge recipes, what are yours?
2 cups Choc Chips 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Any extra's that you like - chopped walnuts, mixed dried fruit, lollies etc
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk on high for 1 minute, stir and then continue to microwave at 30-second intervals until the choc chips have melted. Stir in vanilla extract and your mix & match ingredients. Pour fudge into a square tin lined with baking paper, and refrigerate for a few hours to harden. Use a sharp knife to cut up into squares.

Line a loaf tray with foil. In a microwave-safe bowl, add white chocolate melts, thickened cream, honey and vanilla extract. Microwave for 30 seconds on high and stir to combine. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the choc melts have melted. Fold in the cranberries and pistachios and spread the mixture into the tin. Put in the fridge to set overnight. Cut into squares and store in the fridge until needed. Take it out 10 minutes prior to serving or giving, to make it soft to eat. See here for details.
