1-2-3 Fudge {Microwave} & Weekend Potluck #47


(Since ya'll will be tired of cooking, and we look forward to a break, Weekend Potluck will return in TWO weeks..ya'll come back now ya hear?)

We can all return refreshed & ready to head back to the kitchen in the new year!! get a fresh, new recipe instead of a Flashback today! 

I've been making this fast and easy fudge for years.  You can change it up by using different frosting flavors, or chips, adding extracts, etc.  
Can't beat it for E-Z!! 

THREE simple ingredients - 4 if you want to add nuts or craisins....


1-2-3 FUDGE 

1 - 16 ozs. tub milk chocolate ready-to-use frosting
1 - 12 ozs. bag milk chocolate baking chips
1 Tb. butter
1/2 - 1 c. nuts or craisins, optional 

Grease a 9" X 9" pan.  Place frosting, chips and butter in a glass bowl.  Heat in the microwave for 1 minute; stir to melt and blend everything together.  Stir in nuts or craisins.  Pour into prepared pan.  Allow to cool. Cut into squares.

Yield: 36 pieces
