A Convenient Fudge

This fudge recipe requires only three ingredients and spray oil. You can add nuts, peanuts, coconut, or anything else that comes to mind. The main flavor is chocolate. You can change one or more of the ingredients to different flavor(s) for variations.
Ingredients, in the order of processing and adding
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips or other meltable candy
  • 16 oz. frosting
  • 15 large marshmallows (or 1 1/2 cups minis)
  • 1/2 cup or more nuts
  • spray oil for the pan
My recent ingredients that I have used most recently are peanut butter disks, chocolate frosting, caramel-flavor marshmallows, and chopped peanuts.
Utensils
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 cooking spoon
  • 1 or more knives for chopping nuts (I use Salad Shooter), cutting the finished fudge
  • 1 8" x 8" pan, prepared with spray oil
Instructions
  1. Melt chips or other meltable candy in the large mixing bowl in the microwave oven, using reduced power. Check about a minute or so for about two rounds of heating.
  2. Add frosting to the bowl. Microwave another minute or so until you can easily blend the ingredients with the spoon.
  3. Add marshmallows to the bowl. Microwave another minute or so until you can easily blend the ingredients with the spoon.
  4. Add nuts to the bowl. Blend the ingredients with the spoon.
  5. Pour ingredients into the spray-oil prepared pan.
  6. Refrigerate for no more than two hours. (If longer, the fudge could be difficult to cut.)
  7. Cut into 64 pieces (8 x 8) or fewer. (FYI, the paper cups are available at craft stores and baking supply outlets.)
Note: Instead of waiting 2 hours and cutting the fudge block with a knife, you can wait 1 1/2 hours for cooling, then use a cooky spatula edge, pressing down. If edges of middle fudge pieces look a little warped, lightly shape them.
