This makes for a quick chocolate fix ! It's not your grandma's fudge by any means, but it will cure your sweet tooth in a short amount of time. Add whatever type of nut you prefer or keep it plain.

I have been making Fudge using this same recipe for years. The only difference is I use a tablespoon of vanilla and also add black walnut flavoring (if I can find it). This isn't exactly like cooked fudge, but it's near enough that this is the only fudge I ever make - soo easy. Thanks for sharing PrimQuilter. Just wanted to add a note to this. If your microwave is higher powered, you many only need to cook 2 minutes.

This is so quick and easy and on top of that it is the best fudge ever. My families favorite. We use real butter and Hershey's cocoa.
