Microwave Caramel Fudge

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is the most delicious tasting fudge, and so easy to make, just mix, and microwave, no need to use a candy thermometer for this just make sure to cook the fudge mixture for the full 15 minutes that's what gives this fudge it's flavour and texture. Since this makes a thin layer of fudge, I sometimes make two separate batches and stack them on top of each other to make a thicker layer ---- well many mixed reviews so I am guessing that every microwave heats differently for me I always have great results!

Wish I had read the reviews before I tried to make this. I experienced the kitchen full of smoke, Black tar bubbling mess. So much for easy. Next one I'm making is going to be on the stove top. Being on a fixed income doesn't allow for many mistakes especially during Christmas time.
