Fudge is a treat usually for special occasions such as holidays or served at family & friends' functions. It makes a whimsical gift when wrapped in treat bags or placed in a fancy tin.
Many shops & bakeries specialize in different flavors of fudge and experimental home cooks. Here's a small list of flavor ideas to add to your fudge. Holiday candy cane, gingerbread fudge, peanut butter, cotton candy, butterscotch, white, dark, or milk chocolate, pecan, or walnut. A favorite way to eat fudge is digging up the pieces of fudge in a pint of ice cream.
For Microwave Fantasy Fudge, it only takes 15 minutes to cook with the addition of 20-30 minutes of cooling time. The original Fantasy Fudge recipe was said to have been developed by Kraft over 100 years ago. Guessing they didn't think this many years later, the recipe would be adapted and cooked in a microwave in under 15 minutes!
The easy-to-find ingredients in this Microwave Fantasy Fudge are butter, Demerara sugar, evaporated milk, dark chocolate chips, toasted and salted hazelnuts, shredded coconut, coconut essence, and of course. This ingredient makes this fudge a fantasy marshmallow cream. If marshmallow cream isn't available, you can substitute it for mini marshmallows.
You can either go the traditional route and set the fudge in a lined square pan. Or use any fun shapes of silicone molds in your kitchen drawers, cool them in the fridge, and they pop right out. Finally, line some muffin or mini muffin tins with paper and pour the Fantasy Fudge into the containers for portion control and perfect-looking treats.
