Who knew one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made would be the recipient of the most compliments?  This easy Milky Way Fudge was made from just three ingredients. THREE.

Milky Way Fudge

I made this microwave milky way fudge on New Year’s Eve for a gathering the following day. By the time we left the party, I had promised to email the recipe to one of my friends…and her husband hinted around how much he’d love to find a second batch in his mailbox.  Chocolate chips + one can of sweetened condensed milk + Milky Way candy bars = Dreamy Fudge. It’s definitely a snap to make.

Milky Way Fudge


Super Easy Fudge Recipe

Place a bag of chocolate chips, the condensed milk and a few chopped fun sized Milky Ways into a microwave safe bowl. Zap and stir a few times till smooth, then add more chopped Milky Ways before spreading into a greased pan. That’s it. You barely need a recipe! The hardest part will be waiting till it cools. Pinky swear.

Tip of the Day: You’ll get the cleanest squares if you cut this fudge when chilled. Bring it back to room temperature before serving.

Milky Way Fudge - Who knew one of the easiest recipes I've ever made would be the recipient of the most compliments?  This Milky Way Fudge was made from just three ingredients.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes
Yield 64 squares


  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces of Milky Way candy bars, chopped, divided (I used 10 Fun Sized Milky Way bars)


  1. Line a 8 inch pan with nonstick foil.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the condensed milk, chocolate chips and HALF the candy bar chunks. Microwave for 1 minute and then stir. Microwave for additional bursts of 20 seconds (stirring after each burst) until the mixture is smooth. (It won't matter if there are a few unmelted pieces). Stir in the rest of the Milky Way chunks.
  3. Spread mixture into pan, using an offset spatula to smooth the top. Let cool at least an hour.
  4. Take the fudge out of the pan by lifting up the foil and transferring it to a cutting board. Cut into small pieces.

  13. Can you believe I’ve never attempted to make fudge? The shame. This looks so easy that I might even be able to pull it off! My hubby thanks you! 😉

  14. Great way to celebrate the new year Liz- this recipe is just too easy and good-looks dangerous to me but a definite keeper-like the idea of trying different candy in the basic recipe..could be just the thing for leftover Halloween candy (?) Anyway-I’m pinning-thanks for sharing Sweetie Pie 😉

  15. glad u loved it as much as i did-and sooo easy!!!! yay!!

  16. Liz! oh my goodness!! LOVE this!!! yum! and so cool what you do with Danielle . . love that!

  17. Great recipe! If you add 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, it tastes even better. Just sayin’

  18. My favorite candy bar into a fudge. Yup, I’m coming over!!

  19. This is sinful!

  20. Any recipe that has only 3 ingredients and one of them is sweetened condensed milk definitely gets my attention. Of course you actually had it with that first picture. This is a melt in your mouth fudge!

  21. LIz, What a great last minute goodie. This is going to go viral…pinning!

  22. Oh wow. This fudge looks fantastic. I have actually never seen Milky Way candy bars. Maybe I need to make a trip to the States to get some 😉

  23. Anything with three ingredients and one of them being chocolate is totally dangerous. And real trouble for me. Can’t wait to try!

  24. Easy, fast and so yummy! Tahnk you Liz! The Milky Way bars in the States must be like the Mars bars we have in Europe, they have caramel inside too don’t they?

  25. Oh Liz this recipe is too easy. It looks fabulous. Fudge is something I cannot have around because there is just no stopping myself from eating it all.

  26. I have a strong filling this thing would be gone before lunch! Loove it! 🙂 ela

  27. Life is funny and serendipitous, Liz. I’m just getting ready to write a post about the very subject of easy goodies are sometimes the most popular! Your milky way fudge BTW does seem completely irresistible. Pinned!

  28. oooooh love how simple and irresistible this fudge is!

  29. Pinky swear? LOL I haven’t heard that for years. I don’t know if we can buy milky way bars here but I’m going to look. I wonder if other chocolate bars would work?

  30. I was half way through making this when I realised Milky Ways in America are different to Milky Ways in the UK, oops! I think the equivalent is Mars Bars but to be fair the fudge still turned out fantastic regardless.

  31. Oh WOW!! I could seriously do some damage to my waistline with these. 🙂

  32. Oh my goodness! Milky Ways are loved around here and using Midnight Milky Ways would be perfect because these look delicious!

  33. Excellent fudge! I tried to hide it from my teenagers but that did not work at all.

  34. Such a great idea for Milky Way lovers!

  35. This fudge is everything! Can’t wait to make it again.
