Grandma's 5 Minute Fudge Recipe

My Grandma made the easiest fudge recipe at Christmas.  It's decadent and satisfies a chocolate craving right away.  It's Grandma's Five Minute Fudge recipe.  Really, it only takes about 5 minutes.  The fudge is so simple that my little brother could make it while he was a college student--now that's amazing!

For 5 Minute Fudge all you need is:  

1.5 bags of chocolate chips
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
2-3 handfuls of marshmallows  
Nuts or peppermint pieces are optional

 1. In a medium bowl combine the milk and the chocolate chips. Try to coat all the chips.

 2. Melt for 2 minutes in the microwave.  Stir it well and heat a few seconds more as needed to melt all the chips.

 3.  Stir in marshmallows--as many as desired as long as they melt (about 2-3 handfuls).  The marshmallows must melt so you can put it in the microwave for a few seconds if needed.

4. Add in nuts too, if desired.  It should look all melted like this picture.

5. Pour into a buttered pan or dish. And you're done!!!!  Let it cool and then cut.

If you want you can add some crushed candy canes on top before it cools.  I love to add a little peppermint.  Keep in mind, this step may add a minute or two . . . .heehee.

This is great when you need a last minute holiday dessert!  It  also freezes well.  So you can make some ahead of time and save it for your Christmas party!

I hope you love it!
