Even those with limited time can make homemade candy. These recipes use the microwave to help you make homemade candies in a matter of minutes. Cooling time varies but the actual prep is very quick. Try the Microwave Layered Chocolate P. Butter Fudge and the Quick and Easy Marshmallow Fudge Candy. They are so good you will want to make them both!
MICROWAVE LAYERED CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
You can make this fudge in 10 minutes. However, it will need to chill for a couple of hours.
1 cup peanut butter bits
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk, divided
1/2 stick butter (4 tbsps)
1 cup semisweet chocolate bits
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
Lightly butter or spray an 8-inch square pan. In a small microwave-safe bowl, place the p. butter bits, half the sweetened condensed milk, and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cover with plastic wrap. In another small micro-wave safe bowl, place chocolate bits, remaining sweetened condensed milk, and 2 tablespoons butter.
Microwave the p. b. bit mixture on high for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir until creamy smooth. Pour into the prepared square pan and spread evenly. Microwave the chocolate mixture on high for 3 minutes. Remove from the microwave, stir until creamy and pour over the peanut butter mixture in the pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts over the top and press in lightly. Chill at least 2 hours to firm. Cut into 16 squares.
QUICK AND EASY MARSHMALLOW FUDGE CANDY
1 pkg (12-oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chunky peanut butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
In a microwave safe 2-quart bowl, microwave chocolate chips and peanut butter together on medium setting for 2 to 3 minutes or until the chocolate is melted, stirring after each minute. Fold in the marshmallows and spread the mixture in a buttered 9-inch square pan. Chill until firm. Cut into approximately 24 pieces.
