Looking for a classic microwave fudge recipe? The base of this beauty is the classic one we all grew up eating at school bake sales, but we've added a bit of extra pizzazz with a generous scattering of Chuckles.


  • 450 g caster sugar
  • 1 x 385 g can condensed milk
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 125 g Woolworths Chuckles malt puffs

Cooking Instructions

1. Place the sugar, condensed milk, butter and vanilla in a large microwavable bowl, then mix to combine.

2. Microwave the mixture on highest setting for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes until soft ball stage. To test this, place 1 teaspoon worth of fudge mixture in some cold water. If you are able to form a soft ball between your fingers, then the fudge is ready.

3. Remove the mixture from the microwave and mix using an electric mixer for 5 minutes.

4. Fold in the Chuckles then pour the mixture into a 21cm square greased and lined baking tin, then allow to set for 2 hours in the fridge. Cut into bars to serve.
