{5 Minute} Chocolate Pecan Fudge

{5 Minute} Chocolate Pecan Fudge is smooth and creamy rich chocolate fudge generously filled with pecans. This fudge is perfect for gifting, snacking, and serving for any occasion!

Traditionally, old-fashioned fudge is a time intensive and finicky candy to make. It used to require a candy thermometer and a considerable amount of time spent stirring the hot mixture over the stovetop. Now, I’m thrilled to be making countless varieties of fudge in just minutes!

While I’m not really a fan of “microwave cooking” in general, nothing beats being able to melt baking ingredients to the perfect consistency in just moments. To make this Chocolate Pecan Fudge, you simply combine everything in a glass bowl, heat for a couple minutes, pour onto a tray, and refrigerate until firm!

COOK’S NOTE: If you aren't a fan of the microwave, you can easily melt the chocolate, milk and butter in a double boiler on the stove top.


{5 Minute} Chocolate Pecan Fudge

Yield: (36) 1-inch squares

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, plus about 2 tablespoons for topping

Combine the chocolate, the milk, and the butter in a medium size glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 90 seconds. Stir to combine and heat another 15 seconds if needed.

Add the extract and stir until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of pecans. Scoop onto a parchment lined tray. Spread with a spatula to approximately 1-inch thickness. Top with remaining chopped pecans. Chill until ready to serve. Slice into 1-inch squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
