How To Make Fudge In The Microwave

6 minutes for potato chips, 5 minutes for a nutella cake, 90 seconds for eggs, and 1 minute for fudge. You can make so many delicious things in the microwave, and yes fuge is one of them! I’m an old fashion kind of girl and I love making things on my stove top but there are times when quick is best. Especially when it involves dessert! This recipe takes about 5 minutes of work and only 1 short minute in the microwave.

This recipe is so timely…just in time for the holidays. Fudge seems to be a Christmas treat. Or at least that’s when I get bins of it from the neighbors. This year I might be able to return the favor and give some of my own. I am onboard with simple DIY gifts and the more edible the better. We are only 5 ingredients away from delicious, melt-in your mouth fudge. And chocolate chips, butter, vanilla, salt, and condensed milk are all affordable and easy to come by!

3 Minute Microwave Meringues

What is a meringue? Most people think it’s a topping for pies like ‘lemon meringue.’ They aren’t wrong but that is only one kind of meringue. There are also bakes versions.These baked treats are supposed to be hard outside and smooth inside. Think of a cloud. Now think of meringue. If done right, the meringue should melt in your mouth like a cloud.

These sweets are made from egg whites and sugar. Easy, right? Wrong! They can be a little temperamental to master. I have failed so many times but here is a microwavable way to make them and I am curious to try it. You need the same ingredients but instead of whisking you will be kneading. Wouldn’t it be great to have delicious airy cookies in only 3 minutes?! I might separate the egg whites differently but other than…it looks fun! Looking for more meringue ideas?

These Cakes Are Too Amazing To Eat

How can people be so creative?! I am green with envy at the talent these people possess. I might have this skill level someday but not yet. I tip my hat to you if you are one of these fabulous master bakers. I would pay good money for someone to make one of these cakes for me (probably the library one). Maybe my guests won’t know I didn’t make it!

The planet Earth or Saturn cakes would be perfect for a kiddos geography or science class. If my kids and I worked together I think we could pull it off. But the snake cake is a no go for me! So scary and real looking. It is absolutely terrifying and I wouldn’t be able to eat it, let alone make it. Check out these other cakes from webneel. They will blow your mind!

The Best 20 Mug Cake Recipes

Let them eat cake! Marie Antoinette had it right, cake it the best. Sure, that’s not really what she meant but it doesn’t change the fact that cake is delicious! Mug cakes are the best of all; they are speedy to make, single serve, and awesome for portion control. These look so yummy!

The double lemon sounds refreshing and zesty and I think I’ll try it first. The raspberry sour cream, cinnamon roll, chocolate lava, caramel apple, and all the rest of them are to die for and need to be made asap. This really is a the “best of” list!
