How to make the easy microwave fudge

1 Put the condensed milk, butter and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl – remember that the mixture is likely to bubble up towards the end of the cooking time, so use a bigger bowl than you think you need.

2 Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and stir mixture well.

3 Place back in the microwave for a further 10-12 minutes (microwaves vary so adjust according to the strength of yours), stirring the mixture every 2/3 minutes or so until it’s a golden colour. Don’t overcook, and be careful because the fudge (and the bowl!) will be HOT when you take it out the microwave!

4 Remove from the microwave and quickly add your vinegar and any ‘extra’ ingredients – like Oreos or marshmallows – to the mixture and stir.

6 Place the fudge in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until set.

7 Turn out the tin, cut into squares and enjoy.
