Microwave Russian Pecan Fudge

60 squares
15 min

Russian Fudge is my favourite kind of fudge.

But I have always found it to be the most tedious to make.

And the caramel will always catch on the bottom of the pot no matter how low the heat.

That is why I am sharing the easiest Russian Fudge recipe with y'all today.

It's so simple.

AND there is no burning on the bottom of the pot,

because it's completely microwave made!

I have added toasted pecans to my recipe - but if nuts are not for you leave them out.

To make the fudge...

you will need a can of condensed milk, brown sugar, butter, pecans and white chocolate.

You can find the printable recipe HERE.

Melt the butter -

Add the sugar and condensed milk and cook for five 2 minute increments stirring each time.

This is what it look like after 6 minutes...

Golden beautiful - and NO burny bits!

After the last 2 minutes - remove from microwave and add the pecans and white chocolate.

Quickly mix with a wooden spoon and spread into a baking paper lined slice pan.

It's so delicious.

I always 'snapchat' the family, and they all appear for a share.

Once you have made Russian fudge in the microwave,

I doubt you'll return to the pot cooked version...

it is that GOOD!

    I don’t like making candy in the microwave, is it done the same way on the stove using the same amount of ingredients.

      Cooking this on the stove takes a lot more attention and more time than using a microwave. Not paying attention, as in trying to do something else while you're making the fudge is why it burns when you cook it on the stove. I, on the other hand, have the exact opposite problem: every time I make a microwave candy recipe, I burn it. So I don't use the microwave.

      One question that might explain WHY you keep burning the caramel: do you use a double boiler setup to cook it on the stove? It is far too easy to burn any type of candy by cooking it over direct heat. I always use a double boiler to make candy. It might take a little more time; but it's worth it.
