Super Easy 10 Minute Microwave Quick Fudge Recipe

I’ve been making a whole lot of fudge as Christmas gifts for people and figured I would make a how to video of the process I use. It makes quick and easy shareable desserts. You can use pretty much any other flavored chip in the second step, the sky is the limit, go wild!

Update- I’ve been informed it’s technically ganache, but it fills the same role. Still delicious and quick.

18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use Eagle brand)
dash of salt
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I use Watkins double-strength; 1 for double strength, 2 for single-strength)
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Measuring cup
Silicone spatula
Bowl that can hold at least four cups of liquid
9×9 pan. Line with wax paper.

Mix the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the condensed milk in a bowl. I have a 1500W microwave, and after one minute at high heat, the chocolate is melting nicely. Be careful not to overheat, because that tends to burn the chocolate. It usually won’t be obvious that the chocolate is melting until you stir it. If one minute isn’t enough, heat for another minute at a time.

Once the chocolate and condensed milk mix, add the salt and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them) and stir some more to help blend them. Turn out into the wax-paper-lined pan. Chill in the refrigerator, but it should survive storage at room temperature. It typically takes several hours to cool.

Cut into chunks and serve. You can serve cold, but it melts better in the mouth when at room temperature.

With butterscotch:
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 ounces butterscotch chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use Eagle brand)
dash of salt
2-4 teaspoons vanilla extract (I use Watkins double-strength; 2 for double strength, 4 for single-strength)
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Same as above.

If you want the look of nuts, mix in the butterscotch chips as is or with a little chopping. If you want the butterscotch to be non-obvious, chop it thoroughly. I have good luck when I freeze it, then use my blender to chop the frozen chips.

Prepare the chocolate as above, leaving the butterscotch out for now. Once the chocolate and condensed milk are mixed, add in the butterscotch chips or powder. Stir to mix the butterscotch in. Heat for another 30 seconds (1500W microwave) or minute (1200W microwave). Add the salt and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them). Heat again if necessary. Turn out into the wax-paper-lined pan. Chill for several hours to solidify, allow to warm to room temperature, cut, and serve.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs until combined. Add cream, milk, sugar and molasses, whisk to combine. Add spices and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Slice Challah bread down the middle, vertically, then cut across horizontally, to create manageable slices.

Pour egg batter into the casserole dish and then dunk bread, on both sides in the egg batter to coat on both sides. Begin lining bread upright, against one end of the dish, completing the process until all slices are coated and lined upright in the casserole dish. Wipe edges of dish clean with a paper towel.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan combine all the ingredients for the syrup, simmer for 10 mins until warmed through and fragrant. Transfer syrup to a gravy boat for serving.

Once French toast is done, allow to cool slightly, dust with the powdered sugar and place the dish in your basket cozy.

1 can of sweeten condensed milk (ie Eagle Brand)
2 cups of packed brown sugar

How Long Common Foods Can Last In Your Freezer Before They Spoil.

Here’s How Long Common Foods Can Last In Your Freezer Before They Spoil.
Have you ever felt uneasy about eating frozen food in your refrigerator thinking it may have gone bad? Be it a chicken casserole, a steak or a strawberry pudding, it can make you extremely indecisive not knowing whether you should eat it or not especially if it’s been too long in the freezer. How long can foods be frozen is a problem in every household which is why the following information can help you know how long you can freeze certain foods till they are considered safe to eat. Printing out the information is recommended so that you can refer to it like a chart and freeze food accordingly.

1) Stick a label on each food before freezing.

One of the best pieces of advice where frozen food is concerned is to put a label on it so that you will know exactly how long you have kept in the freezer. You’ll be surprised to know how long certain foods should be stored instead of keeping them in your freezer for months on end. A frosted cake can be frozen only for a month, now you know why cake eaten after a month may taste funny.

2) Some foods should not be frozen at all.

There are certain foods that you just can’t freeze like eggs. Even though some people may tell you that you can, the truth is a freezer label chart says that you can for a month while the Food safety department of the government says that you can freeze egg whites up to a year but says you can’t freeze egg yolk because they don’t freeze well. The best way to freeze eggs is to remove them from the shell first. The chart mentions that you can keep raw egg yolks in the refrigerator section for 2 to 4 days but they can’t be frozen. Raw egg whites can be frozen upto 12 months but raw eggs in a shell should not be frozen instead beat yolks and whites together; then freeze.

3) Meat and fish.

Meat and fish have different freezing times. Lean fish can be frozen up to six months but a fatty fish like salmon can only be frozen for two or three months at the most. Pork steak and roasts can be frozen upto a year while turkey ground meat can be frozen for upto 4 months.

4) What happens to frozen food.

As per theory freezing food stops bacterial growth so that means theoretically speaking it can be used indefinitely. But!! As you very well know from experience that food does degenerate over time. That is why it is important to follow the freezing time for different types of food. This way you can be sure of consuming something which has not spoiled and will save you trips to the doctor or prevent food poisoning.

5) Frozen Storage Time For Bread AND Desserts.

Baked bread rolls – 2 to 3 months.

Baked cookies- 6 to 8 months.
Cookie dough- 3 months.
Baked frosted cake – 1 month.
Baked fruit pies- 6 to 8 months.

Baked muffins- 6 to 12 months.
Pancakes- 3 months.

6) Frozen Storage Time For Meat Products.

Lamb and veal – 9 months.
Pork chops- 4 to 6 months.
Pork roasts- 4 to 12 months.
Steaks- 6 to 12 months.

Lobster- 12 months.
Crab- 10 months.

9) Frozen Storage Time Of Beverages.

Milk- 3 to 6 months.

Concentrate juice- 2 months.

10) Always chill and refrigerate promptly, here’s why.

Did you know that disease-causing bacteria and germs can easily grow on perishable food items within two hours of being out in the open? This is why you should refrigerate them immediately. During summer if the tempera tire happens to be more than 90° F or higher, then that time needs to decrease by one hour. Refrigerating food promptly can keep you and your family safe from food poisoning.

Never thaw your food on a counter as it can also attract bacteria. Always thaw frozen food in cold water, in a microwave or in the refrigerator itself.

The Most Yummy 7 Layer Magic Bars

Please subscribe to stay up-to-date on all the goodies we besties are bringing! We look forward to hearing from you and what you want to see us tackle, transform and share with you!

Recipe to bake yummy 7 Layer Bars:
We used an 8X8 glass baking dish. You can adjust the recipe for a larger pan.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

¾ cup melted butter
¾ – 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
Mix these two ingredients together.

Pour and spread evenly onto the bottom of the baking dish.

Start adding the layers of additional ingredients and spread over the top of each corresponding ingredient:
Approximately ¾ of a bag of chocolate chips (dark, semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
Approximately ¾ of a bag of butterscotch chips
¾ cup chopped nuts (walnuts, almond or pecans)
¾ cup of shredded coconut

Optional – add an 8th ingredient on top of white chocolate chips.

Pour ¾ of a can of condensed milk over the top of the ingredients. As it bakes, it will help melt the ingredients together.

Bake for approximately 25 minutes, but be sure to check it to make sure it doesn’t burn on top.

Take the 7 Layer Bars out of the oven when done and let it cool for 20-30 minutes. I like to put it into the fridge for another 20 minutes after it’s cooled. This makes it easier to cut the bars without it getting messy.

Then cut into bars as big or small as you wish. Did you see my inexpensive, super easy way to serve the bars?
