Ingredients

  • 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips I use Ghirardelli
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounce
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Instructions

  • Line 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper leaving an overhang. You will use this overhang to help remove the fudge from the pan.

  • In large microwavable bowl add chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Cook in microwave at 50% power until chips are melted; approximately 3-5 minutes. Stir a couple of times during the cooking process. After chips are melted quickly stir in coconut and almonds.

  • Pour into parchment lined pan and smooth with the back side of a spoon lightly sprayed with nonstick baking spray. Refrigerate until set. Using the overhang lift fudge out of pan and place on cutting board or plate. Peel off parchment paper.

    I would love to make this almond joy fudge. Looks very yummy. I was wondering if I could use margarine instead if butter? I use margarine in my regular fudge because I tried butter & the grease came to the top as it cooled. Also I do it on top of the stove instead of microwave & let it come to a boil & let it boil for exactly boil for 10 minutes & then pour it over the things in the bowl like the chocolate, nuts & margarine. Do you think I can do your recipe like that.?

      Not sure, Carol! I am reluctant to give my opinion on that when I have not tested it. Please let me us know if you try!

    Oh My: This is good stuffI THINK OF a decadent fudge!.. SO EASY, just me and the microwave!. I followed the recipe exactly but next time, and there will be many next times: I will cut the butter in half. Other than that it is smooth, just soft and wonderful

    Hi . Does the fudge need to be refrigerated after it’s done? I will it keep on the counter covered?

    • Beth Pierce

      Store in an airtight container on the countertop for 7-10 days.

    Love this recipe. So simple to make and everybody always loves it. I have made it as is, with just coconut, with pecans and coconut oh, and it’s always good. Best to keep cold and set out 10 minutes before serving just to make it a little softer. Hope you enjoy this as much as our family does

    I am wondering if since I am a diabetic can I use Stevia instead of sugar and is there unsweet chocolate, I am sure their is unsweetened coconut, but oh what about the sweetened milk?? I do love fudge…

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      Sorry Pauline! I am not sure not how it would turn out with stevia and unsweetened chocolate. Maybe one of my readers know.

      I would try monk fruit instead of sugar. Measures the same. Lily’s makes sugarless choc chips, but I do not know a work around for the can of sweet milk. At least it would cut out most of the sugar for you.

        You can make your own sweetened condensed milk – 1-1/2 c milk and 1/2 c cream. bring to a simmer bubble – turn off stove and add 1 c of your sweetener and a pinch of salt. stirring until it dissolves and remove from the heat to cool. When cool you are ready to use as a 1:1 replacement. I just did it tonight for the recipe – used unsweetened coconut flakes, sliced almonds and lily’s 🙂

    Do you think I could double this recipe for a 9×13 pan?

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      I do not think I would double this. I have read a lot of short little snippets on the internet about not doubling fudge recipes. I think it is because it is too much quantity to get to the right temperature. If I have time to read some more about it I will let you know.

    I am thinking of toasting the coconut. Do you feel that it would have a negative result?

      You can try popping it in the refrigerator for a bit. I have never had any trouble with that fudge. Humm?

    Can you freeze the fudge? If so, how and for how long?

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      If you are going to use the fudge up within a couple of weeks you don’t need to freeze it however you can freeze it for up to 2 months.

    I wrote earlier about keeping it in the fridge too long, once it sat out for a while it was perfect. I’d last to ask can I swap out with Milk Chocolate chips?

    How do I store these at room temperature or keep in the refrigerator? I’m making several batches ahead of time.

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      How far ahead of time are you making it? I will await your answer as fudge is best stored in airtight container at room temperature.

    Hey.. Seems my search for a nice fudge recipe ends here. Would love to try pretty soon. Just 2 doubts!! Is it OK if I omit the coconut flakes and replace butter with coconut oil? And I don’t find semi sweet chocochips here so, can I use simple sweet dark chocochips instead? Please suggest me..
    Thanks in advance!

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      Yes I do think both of those would work although I have not tested the coconut oil. However I saw enough recipes on the internet to believe it should work.

  25. Judy Paul

    Can this fudge be frozen ? How far ahead can you make it and it still be good ?

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      Yes it can be. Be sure to wrap well.

  26. Joan

    Can the finished product be shipped? It holds up without refrigeration?

    Reply

    • Beth Pierce

      In this case I think some refrigeration (via a commercial icepack) would be advised. Especially if being sent to a warm climate.

    Oh my goodness… This is soooo ridiculously GOOD. I’m doing a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom birthday party for my 3 year old and was looking for coconut recipes to include in the menu.

    Hi! I just made your recipe, just waiting for it to set. I licked the spoon and it tastes amazing! How long does it take to set when its refrigerated? Could I leave it to set at room temperature (it would probably take longer I guess to set though)?

    • Beth Pierce

      It should only take a couple of hours in the fridge. 🙂

      Is it possible you cooked the mixture in the microwave longer than just being melted? Not trying to throw around accusations. I just know that chocolate can be sensitive to melting.
