Stuffedveggies Easy Fudge Series: Microwave Fudge Assortment for One

 Would you like enough fudge to satisfy a sweet tooth without being required to eat a whole pan of fudge? If so, here's how to do it : )

Just combine the ingredients in a microwavable cup
(I use a Corelle brand teacup), microwave, stir,
cool, and eat. (The Cooling step is totally optional if you like
warm fudge ; )

If you want to add a stir-in, like nuts, maraschino cherries, marshmallows, or crushed cookies, you can make an almost infinite variety from these three basic formulas. 
Microwave Fudge for One

Peanut Butter Fudge
1/4 Cup Confectioner's Sugar
1 teaspoon Buttery Spread*
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon liquid (a combination of a little vanilla extract & non-dairy milk)
1/2 Tablespoon Peanut Butter
Mix well with fork.
Microwave for 10 seconds, stir, Microwave an additional 5 seconds (or until Buttery Spread Melts) and mix well with a fork. Stir, Allow to cool before eating.


 Chocolate Fudge

3 1/2 Tablespoons Confectioner's Sugar
1 teaspoon Buttery Spread*
1/2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoon liquid (combination of Non-Dairy Milk & Vanilla)
Mix well with fork
Microwave for 10 seconds, stir, Microwave an additional 5 seconds (or until Buttery Spread Melts) and mix well with a fork. Stir, Allow to cool before eating.

Vanilla Fudge**

1/4 Cup Confectioner's Sugar
1 teaspoon Buttery Spread*
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon liquid (a combination of a little vanilla extract** & non-dairy milk)
Mix well with fork.
Microwave for 10 seconds, stir, Microwave an additional 5 seconds (or until Buttery Spread Melts) and mix well with a fork. Stir, Allow to cool before eating.
** You can use a different flavor extract, such as almond, cherry, or orange, if you prefer)

*Buttery Spread: I use Earth Balance, but any fat that is solid at room temperature should work here - anything from Coconut Oil to Dairy Butter. I would not expect a whipped or diet spread to work as well, but I would be delighted to hear back if someone finds out that those substitutes DO work : ) Similarly, any type of milk - dairy or non-dairy  - should work, if it fits your needs and diet.

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
