20-Minute Wonder Fudge Recipe

20-Minute Wonder Fudge Recipe
Recently, while reviewing a fun new cookbook, 365 Family Dinners and Devotions Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Family, and Faith, I ran across an interesting recipe called Wonder Fudge. The recipe was easy to make, only took a few minutes, and called for ingredients that I already had on hand. While the original recipe turned out pretty good, I changed a few things, made a second batch, and Voila! The following 20-Minute Wonder Fudge was born. The ingredients are melted together in the microwave, then poured over a mixture of powdered sugar and crunchy cereal. Nothing could be easier.
These squares of crunchy fudge keep well, and are perfect to add to cookie trays or to include on a dessert buffet table. They’re also great for snacking.

36 1” squares

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup corn syrup
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups Special K cereal, or crispy rice cereal or cornflakes
  1. Spray an 8" x 8" square baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. Place the butter, chocolate chips, corn syrup, and vanilla in a microwaveable container.
  3. Microwave 2 minutes; stir until smooth. If the chocolate isn't melted, microwave up to one more minute, stirring every 30 seconds.
  4. Meanwhile, sift the powdered sugar into a large bowl; stir in the cereal.
  5. When the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth, stir into the cereal mixture.
  6. Mix well and spread evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  7. Refrigerate for a few minutes until the mixture sets.
  8. Cut into 36 squares.
