Microwave Praline Fudge

Although I tend to think of fudge as a holiday treat, somehow it makes me think of summer, too. Maybe it's because all of those candy shops along the Hampton Beach, NH boardwalk have gorgeous displays of all different types of fudges. (My family vacationed there all the time when I was a kid.) Or maybe it's because now, when we head up to the Adirondacks for a weekend getaway, there are a couple shops I love going to, and they all have delicious fudge.

Fudge is really easy to make at home, though, and it doesn't require a lot of effort. Sure you can stand over your stove stirring, stirring, stirring. Or, you can make it in the microwave. Trust me -- it's amazing!

Microwave Praline Fudge

3 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips

1 can (440g) sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup Skor bits

Place all ingredients except nuts in a large bowl. Microwave at half-power (50%) until chocolate chips are melted, 3-5 minutes, stirring once or twice. Stir in nuts and candy. Pour into foil-lined square 8x8 inch baking dish. Refrigerate until set.

You can play around with ingredients, too. Add dried cranberries or cherries; use peanuts or almonds; or mix in some peanut butter chips. The possibilities are endless!
