Elsie has been cooking for sixty years and has many recipes. I'm sharing some with you, some are my mothers recipes, hope you enjoy baking.

Microwave Coconut Fudge

Microwave Coconut Fudge is a very nice cookie to make and can be made and ready to eat within an hour and it's so easy.

This recipe is very, popular recipe with my family, I have been making it for many years it was very good in school lunch boxes.

You don't need to ice it if you think the icing will melt in their lunchbox.

It will taste just as nice without icing, nice and crunchy.

But if you do ice it put it in the fridge for about 30 mins to set.

Then they are ready to eat or to have it with a cup of tea or coffee once the icing is set, very yummy.

It is still made frequently in our home, especially when I get a phone call to say I have visitors arriving

Microwave Coconut Fudge is made very quickly and enjoyed by all.

Chocolate No-Bake Cookies in the Microwave

Few Tips for Making these Microwave Cookies:

  • All ingredients for microwave baking should be at room temperature.
  • A good recipe to make if you haven't cooked cookies in a microwave, as being a biscuit type recipes it doesn't matter if it's cooked a little longer, if it dries out a little more it is alright.
  • You can open the microwave oven door to test the cookies as it will not affect the rising.
  • Chocolate melted in the microwave holds its shape until mixed.

      Hi Elsie, I have never made cookies in the microwave and did not know I could. I like anything with coconut so these should be fine. Hope mine come out. Great Hub, Stella

      You have a culinary adventure here that I think must be tried to be believed. I did not think you could actually cook something in microwave. I need to try this.
