What is 2 Ingredient Fudge?

This two ingredient fudge is the easiest to make because it really has only 2 simple ingredients. Chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Any recipe that only has two ingredients is a winner in my book. It doesn’t require a thermometer and it is the the fastest and easiest fudge you’ll ever make.

I’m always looking for desserts to make that are easy and only require a few ingredients. A few of my favorite easy dessert recipes are these oreo balls, my no-bake cookies, or simple cheesecake stuffed strawberries.

Ingredients to Make Fudge

Only 2 ingredients are needed to make this indulgent treat. It’s hard to believe it’s that simple, but it is! That’s what makes this the easiest 2 ingredient fudge in the world.

2 Ingredient Fudge Recipe

Combine the 2 fudge ingredients in a mixing bowl, heat in the microwave, then stir until the chocolate is melted. That’s all it takes! Follow my detailed instructions below on the recipe card. You’ll be enjoying this 2 ingredient fudge in no time!

  1. Prepare the Pan: Line an 8×5 inch bread pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with pan spray. You may use an 8×8 pan instead, but the fudge will not be as thick.
  2. Melt and Combine the Chocolate Chips and Sweetened Condensed Milk: Add the chocolate chips and the sweetened condensed milk to a large microwave-safe mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes, using 45-second intervals at 50% power. Stir after each interval until the chocolate is completely melted. The mixture will be thick and begin to look matte when it is done.
  3. Transfer to the Pan and Set the Fudge: Lastly, transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press over the top smoothing the fudge with a rubber spatula or an offset spatula. Cover and let sit for at least 2 hours, or until completely set and firm.
  4. Cut the Fudge and Enjoy: Once set, use the parchment to lift the fudge from the pan then cut into squares.

You can store leftover fudge in anairtight containeror wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. Keep for up to 7 days at room temperature or up to a week in the fridge. It will still be edible after that time, but it may become dry and crumbly.
