Microwave Mince Pie Fudge


Microwave Mince Pie Fudge
An easy edible gift for Christmas, this mince pie fudge is made entirely in the microwave. Perfect for last minute gifts (you know the scenario, new neighbours turn up with a tin of chocolates and you've got to reciprocate pretty quickly) and also the perfect addition to a homemade festive hamper. It's a handy recipe to have tucked away and great for using up a half opened jar of mincemeat.

I'd never made fudge in the microwave before, but now I know how easy it is, I'm going to experiment. Next on the list to try is boozy chocolate orange fudge...one of my favourite Christmassy flavour combinations. If you're giving the fudge away as a gift, just pop it into clear cellophane bags once it's completely set and tie with a pretty ribbon. Alternatively, just scoff it all yourself! It is Christmas after all.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING MICROWAVE FUDGE

  • I've given instructions for making the fudge in a 900 watt microwave. Times would need to be adjusted if your microwave is a different wattage.
  • Instead of mincemeat you could try adding dried cranberries and chopped pecan nuts or, for a boozy fudge add 2 TBSP of Bailey's. 
  • The fudge needs to be left to set for 2 hours before cutting. It may still be a bit soft after this time but will firm up a bit more after cutting into cubes. 
  • The fudge needs to be eaten within 3 weeks.

An easy microwave Christmas fudge recipe using mincemeat.

ingredients:


  • 400g Caster Sugar
  • 397g Tin of Condensed Milk
  • 140g Butter, cubed
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 3 TBSP Mincemeat

instructions:


  1. Grease and line a 20cm square tin.
  2. Place the sugar, condensed milk and butter in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for 16 minutes (or until the mixture turns a caramel colour) stirring every 2 minutes. Make sure the bowl is large as the mixture has a habit of spilling over.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and mix in then stir through the mincemeat. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set for 2 hours (do not put in the fridge).
  4. Once cooled, carefully lift the fudge out of the tin using the baking paper and cut into small cubes. The fudge will still be quite sticky at this point but will firm up within an hour or so. Place in an airtight tin or gift bags.
