MINCE PIE FUDGE MADE IN THE MICROWAVE


An easy edible gift (especially at Christmas), this mince pie fudge is made entirely in the microwave.

Perfect for last minute gifts and also a lovely addition to a homemade 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 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!

Mincemeat

WHAT IS MINCEMEAT?


Sweet mincemeat is a mixture of currants, raisins, sugar, apples, candied peel, brandy and spices. It also contains suet, although vegetarian mincemeat (using vegetable shortening in place of the suet) is now readily available. 

It's believed the origins of mincemeat date back as early as the 12th Century, with cooks using it as a way to preserve meat.

It's traditionally used as the filling to mince pies, a quintessentially British pie, usually made at Christmas.

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 Mince Pie Fudge recipe made in the microwave.

      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.
