If you have been hanging around STEAM Powered Family for a while you know we LOVE making candy. It is a great skill for kids to learn, but it also a wonderful, tasty STEM activity. There is some fascinating science that goes into candy making, plus you are working with precise measurements and temperatures that leave little room for error. Add in some colourful creations and candy making is a great STEAM activity!

In our pursuit of science and understanding sugar science, we have sweated over a number of fudge recipes with varying degrees of difficulty. From Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge, to Butterbeer Fudge, to Rainbow Fudge, we have had a really sweet time creating fudge!

But now we have mastered the science of candy, and understand the critical roll of temperature and sugar, it’s time for the super easy, super fast fudge. The one kids can make themselves. That you can throw together when your child comes home and announces there is a party at school tomorrow and you need to provide a treat. The one that you can keep in your back pocket for those emergencies that can only be solved with delicious, sweet, chocolaty fudge.

The Science Behind Easy 2 Ingredient Fudge

The reason we have this option is because the condensed milk has already been processed to reduce its liquid content and been sweetened. Add to this the chocolate and we have the raw material for fudge with all the work and calculations done for us. This saves us a LOT of steps from our previous fudge making projects.

Are you ready? It’s 2 ingredients, takes less than 10 minutes of prep. And oh boy does it taste amazing!

2 Ingredient Fudge Ingredients

8oz semisweet chocolate (we used Baker’s chocolate squares)
1 can (300mls) sweetened condensed milk (we used Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk)

Easy Fudge Making Directions

Line an 8 inch pan with tinfoil and coat with a very light coating of butter.

Grate the chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high until melted. Depending on your microwave it will take about 1 ½ minutes. Microwave 30 seconds and then stir, repeat. When the chocolate starts to melt, microwave in 15 sec increments until it is smooth. The reason for doing this is to prevent the chocolate from scorching.

Carefully remove from the microwave (use oven mitts if the bowl is hot) and add the sweetened condensed milk. Stir until completely blended.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut into pieces (we cut it into 24 pieces) and eat.

Store the fudge in an airtight container in the fridge Do not freeze. I tried, it turns rubbery, yet slimy. Not good. It’s best to eat it immediately. You can always make more quickly and easy because this is Super Fast Fudge!
