Microwave Carob Fudge #SundaySupper

Microwave Carob Fudge

The holidays are always a whirlwind. It’s already November, and I’ve got less than a month to get ready for Thanksgiving and less than two to prepare for Christmas. Sure, that sounds like a lot of time, but I know most of you know the typical holiday time warp.

You know, you blink and suddenly it’s the day before Thanksgiving. If you’re anything like me, you realize you’re out of a few necessary ingredients for baking and cooking. And then I’m busy baking and cooking before I scramble to check out all my favorite websites to grab some good deals before they’re all gone.

And then it will be Christmas in a flash. I’ll be scrambling to wrap presents, send cards, and of course make a lots of yummy goodies.

I love giving my friends homemade treats, but this time of year, I don’t always have time to make recipes with twenty steps and a bunch of specialty ingredients that require me to go to five different stores to find. Easy recipes that taste just as good as if they took me all day to make are my go to in the holiday season.

Microwave Carob Fudge

Enter Microwave Carob Fudge. I’ve already made awesome peanut butter and almond butter fudge recipes in the microwave, but this carob version is my new favorite. As always, feel free to use dark chocolate if you aren’t allergic like me. I wouldn’t use anything sweeter or the fudge will be way too sweet.

This took me less than twenty minutes to whip up. It does have to chill for awhile, but then it’s time to slice and package it. It slices just like all the fancy fudge I’ve seen up in Frankenmuth, about an hour from where I live in Michigan. It’s a fun little town to walk around, and watching them make fudge is so cool. To be able to make something at home that is just as wonderful is awesome and helps me remember my fun trips there.

This treat also happens to be gluten free and nut free, so it’s pretty welcoming to all people who suffer from allergies, making it the perfect gift. I already know I’ll be making a few more batches of this fudge, and you should whip up a couple as well.
