Instant Pot Fudge Method

If you own an instant pot you can use it as a double boiler to melt you chocolate chips and your sweetened condensed milk together! 

It is quick and easy and you don’t have to worry about the microwave over cooking your chocolate! 

Microwave Method To Melting Chocolate

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

How Long Does It Take Fudge to Set Up 

Fudge needs time to set up so it holds the shape. You can speed up the process and pace the fudge in the fridge. Or allow it to cool and then cover and let sit on the counter.

You will also find that all fudge is different. Depending on the ratio that gets mixed up you might find the fudge sets up faster and sometimes it is a bit slower. 

Are The Layers of Fudge Flavored

Yes, each layer of fudge offers a different flavor. Not only is it colorful but loaded with fruity flavor in every bite.

Then top with jelly beans for a sweet treat no one can resist.

The perfect Easter dessert to bring to the holiday gathering. Or if you have an excess after the Easter holiday make this fudge for a fun treat to break up the week.

Can You Freeze Fudge

You can freeze fudge if you don’t plan to eat it all right away. Simply allow the fudge to set up and cool completely. Then slice or leave whole and place in a freezer container or freezer bag. 

Store up to 2-3 months and allow fudge to thaw on the counter or in the fridge overnight before slicing and serving. 

You can make a double batch of this fudge if you would like. I have done that and then froze one whole batch and saved the rest to eat and take to events.
