You don't need a stove to make candy, many recipes can be made right in the microwave. This is a great way to teach kids to cook.

So quick, easy, and oh so good!


  • 1 (11-12 oz.) pkg. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (11-12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup unsalted peanuts (dry roasted)
  • 8 oz. mini marshmallows


Mix chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 3 minutes, stirring often, until mixture is smooth. Make sure to watch so that you don't burn. Some microwaves work faster, so you might not need to melt for the full 3 minutes.


When mixture is smooth, stir in the marshmallows and peanuts. Spread in a buttered 9 inch pan. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares. Makes about 2 dozen pieces. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

Here's a great Microwave Fudge recipe, taken from the Sharp Carousel Convection Microwave Cookbook, copyright 1983 by Sharp Electronics Corp. The book is full of great info, and the old oven it came with is still working! The recipe:


3 Cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best)
1 Can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/4 Cup oleo or butter (butter is best)
1 Cup chopped walnuts

1. Place all ingredients except nuts in a large microwaveable bowl.
2. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) until chocolate chips are melted, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking. Stir in nuts. Pour into a well-greased baking dish, 8 X 8 inches. Refrigerate until set. Enjoy!
