Cooking fudge in a microwave rather than on a stove top is a better option if the cook wants to make the fudge quickly. However, microwaving fudge may lead to uneven cooking.
Making fudge requires mixing the ingredients and melting them together, then pouring the mixture into an aluminum foil-lined pan and refrigerating it until firm. The heating of the ingredients can be done by using either a stove or microwave. The microwave method is the faster alternative but may result in uneven cooking. Depending on the size of the microwave used, it may only be possible to make small batches of fudge at one time.
