A microwave undoubtedly helps to streamline the process of preparing food, but you might not have realized how many sweet treats can be effectively microwaved.
If you lack the time to leave a dessert baking in the oven for 45 minutes, here are just some microwaveable options you could seriously consider.
White cranberry walnut nutmeg fudge
This white chocolate fudge is packed with cranberries and walnuts as well as flavored with rum — and the overall result looks gorgeous.
I'm so excited to prepare so many #recipes of #drinks, #cocktails, #Moonshine, #food - I'm ready to get down to work! #Moonshinerecipe
The allrecipes website quotes reviewer katbarla advising that you chop up the dried cranberries before you put them in — as, that way, you shouldn’t overly struggle to cut the finished fudge into squares.
Peanut butter chocolate swirl fudge
Yes, it’s another fudge treat — and this one calls for just three ingredients as well as a five-minute stint in the microwave.
Home cook Catbird has been quoted by allrecipes as enthusing: “I really liked this recipe because it was quick and requires only a few ingredients and you can adjust it.” For example, you can add nuts to the mixture or vary the amount of chocolate you put in.
Peanut butter popcorn
If you like to spend many evenings binge-watching Netflix but don’t currently have your own microwave, rest assured that there are many attractive online deals for microwaves with which this wonderfully gooey popcorn can be made.
It is basically popcorn coated with microwaved butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows — and great for fostering a movie-theater atmosphere in your home.
Blueberry, coconut, and pistachio chocolate bark
You would start making this by melting dark chocolate in the microwave. However, remember to have pistachios, coconut chips, orange zest, and dried blueberries ready for sprinkling on the chocolate before it sets up, as this will happen quickly.
Insanely Good Recipes describes this light, fluffy, and caramel-coated popcorn as “one of the most addictive snacks in the universe. Ever!”
This treat is also delightfully easy to make in the microwave at various times of day. The site explains: “All you’ll need are brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, baking soda, and the microwave, and voila.”
Yes, that lockdown favorite is still well worth making. To actually make some, you will need a ripe banana, a tablespoon of butter, three tablespoons of flour, half a teaspoon of baking powder, an egg, a dash of vanilla, a dash of milk, and two tablespoons of coconut sugar or brown sugar.
After mixing all of this, you should microwave it for two minutes, mix again, and then microwave for another minute.
Cosmopolitan has posted an ingredients list for brownies, which you can commence making by microwaving two tablespoons of butter alongside chocolate pieces, cocoa powder, or Nutella.
Once you have microwaved this for 30 seconds or until the mixture has melted, you can add a tablespoon of brown sugar, a tablespoon of white sugar, a drop of vanilla, a drop of milk, and two tablespoons of flour — and microwave all of this together for a minute.
