Share a little love for Valentine’s Day this year with a homemade fudge that looks like it came from a gourmet candy shop.

But, you can make it in the microwave. And it takes just 10 minutes–and it calls for just 3 easy-to-find ingredients. How lovely is this?!

For this quick and fun Valentine’s Day dessert, all you need is a jar of frosting, a bag of chocolate chips (I went for cherry-flavored chips), and a bag of heart-shaped Dove chocolates.

Though classic candy makers will tell you homemade fudge is a finicky process, you might be surprised to learn that chocolate chips + canned frosting make a lovely batch of “frosting fudge.” Simply microwave chips until melted, stir in frosting, and refrigerate.
