Easy Old Fashioned Microwave Fudge

Not only is this fudge easy, but it will remind you of the old fashioned fudge that was cooked in a big skillet and you had to stir until it got to the right consistency!! All our family loves it and my sister usually makes up several batches for us and some to give as gifts.
