Rocky Road Fudge is a smooth chocolate fudge packed with crunchy nuts and sweet, chewy marshmallows. This recipe works with any type of nuts, but we especially love using walnuts or pecans.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 oz.) can condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp.) butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/4 cup toasted nuts (coarsely chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Prepare an 8-inch by 8-inch or 9-inch by 9-inch pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave it in one-minute increments until melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Stir to ensure all the chocolate is melted, then add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the candy is smooth and well-mixed. Add 1 cup of the marshmallows and 1 cup of the nuts and stir until well-combined.

  4. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup marshmallows and 1/4 cup nuts on top of the fudge and press gently so that they're embedded in the surface.

  5. Place the fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours. Once set, cut into 1-inch squares and serve at room temperature. Store excess fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
