Tips to Make Homemade Rocky Road Fudge
- Making homemade rocky road fudge with nuts and marshmallow in it is so easy, you’re going to love the combination, if you’ve never had it. It is slightly more complicated than my typical fudge recipe that I would make or post. But that’s because of all the things that make it “rocky road” so that’s kind of part of the deal. Making it with all that only takes just a minute or two, and it’s just so worth it.
- Someone asked in one of my other recipes which pan I like to use for making fudge. I’m not SUPER particular. But, I do like using a square pan like this one so that the cubes of fudge come out evenly.
- Just because you use a square pan, though, doesn’t mean that the fudge magically comes out of the pan in nice neat cubes. The easiest way to do THAT (in my opinion) is to line your pan with parchment paper with a tiny light spray of cooking oil. No matter what, stay away from foil – it will stick to the fudge and you’ll spend all your time peeling bits of aluminum foil off the cubes rather than enjoying it.
How Do I Make this Rocky Road Fudge Recipe?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
- 14 oz jar sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- Line your pan with the parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking oil. Set aside.
- Place the chocolate, butter, and vanilla into a microwave-safe bowl, heating them in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment, until the mixture is fully melted and smooth.
- Fold in the marshmallow fluff and the sweetened condensed milk until fully combined.
- Add marshmallows and ¾ cup walnuts, folding them in until fully combined.
- Pour the fudge into the pan and spread evenly, then top with the remaining walnuts. Because of the marshmallow fluff, this is a super soft fudge, so I recommend you freeze the fudge for one hour before cutting it into cubes, just to make the cutting go more smoothly. I also recommend that you store this fudge in the fridge so it holds its shape.
