The Best Rocky Road Fudge Recipe

Rocky Road Fudge has everything that we all adore in the classic ice cream flavor mixed into a rich chocolate fudge. This is loved by kids and adults and also makes a fantastic Holiday gift.

You just can’t get any easier than this fudge recipe. There are lots of traditional old-fashioned fudge recipes that require a longer cooking time and include candy thermometers, etc… This recipe avoids all of that! Just a glass bowl, 5-ingredients and a pan is all you need for this delicious fudge.

How To Make Rocky Road Fudge

  • Step 1: combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stir everything together until well combined and smooth.
  • Step 2: add vanilla extract, chopped nuts and miniature marshmallows to the chocolate, then pour the chocolate mixture into a pan lined with aluminum foil (or parchment paper). Chill until firm, slice and enjoy!

Notes:

Pan Size: we have made this in a 9″x13″ and 8″x8″ pan and like it both ways. However, most people prefer a “thicker” fudge using the 8″x8″ pan.

Stovetop: If you don’t have a microwave or prefer not to use one, it’s easy to make this recipe on the stove. You can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate and condensed milk together, continually stirring. Proceed with the directions above.

Storing Rocky Road Fudge

This fudge recipe will store perfectly in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for two months. We freeze fudge a lot for the moments you have unexpected company and you need a quick treat to serve. Store the fudge squares in an airtight container layering with parchment paper so they don’t stick together.

We love to make big batches of this fudge and package it up into cans or boxes for Holiday gifts. Everyone just loves it!
