Rocky Road Fudge

The next few days I will be sharing some quick and easy gifts from the kitchen.  I know there are you procrastinators that are still shopping or you may have a person who you just haven’t found the right gift for.  These will all be great last minute gifts or a great addition to your holiday menu. Last year I tried out a recipe for Rocky Road Fudge from one of my good blogging friends, Leigh Anne over at Your Home Based Mom

The recipe came from her mom.  The recipe was a holiday specialty that her mom has been making for 40 years.  You know a recipe with that good of a track record has to be fabulous and IT WAS!

This rocky road fudge is easy and delicious.  This recipe requires no candy thermometer.  This is now a Christmas must for me to make each year.  Below is my adaption of Leigh Anne’s recipe.  You can make it with or without the nuts.  If I leave to nuts out, I just add more marshmallows.  I bought some mini muffin liners from the grocery store to put squares of fudge in and placed them in a cute box along with the recipe I will share with you tomorrow.

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 4 C sugar
  • 1 ½ C evaporated milk
  • 20 large marshmallows
  • 12 oz pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1-2 cups chopped walnuts optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions
 

  • Place miniature marshmallows on a cookie sheet and freeze.  You want to give them a couple of hours in the freezer.  This will prevent them from melting in the fudge.
  • In a large pot, combine the  sugar, milk and the 20 large marshmallows.  Bring to a boil and  boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly. (Don't be alarmed by the brown bits that will appear while cooking the mixture.)
  • Remove from heat and mix in the chocolate chips and butter.  Stir until thick then add the walnuts.
  • Let it sit a little longer to thicken more and mix in the vanilla and frozen marshmallows.  Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan and allow to set.
