Here are the ingredients:

  • 14 ounces Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 12 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 ½ cups Peanuts (or any nut of your choice)
  • 2 to 4 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

First, pour the sweetened condensed milk into a microwavable bowl.

Add the chocolate chips. You can also add two tablespoons of butter, but this is an optional ingredient.

The butter adds more flavor and gives your chocolate that shine.

Pop the bowl in the microwave for one minute.

If you don’t have a microwavable bowl or a microwave, you can use a saucepan or double-broiler and melt it on the stove at low heat.

Becky cautioned, though, that doing so would require that you pay close attention so the chocolate won’t

While melting the butter, you can spread butter on aluminum foil and line your pan with it.

This is also optional, but this step will make it easier for you to take the fudge out of the foil.

After a minute, take the chocolate out of the microwave and stir.

You’ll see how the chocolate melted beautifully. Plus, that butter sure gives it a bit of shine.

Stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. You can also add a teaspoon of vanilla to add aroma, but this is optional.

Pour all the remaining ingredients into the bowl.

You can use any nut you like – cashews, pecans, almonds, or walnuts – and chop them into smaller pieces.

It’s also up to you how many marshmallows you would like on your fudge. Stir all the ingredients until the nuts and marshmallows are evenly distributed.

Pour the fudge mixture into the pan.

Leave it in the refrigerator for at least two hours. After that, you can take it out of the pan, and that buttered foil will make it such a breeze.

Slice the fudge into bite-sized squares and enjoy with a glass of milk.

You can also place the fudge in a nice container as a gift.

Be it a box, a mason jar, tin can, or parchment paper, and tie it with twine. This makes your gift more personal and heartfelt.

Plus, you can never go wrong with some delicious rocky road fudge bars.
