4 Ingredient Rocky Road Fudge Recipe

A few weeks ago, my kids were asking for a quick and yummy treat. This fudge is something that my mom used to make every Christmas and I remembered how simple it is- no oven needed, just a microwave and some mad stirring skills! The kids loved being in on the action and helping with every step of the recipe.

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet works too!)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped peanuts


  1. Line a large 9x13" baking pan with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, pour in the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Cook in the microwave for about 60 seconds, remove and stir. Continue to microwave at 15 second intervals (stirring after each one) until the chocolate chips are completely melted and smooth.
  3. Fold in the marshmallows and nuts until they are fully incorporated.
  4. Press the fudge mixture into the baking pan and place in the fridge for about 60 minutes to let it set up (stick in the freezer if you want it to set up faster).
  5. When set, lift foil from pan and cut fudge into squares.

    My mom used to make this every Christmas season as well, and now I love to make a batch (or two or three) of it for my own fam during the holidays! I am always so amazed at my cooking skillzzz when I make this because it NEVER fails! It helps that it only requires four ingredients :)

    I have made this for years bit call it candy not fudge. I use dry roasted salted peanuts and don't chop them. The contrast of a little bit of salt and the sweetness of the chocolate is wonderful. My father-in-law used to wash the plastic disposable plate and bring it give to me with the reasoning that that way I could send him more. We re-used that throw away plate every Thanksgiving and Christmas for years. Wish he were still here and I would make more for him right this minute.

    This is JUST the way I make fudge. Granted, I've never added nuts and marshmallows, since I'm a chocolate fudge purist, but I love the way this turns out perfect every time with chips and sweetened condensed milk. Thanks for sharing! I'm sure my husband would love this.
