Easy Rocky Road Fudge! 5 ingredients, made in the microwave!!

Making fudge at home doesn’t have to be difficult. With just a few ingredients and tips for how to make chocolate fudge, you are only steps away from a decadent dessert.

Easy Instructions

  • Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Pour 1 cup marshmallows into bottom of dish.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, combine semi sweet and milk chocolate with peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and add an additional 30 seconds. Continue stirring until smooth (you may need to microwave an additional 30-60 seconds). Mine took about 60 seconds total.

Recipe FAQs

  • I don’t have a microwave, can Rocky Road Fudge be made on the stove top?
  • Yes! I would use a double boiler to melt the chocolate (or a glass bowl over a pot of simmering/boiling water). Melt your chocolate and peanut butter together, until smooth.

  • We’re allergic to peanuts, are there substitutions?
  • You can substitute Biscoff for the peanut butter in this recipe. Skip the peanuts (or substitute with a tree nut, like almonds, if you are not allergic)
  • Can Rocky Road Fudge be frozen?
  • Definitely! Wrap the fudge tightly in plastic wrap or wax paper. Then wrap in foil and place in an airtight container or freezer safe ziploc bag. You can store for 3 months in the freezer. When ready to use, thaw at room temperature, still wrapped.

    1. I don’t care if it’s called Heavenly Hash or Rocky Road, I’ll still eat it! I love the ice cream, and the fudge looks incredible. Adding it to my list of recipes to make for neighbors this year.

    2. I so remember Heavenly Hash ice cream! And I’m not so old either. lol This fudge looks delicious. I’ve made one similar but love the idea of marshmallows on the bottom. And so easy. It will be the perfect addition to my Christmas tins.

    3. I made the Rocky Road fudge for our family Christmas Eve party. It was a big hit! And get this! My fussiest child, my adult son, was the one that said, “what is that candy mom?” That is so good!
