Rocky Road Fudge

Rocky Road is a favorite this time of year and if your still in the mood for sweets, this is a fabulous recipe that you can whip up in no time. It has all the good things that a traditional Rocky Road recipe has -- chocolate, nuts and marshmallows -- but it also has a creamy texture reminiscent of fudge.

Rocky Road Fudge

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips {l bag}
1 - 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Spray an 8x8 inch glass or metal pan with Pam. {I also put some wax paper on the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.} Melt chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in the microwave, stirring until smooth {about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high}. Stir in vanilla extract, then fold in marshmallows and walnuts.

Last year I posted an even easier Rocky Road recipe that is delicious too. Both are wonderful, but of the two this creamy version is my favorite!

Pour into your prepared 8x8 baking dish. Push Rocky Road mixture into the corners of the dish, then place it in your refrigerator to cool and harden.
