Holiday fudge is a favorite treat in our house….but I am not good at using an candy thermometer. Every time I try I never seem to get it right and end up with sugary goo….not melt in your deliciousness. So, I have figured out a trick! This is a no thermometer method that works every time! I have added and deleted different ingredients (peanuts, pretzel pieces. Or Nutella instead of peanut butter). Add sprinkles that go with your holiday and have a hit every time!
Rocky-Road Easy Chocolate Fudge
- 2 cups of mini marshmallows
- 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
- 12 oz milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- 3/4 cups rice krispies
- 2 tsp vanilla
- sprinkles (optional)
Cover a 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper. Sprinkle half of the mini marshmallows in the pan.
In a microwaveable safe bowl add all chocolate chips, peanut butter and vanilla and microwave at 30 second at a time until melted. Add in rice krispies and the rest of the marshmallows and combine.
Wit a spatula, spread mixture in pan and distribute sprinkles if desired. Chill in refrigerator at least one hour before cutting into one inch pieces.
