It’s time to make the Rocky Road Fudge.
I made this fudge in the microwave.
One thing that I LOVED about it is that the addition of the marshmallows in the bowl, when the chocolate is melting, gave the mixture a lovely consistency that made it not only easy to stir, but also to blend, mix and pour into the prepared pan.
It is, by far, the easiest fudge I have ever made.
Each bite of this delicious sweet treat has a hint of vanilla, the sweet taste of marshmallows and the rich decadent dark chocolate.
This recipe is sure to become a family tradition for the holidays, when the family cries “mum, please make some rocky road fudge!”
The biggest problem you will have is not devouring the whole pan as soon as it has set. IT IS THAT GOOD!!
There is just something about all those ingredients that just seem to go together as though they were made for each other!
