Today, I’m thrilled to introduce Si, from A Bountiful Kitchen and her super yummy Rocky Road Fudge!

Hi my name is Si and I blog at  A Bountiful Kitchen.   I’m married to Grant, a mom to four kids and one naughty dog named Jack.  I love love love to cook and bake.

Today I’m sharing a super simple idea for holiday candy.

Homemade candy?

Don’t tune me out yet 🙂
I promise this is the most simple recipe for homemade candy you will ever make. No thermometer required. If you have a microwave, you can make this treat, fit for gift giving. Here’s the skinny:
Three ingredients.
One pan.
You can do it.

Grocery List:

  • 1 large bag marshmallows, I like Kraft
  • 1 lb dipping chocolate
  • 2 cups walnuts or pecans
Cut or tear the marshmallows in half.
Measure out two cups of nuts, for Rocky Road Fudge, I prefer walnuts.
I like them chunky, so no chopping for me.  If you like them smaller, chop away 🙂
Place the dipping chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for one minute.
Give the chocolate a stir, continue microwaving in thirty second increments, until chocolate is smooth.
Pour the chocolate over the nuts and marshmallows in a large bowl
or right into the greased pan.

Place the pan in the fridge or freezer for a quick set (about 10-20 minutes).  Remove and cut in to 2×2 inch chunks. Place in cellophane bags and tie with festive ribbon. This keeps well for about a week if sealed in a bag.

  1. My grandad used to make rocky road fudge at family gatherings. I haven’t had any since he passed away over 8 years ago. I’m definitely going to be making this!

  2. These look great, and very easy as you promised! I’m looking forward to trying these. I imagine they’ll look good in the cellophane too with the contrast between the dark of the chocolate and the white of the marshmallows.

  3. This is not fudge, and for you to be from a “southern kitchen”, quite frankly I’m surprised you’re passing it as such. This is just chocolate coated nuts & marshmallows, not at all fudge in any way way shape or form. Not saying it’s bad, just call it what it is, rocky road clusters not rocky road fudge.
