What You'll Need
With just a few pantry ingredients you can put together a pan of chocolate marshmallow fudge in minutes.
- Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chip - One 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips or 2 cups is what you need for an 8x8 pan.
- Butter - A little bit helps the chips melt easier and gives it a smooth texture. Salted or unsalted is fine.
- Canned Frosting - A container of ready made milk chocolate frosting is the base of "milk and sugar" that you are going to melt into the fudge mixture.
- Mix-ins - Mini marshmallows, crumbled graham crackers, and small Hershey's chocolate bars give this fudge a delicious s'mores look and taste.
How to make S'mores Fudge
Line an 8x8 square pan with foil or foil lined parchment paper. This will allow you to lift the fudge out easily later.
Start by measuring out your marshmallows, chopping your candy bars, and breaking the graham crackers into chunks. Make sure to set aside some of each for the very top of the fudge.
Place the milk chocolate chips and butter in a large saucepan over low to medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat.
Remove the foil lid from the can of store bought frosting and microwave it for 30 seconds. Give it a stir, then pour it over the melted chocolate in the pan.
Place it back on low heat and stir until it is melted and smooth. Remove it from the stove and let it cool for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the mini marshmallows, graham crackers, and candy bars. Stir everything together very quickly, and pour it into the prepared pan.
Press the extra s'mores ingredients into the top of the warm fudge. This is optional, but it really makes the chocolate marshmallow fudge prettier.
- Make sure you are melting the ingredients over low to medium heat. A higher heat can burn or scorch the chocolate.
- Do not skip the cooling step. If you add your chocolate bars and marshmallows to the hot fudge, they will melt into it.
- Add the additional toppings right away. Once the fudge sets, they will not stick.
- Use a hot knife to cut the chocolate fudge into squares. Run it under hot water and dry it off between cuts.
Why is my fudge soft?
Different brands of chocolate chips can affect how the fudge sets up. Also, adding too much butter can make it set up softer.
How do you store fudge?
Place squares of fudge in an air tight container. It will keep for 5-7 days on the counter or 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Can you freeze fudge?
Yes, you can. The best way to freeze fudge is to wrap the uncut block of fudge in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer safe bag. Freeze for 1-2 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight; cut into squares before serving.
