Rocky Road Fudge – Sweet Treats

This is the other fudge recipe I made with Aidan and his friends last w/e for their sweet making party. This is very much another safe fudge recipe to do with children and was a little on the sticky and sweet side. However all of it was eagerly eaten by the teens. I would make it again with younger children but I’d get teens to do something more challenging next time. I’ve adjusted the quantities slightly as I thought there were too many marshmallows. We made it without walnuts as a couple of the boys weren’t keen on walnuts. Since it needed something else on other than marshmallows I put on the white chocolate chips and sprinkled on some chewable silver balls. (I came across the chewable silver balls in the baking section of my local co-op, for reasons I don’t understand kids & teens love silver balls on cakes & ice cream etc but they are usually so hard I worry about impact on teeth. Hard silver balls would definitely not work on fudge)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp Vegetable oils
  • 150g mini marshmallows
  • 250g plain chocolate chips
  • 1 can (430ml approx) condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250g chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 100g white chocolate chips (optional)
  • (chewable) Silver balls (optional)

Method

  1. Line a 20cm baking tin with tin foil, use some kitchen towel to rub with oil
  2. Put chocolate chips and condensed milk in a bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Then stir, if not melted return bowl to microwave for another 30 secs 1 or 2 more times stirring each time (be care not to get the chocolate too hot).
  3. Gently stir the vanilla essence, most of the marshmallows and walnuts into the chocolate mixture
  4. Scape the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top
  5. Sprinkle fuge with remaining marshmallows, white chocolate chips and silver balls if using and press down gently.
  6. Put in fridge for an hour
  7. Lift foil to remove fudge from tin, peel away foil and cut into pieces.
