Rocky Road Fudge is loaded with chopped almonds and marshmallows. It’s ultra-rich and only takes 10 minutes to make.
I don’t think anything makes a more welcome food gift than rich and chocolaty fudge. You show up on my doorstep with a tin full of fudge and we will be friends for life. It’s my favorite and I’ve been known to make a batch of fudge and eat pretty much every last piece of it.
This Rocky Road Fudge is both fun and delicious and I think it appeals to kids and adults. It has a rich, super sweet base made from sugar, evaporated milk, melted chocolate chips, and marshmallow creme with lots of chopped almonds and mini marshmallows mixed in.
I love the way the almonds taste but you could use another nut or a mixture of nuts. Pecans and walnuts are good too.
I’m going to put this Rocky Road Fudge right up there with Buckeye Fudge and German Chocolate Fudge as one of my favorite fudge recipes to make for Christmas.

Does it take 5 oz of evaporated milk or a 12oz can?
I’m not sure why these didn’t turn out..when the condensed milk and sugar was cooking, it didn’t take the full 4 min before it started to fizz and overflow. The choc chips turned it a light brown color, not dark brown and it didn’t set.
I feel your pain. I had the same experience. I put the fudge in the refrigerator for 2 days to dry it out, then I managed to cut it in pieces (more like lumps ‘cuz it was still mushy) and then put each piece in a mini baking cup liner to let it dry out a couple more days. End result is a very ugly but tasty fudge.
Maybe the recipe would be more successful if you followed it! The recipe as written calls for evaporated milk, not condensed milk. They are VERY different products and a novice cook could easily make the mistake. Please be sure to read, and re-read the recipe before reviewing it.
I thought it turned out well – and I followed the recipe as written.
I followed the recipe as written, using the evaporated milk, and it came out light brown and grainy. I feel like something is missing in the directions.
