Homemade Chocolate Fudge
Give your sweetie Homemade Chocolate Fudge on Valentine’s Day. It is made with semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallows and other ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. My cousin told me it was the best fudge she has ever tasted!
Lightly butter an 8” x 8” dish.
In a small saucepan combine the
sugar, milk, 2 Tbsp. of butter and salt.
Bring to a boil over medium heat,
stirring constantly, then
boil for 5 minutes.
Add the chocolate chips and stir
until melted while still on the heat.
Stir until creamy and all the
chocolate is completely melted.
Remove from the heat and add the
marshmallows, vanilla extract
and nuts (optional).
Stir until the marshmallows are
completely melted and the fudge is
smooth and creamy, work quickly
as it sets up fast.
Pour into the prepared dish and
wait for it to cool and set up.
Cut into squares and wrap tightly in
plastic wrap. I stored mine in

Hubby would love this Diane
My cousin went nuts over this fudge. She said all the fudge she has had was sickening sweet and this was perfect. I make it with semi-sweet chocolate chips so maybe that was the difference.
I’ll have to mske him some
The thing is I’ve become Pavlov’s dog, I just see Diane’s Kitchen, and my mouth starts watering. I don’t even have to know what’s cooking in your kitchen. Anyone else? Hugs, C
😂🤣😂 You must be my biggest fan! Thank you Cheryl!
Thank you Ace!!!❤️
Reblogged this on Ned Hamson's Second Line View of the News.
Thank you so much Ned, I really appreciate it and have a great day!
I have never made fudge at home, and this one is also chocolate. Good sweetness for wind, snow and rain and cold 🙂
This recipe is so easy and delicious, you should give it a try Ultra. Thank you ❤️
Yum!!!! That looks delicious!!
A great idea for Valentine’s indeed. I’m very tempted to make this for the hubby too. Although the peanut brittle is a favourite of his too (he’s made your brittle recipe twice since the first time I made it for him!).
Make him one of each. I wrap my fudge and keep it in the refrigerator. Then I just grab a piece whenever I want it, it keeps really well that way.
Best tip..wrapping them individually! Might prevent me from eating them directly out of the pan!
Yes! That is exactly why I do it and to keep them from drying out. I cut them about 1” and grab 2 every night for a snack. Lol
This is an interesting recipe Diane. It reminds me of the fudge my aunt used to make that pretty much just used sugar, unsweetened chocolate, milk, corn syrup. The addition of the chocolate chips and marshmallows is like a little insurance policy!
My mom was too impatient to make fudge. We all joke that we were in our teens before we learned that fudge wasn’t supposed to be eaten on a spoon…
Oh my goodness Dorothy! That is so funny but I bet it tasted pretty darn good even off of the spoon.
We loved it!
Thank you so much for sharing!
I was bowled over when you added the marshmallows!! My word, this must taste amazing … THANK YOU Diane!
It is very good and the marshmallows give it the best texture not to mention taste. You’re welcome💕
Valentine’s Day is coming. Not a bad idea. Much better than boxed chocolates.
Yes and it is made from the heart. Anyone can buy as sweet. Thank you!
Are those bigger-than-normal marshmallows Diane? They look huge but delicious as does the fudge.
No just regular large marshmallows. Thank you Linda!
The marshmallows are brilliant. This fudge is going to make me look like a Hero.
Hahaha you are already a hero!
Haha! You are the best!
I make this fudge all the time, but use mini marshmallows. It is always a hit.
They would melt better, it is so good!
Everything you post looks so scrumptious 😋
Thank you for your kind words💕
