When it comes to S’mores anything sign me up. Heck I’ve been known to just make a quick S’mores in the oven when the craving strikes. And yes the craving can strike any time of year. But of course, what’s better than a S’mores treat than in the summer time? Like my easy S’mores Rice Krispie Treats, S’mores Bars, or my S’mores Cupcakes. Yes I’m a tad obsessed with all things S’mores.

And when it’s too gosh darn blazing hot out and you need a simple, quick dessert to bring to a potluck or summer party then S’mores fudge is the way to go. This S’mores fudge recipe is sweet, and rich and chock full of graham crackers and marshmallows. Who needs a campfire?! Not me friend.

I used my easy chocolate fudge recipe for the base of this Smores fudge, and added in the graham crackers and marshmallows. But then I got to thinking…what makes a S’mores a S’mores? Yes higher level thinking happening over here can you tell? And to me it’s that toasted marshmallow effect. So I decided to give the marshmallows on top a quick toast with my kitchen torch and that’s when this S’mores fudge truly came alive.

Why You Will Love This S’mores Fudge Recipe

  • Made on the stovetop (or could be made in your microwave)
  • Uses just 5 ingredients – it’s an easy fudge recipe made with condensed milk
  • No candy thermometer!
  • Perfect no bake treat for hot summer months
  • Takes minutes to mix together
  • Made in just one bowl

Ingredients Needed

  • Chocolate – I used semi-sweet chocolate but you can also use milk chocolate chips (but this will make for a sweeter fudge). You can use chips or baking chocolate bars finely chopped up. Be sure to use quality chocolate here as the chocolate flavor will really stand out.
  • Condensed milk – Make sure you are grabbing a can of sweetened condensed milk and NOT evaporated milk (they are not the same thing and will make for a runny fudge)
  • Butter – I used unsalted butter, but salted butter also works (just omit the extra pinch of salt).
  • Salt – I like to throw in a pinch of salt to help balance out the sweetness. If using salted butter, then omit.
  • Vanilla – You can use either pure vanilla or imitation vanilla extract. Be sure to add this OFF the heat, so it doesn’t burn off.
  • Graham crackers – You want to crush these up into pieces. They don’t need to crushed into crumbs but bigger pieces that you can see throughout the fudge and bite into. I like to also sprinkle some on top at the end once the fudge is in the pan.
  • Marshmallows– I used mini marshmallows. I like to also sprinkle more on top and give them a toast for a true S’mores taste.

Toasting The Marshmallows

Ok optional fun step for you is to toast the mini marshmallows on top before serving to give this fudge that true S’mores taste. You definitely don’t have and skip this step if you want but also why not?

I used a small kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows but you could also put the fudge under your broiler for a minute. Please keep an eye on this if you broil because it won’t take long for the marshmallows to burn and the fudge to start melting!

Recipe Tips

  • Line your pan with parchment paper or tinfoil. And make sure to leave some excess overhang so it’s easier to remove from the pan when it’s time to cut the fudge into squares.
  • Cook over a medium-low heat. Do not turn the heat up too high or you may end up with burnt chocolate and your fudge may come out grainy.
  • Use a heavy-bottomed saucepan. You want to make sure to use a heavy-bottomed quality saucepan so the fudge doesn’t burn while it’s on the stovetop.
  • Stir constantly. Be sure to stir constantly, using a heat-resistant spatula, so as not to let the chocolate burn on the bottom.
  • Cut the fudge while it’s cold. When you remove the fudge from the fridge, immediately cut the the fudge into squares while it’s cold. It will be easier to cut when it’s cold.
  • Use a hot knife to cut the fudge. I run a sharp chef’s knife under hot water, then wipe clean, and then cut the fudge. The hot knife will slice cleanly through the fudge.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (355 g, 18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) unsalted butter
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (142 g) graham crackers (about 8 crackers) plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 cups miniature marshmallows plus more for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper or foil and set aside. I like to leave an overhang so I can easily lift the fudge out and cut it into squares.
  • In a medium heavy-duty bottomed saucepan, set over medium-low heat, combine the chocolate chips, butter and condensed milk, and salt together. Stir using a heat-resistant sturdy spatula until melted and smooth. Be sure to stir constantly so the chocolate doesn't burn. (Alternately you can do this in your microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and combined).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Stir in the graham crackers and marshmallows.
  • Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Top with additional marshmallows and sprinkle on additional graham cracker crumbs. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Using a kitchen torch, lightly toast the marshmallows on top. Or you can place the pan under your broiler for 1 minute (keep a close eye so they don't burn! Yours may not take a full minute) to toast.
  • Remove the fudge from the pan, lifting out the paper, and then cut into squares and serve.

Notes

  • Storage: You can store the homemade chocolate fudge will last in a covered container, at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, or in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
  • Freezing: Because of the marshmallows I don’t recommend freezing.

  • Condensed milk – Make sure you are grabbing a can of sweetened condensed milk and NOT evaporated milk (they are not the same thing and will make for a runny fudge)
  • Butter: If you only have salted butter, omit the salt in the recipe.

    This is a great base fudge recipe. If you want to go all out, like I did, also make Heather’s homemade graham crackers & marshmallows. It was a bunch of extra work, but very cool to be able to tell people you made everything by hand. They taste so good, over the top sweet but it’s sugar on top of sugar, what do you expect. Using store bought graham crackers & marshmallows also makes for an amazing dessert of s’more fudge. What are you doing sitting there at your computer? Go make some!

    1. aww thank you for such kind words Kathryn and glad you had fun making this fudge – way to go you for taking the extra step to make all the parts from scratch!
