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.
  • 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: If you only have salted butter, omit the salt in the recipe.
