I have to admit that I LOVE chocolate. When it comes to trying to lose a few pounds I can easily cutout fats, candies, snacks, calories, just whatever, but I can not cutout chocolate. When I am running low on energy, at about 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I pop in a mini bite-size chocolate and I am ready to take on the world again – or at least prepare dinner. I don’t always have mini chocolates in my house so when I reach that point and need a chocolate pick-me-up, the boys and I throw together some marshmallow fudge – It only takes 10 minutes. We quite often choose this as our Family Home Evening treat. The boys can help me make it before we begin and it is ready by the time Family Home Evening is over. Perfect.
- 3 cups Milk Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 cup Miniature Marshmallows
Melt the chocolate chips and condensed milk together in a sauce pan. After melted remove from heat and stir in marshmallows. Press into a 8″ x 8″ pan that has been buttered.
Melt the chocolate chips (I sometimes use high-quality chocolate chopped up, the kind you use for dipping candies, instead of chocolate chips) and condensed milk together in a sauce pan. After melted remove from heat and stir in marshmallows. Note: Sometimes we replace the mini marshmallows with marshmallow cream to create a swirled look. This is a great idea if you don’t like biting into little pockets of marshmallow, but enjoy the taste and creamy fluff texture marshmallow creates. Press into a 8″ x 8″ pan that has been buttered.
Now place the pan into the fridge or freeze to help the fudge set up quickly and you will be biting into some smooth creamy fudge in less than an hour. Enjoy!
