I found this dish over at Alli N Son and was fascinated immediately.
Don’t let the name of this dish scare you away: it’s completely wonderful any time of year. Better yet, it’s made with candy bars, and so you can change the flavor and texture of this dish merely by adding a different type of candy.
The pros of this recipe don’t stop there. It’s super simple to make – which makes this candy-challenged girl very happy – and it’s kid friendly. My two had a fantastic time chopping up the candy.
Finally, the taste: this fudge is rich, smooth, and creamy. A little bit goes a long way, but unlike most fudges, I wasn’t done for the year – only for the day. This sweet will keep you coming back for more.
We shared a few pieces with My Big Helper’s teachers, and that night we were surprised to get a phone call from one. She wanted to personally thank us for the fudge and to ask us for the recipe!
Here’s how you make it:
- Line an 8X8 or 9X9″ pan with parchment paper, leaving extra on two sides for handles.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 3 c. of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 c. mini marshmallows, a pinch of sea salt, and 1 1/2 t. vanilla until smooth. Since my microwave was still out of commission, I did this on the stovetop with low heat and lots of stirring.
- Stir in 1 1/2 c. chopped candy bars. We used peanut butter cups.
- Pour into the prepared pan, smoothing out. Chill for two hours.
- Cut into small pieces and store in the fridge.
Yum! Thanks, Alli!
