Rocky road has always been one of my favorite ice cream flavors. Which makes this salty, sweet, crunchy sensation one of my favorite treats.

Rocky Road Fudge Recipe Ingredients

You’ll only need three simple ingredients for this recipe:

  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips. Use whatever brand you like best.
  • Peanut butter. Stick to chunky peanut butter for that awesome rocky road texture.
  • Mini marshmallows. You can even get the colored ones for an extra fun recipe.

How to Make Rocky Road Fudge

This quick, no-bake recipe couldn’t be simpler. There are only four basic steps.

1. Grease your pan. A square 9×9-inch pan works best.

2. Melt the chocolate and peanut butter. Warm them in a saucepan over low heat until the chocolate chips melt completely. Stir occasionally.

3. Add the marshmallows. Stir them in gently.

4. Let it set. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Then, let it harden on the counter or in the refrigerator.

If you want to make them easier to cut, freeze them overnight. Then, cut, serve, and enjoy!

How Long Can You Store Rocky Road Fudge?

Fudge will easily last up to two weeks in the refrigerator when placed inside an air-tight container or a Ziploc bag.

If you’re using a container, just be sure to separate the layers with wax paper or parchment to keep them from sticking together.

Can You Freeze Rocky Road Fudge?

If you’re like me and want to savor these a little longer, you can freeze them for up to two months.

There’s nothing better than pulling out this decadent dessert from the freezer.

My grandmother does this with homemade bread. She freezes it, then pulls it out once a week as a special treat.

Whip up a batch of this rocky road fudge. Then, store it in the freezer, and you’ll have a tasty treat to look forward to every weekend! Here’s how to freeze it:

  1. Place a layer of fudge in a freezer-safe container.
  2. Put a piece of wax paper on top of the fudge.
  3. Add another layer of fudge.
  4. Continue until you’ve stored all the fudge or reached the top of your container.
  5. Store the container in an upright position in the freezer.

When you want to serve it, simply remove it from the freezer and place it at room temperature to thaw.

If you notice a layer of moisture on top, pat it dry with a paper towel.

A fun variation…

If you want to shake things up a bit, you can try some of these fun variations.

  • Turn them into s’mores. Place one cracker on top and one on the bottom. This gives the fudge a great s’mores-like flavor and experience.
  • Add a topping. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers or Teddy Grahams over the top for a nice crunch.
  • Add a graham cracker crust. Mix butter and crushed graham crackers together. Then, line the bottom of your pan with the mixture.
  • Give it some add-ins. Add M&M’s, pretzels, caramel, or anything your heart desires. Have fun with it!

Or simply stick to the original recipe. You really can’t go wrong.
