how to make marshmallow fudge
With five ingredients and a few tools, you're minutes away from delicious marshmallow fudge with mini marshmallows and marshmallow fluff.
tools you will need
- 8 or 9-inch square baking pan
- non-stick foil
ingredients you'll need:
- 2 ⅔ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
- 7 ounce jar of marshmallow fluff (creme)
- pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
step one: Prepare your pan
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray or shortening, or line with greased parchment or non-stick foil.
For thicker fudge, try an 8-inch square pan.
I prefer preparing the pan by lining with the parchment or non-stick foil, lightly sprayed with cooking spray. This way, it's easy to lift your finished fudge out of the pan to cut.
step two: microwave your ingredients
In a large, microwave-safe bowl place 2 ⅔ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, and a 7-ounce jar of marshmallow fluff (creme).
Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Use the residual heat to stir the mixture well until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth. If necessary, microwave for additional 15 second intervals.
Be sure to only microwave until the chips are about three-quarters of the way melted and then stir until fully melted as to not overheat the chocolate.

or, use the stove-top
Alternatively, melt the chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and milk in the top of a double boiler or in a bowl on top of a saucepan of simmering water.
step three: finish up your fudge
Remove from the heat and stir in a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Gently fold in 1 ½ cups of mini marshmallows. Don't worry! The mixture should be cool enough now not to melt the marshmallows. OR, keep the mini marshmallows in the refrigerator before adding.
Pour and spread into the prepared pan.
Chill until well set, several hours. Cut into squares. Makes about 25 pieces.
can I substitute evaporated milk for the sweetened condensed milk?
Eek! No! This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, which is a great shortcut for easy fudge because it allows you to skip the candy-making stage of creating a sugar syrup. However, evaporated milk is not the same thing, and it cannot be used as a substitute.

Delicious, 5-ingredient marshmallow fudge with chocolate, marshmallows, and marshmallow fluff.
- 2 ⅔ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 16 ounces
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounces
- 1 jar marshmallow creme 7 ounces (marshmallow fluff)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- 1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
Prepare a 9-inch or 8-inch (for slightly thicker fudge) pan by lining it with lightly greased parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil. Set aside.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl place the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and marshmallow creme. Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Use the residual heat to stir the mixture well until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth. If necessary, microwave for additional 15 second intervals.
If you prefer the stove-top instead of the microwave, melt the mixture in the top of a double boiler or in a bowl on top of a saucepan of simmering water.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and pinch of salt. Gently fold in the marshmallows.
Pour the chocolate marshmallow mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Chill until well set, several hours. Cut into squares.
Chill the mini marshmallows, if you like, before adding so the heat doesn't melt them.

I absolutely love marshmallows in fudge!
I made this. Tastes delicious, but is so sticky I can hardly cut squares. Wanted to give as gifts but hate to. Any ideas as to how to salvage?
Hi Rita, Fudge can be too soft and sticky because chocolate can be so finicky (and different brands have different effects). Sometimes you can re-melt and add more chocolate, but not sure how that would work since there are marshmallows in the mixture. I would try putting the fudge in the refrigerator overnight! If you want to try the re-melting method (the marshmallows will likely melt), we have instructions here: https://howtomakeeasyfudge.com/easy-fudge-recipe-faq/
I love how easy and clear your instructions are! Thank you!
