Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge

This chocolate marshmallow fudge is so creamy and decadent. It has mini marshmallows swirled into it and a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips mixed in. If you need a pretty Christmas fudge to take to your next holiday party, this is a crowd-pleaser.

Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge Recipe

This chocolate fudge with marshmallow cream has an extra dose of marshmallow! After the fudge is all whipped together, I pour half of the fudge into the prepared pan, dump in some mini marshmallows and then pour the rest of the chocolate marshmallow fudge on top of it.

Tap the pan fudge to help push it to all of the edges and grab a skewer or butter knife and swirl the marshmallows around. Tap the pan on the counter again to smooth out the top of the chocolate marshmallow fudge.

I made this recipe 3 times today. The fudge turned out perfectly every single time but I just didn't love how the marshmallows looked sitting at the bottom of the pan the first two times. I had it in my head that they would float to the middle but that didn't quite work out.

I sent the two pans of tester chocolate marshmallow fudge with my husband to share with his co-workers. It was a huge hit and he came home feeling pretty proud of me.

How to Make Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge

Do you want to make chocolate marshmallow fudge without sweetened condensed milk? You're in the right place friend!

To make the recipe for chocolate marshmallow fudge, start by adding these ingredients to a large saucepan.

  • butter
  • half and half
  • granulated sugar
  • brown sugar

While they're coming up to a boil, spray a bowl and scoop out the marshmallow cream into the greased bowl to easily add it to the hot sugar syrup when it's ready. The sugar mixture needs to boil for 5 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients.

I always add the marshmallow cream and THEN the chocolate chips just so the chocolate chips aren't sticking to the bottom of the pan while I'm trying to get the marshmallow cream out. Stir until the fudge is smooth and pour into a tin foil lined pan that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Add half of the fudge, dump in the mini marshmallows, and then add the remaining fudge on top. Tap the pan to get the fudge to all of the edges. Working quickly, grab a skewer and swirled the fudge and marshmallows together. Tap the pan on the counter several more times to smooth out the fudge and marshmallows.

Let it cool completely before slicing.

This fudge isn't like most chocolate fudge recipes. I used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. The semi-sweet chocolate chips can come off not quite sweet enough and milk chocolate chips can be too sweet. I find that equal parts of the semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips gives the fudge the perfect sweetness.
