Deep Chocolate Fudge

I call this my “deep chocolate fudge” not because it uses dark chocolate (in fact it uses semi-sweet chocolate), but because the flavor is so “deep” and rich. It may sound like a typical “never fail fudge” recipe, but it’s really so much more than that. It is quick, easy, versatile and oh so delicious.

I’ve made this in a variety of ways (my favorite just the “traditional approach”) and it’s amazing any way you choose. Make it the tradition way (recipe follows) or add 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon for a spicy Mexican flavored approach, or sprinkle on a dusting of French sea salt at the end for a more unique French style. Stir in toasted walnuts, pecans or almonds, or even swirl in a homemade caramel – heavenly!

I’ve posted recipes for fudge before…
Nigella Lawson’s Vanilla Fudge ( which is AMAZING and my recipes for both chocolate fudge (using powdered sugar – sweet to the tooth and perfect for sharing) and peanut butter fudge (, but this one is different. It uses “Marshmallow Fluff”, which really reminds me of my childhood. Standing over the hot stove, adding the sticky marshmallow cream – the stuff of memories…

This recipe is based off of my Grandma Barbra’s “secret” chocolate fudge recipe. Only her and I know where the recipe originally developed… It’s a fun (and delicious) memory from my childhood.

Deep Chocolate Fudge

2 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 can (5 oz.) evaporated milk
1 jar of “Marshmallow Fluff” (regular size)
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 package (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Start by buttering either an 8×8-inch pan or a 9×9-inch pan – round or square will work fine.

Combine the white granulated sugar, unsalted butter, evaporated milk, “Marshmallow Fluff” and fine sea salt in a heavy bottomed medium sized pot over medium heat and stir together until melted and mixed.

Bring melted mixture to a boil, and stir continuously for 5 minutes.

Immediately remove from heat, and add pure vanilla extract and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Beat well until combined. (This is also the step where you would add desired mix-ins – cinnamon, white chocolate chips, nuts, etc.)

Pour mixture into prepared buttered pan and smooth top.

Allow to cool before cutting.
