4-Ingredient Hot Chocolate Fudge

Hot Chocolate Fudge Horizontal 3
Fudge is one of those simple pleasures that we can’t seem to get enough of, so it’s no wonder we’ve tried out as many different varieties as we have. While we’ll also love the good ol’ classic version, without all the bells and whistles of some of the fancier versions, holiday season calls for a slightly dressed up version, but the beauty of this recipe is that it’s still a breeze to throw together and only has four ingredients….

We give you: hot chocolate fudge. This stuff is so tasty, and it’s got the rich creaminess that we love about the classic beverage – along with the marshmallows! If you can use a microwave, you can make this fudge. Prep time is under 10 minutes, so then all you have to do is wait until the fudge sets and you’re in business! If you want a slight departure from the norm that’s as simple to make as it is delicious, this is the recipe for you!

  1. Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with aluminum foil and grease generously with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine dark chocolate chips with 4/5 can sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Combine white chocolate chips with remaining sweetened condensed milk (roughly 1/4 cup) in a large, microwaveable bowl and set aside.
  4. Working in 30-second increments and stirring in between, microwave dark chocolate until fully melted and smooth.
  5. Pour chocolate into lined baking dish, then smooth into an even layer and set aside.
  6. Following the same steps as above, microwave white chocolate until melted and smooth, then pour over dark chocolate and spread into an even layer.
  7. Sprinkle mini marshmallows over the white chocolate layer and use your hand to gently press them into the chocolate so they adhere.
  8. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until fudge is set, then remove fudge from pan (using the aluminum foil to lift it up, then peeling the foil off), slice into squares and enjoy.
