Rocky Road Fudge

This is a quick, yummy recipe for fudge.
I made it after coming home from a long day at work
and it was really worth it!!

Rocky Road Fudge
by William Sonoma

1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups mini marshmellows
2 cups chopped nuts ( your choice)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or chocolate extract
1/2 cup of chopped maraschino cherries (not in original recipe just sounded good to me)

Set aside a 1/2 cup of the marshmallows and 1/2 cup of the nuts for the topping.

Line a baking pan with aluminum foil making sure to press the foil into the corners. Using a napkin or papertowel to rub vegetable oil over the foil.

Begin by melting the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a microwaveable bowl.
Melt 30 seconds at a time (two or three times) stirring each time.
You don't want to over heat the chocolate.

Next, using a spatula, stir in the vanilla extract, marshmallows, nuts and cherries.
Make sure all the ingredients get mixed into the chocolate.

Scrape the chocolate mixture into the baking pan, spread it out evenly and smooth the top.

Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows and nuts on top and gently press them into the surface of the fudge. Cover the pan and chill in the refigerator for about 30 minutes.

Lift the fudge out of the pan peeling back the foil. Then cut the fudge into small pieces and serve.

Check out all the oowey, goowey, goodness!
