Rocky Road Fudge is my favorite kind of fudge. My dad loves Bass Pro Shop, and I do, too.  Any time he would go, I'd go with him.  The main reason I loved going was to shoot guns at their target practice range and to get some fudge! He loved the range as well as getting fishing gear and hunting supplies, but I'm convinced fudge was his favorite reason for going. 
Well, now with all his heart problems we rarely do any of that.  Happily, I decided to try out recipes at home to get the fudge that tastes close to their recipe! 


  • 1 tbsp butter, plus more for buttering the pan
  • 1 cup pecans (I use pecans, because we are allergic to all other nuts- you can use almonds)
  • 12 oz (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Butter 8x11 pan
  • In a skillet toast your pecans (or almonds) for about 4 minutes
  • Chop nuts and set aside
  • In a large heatproof bowl, add butter, chocolate, 2 cups marshmallows, condensed milk, vanilla and salt
  • Place over simmering water (double broiler style- make sure bowl doesn't touch water... double broiler is where you have a pot of boiling water and you sit a heat proof bowl on top so the contents in the bowl slowly melt) 
  • Melt everything until smooth, stirring often
  • Remove bowl from heat and stir in the other 1 cup of marshmallows and pecans
  • Pour into pan
  • Let sit for about 3-4 hours or overnight
