Making fudge at home doesn’t have to be difficult. With just a few ingredients, you are only steps away from a decadent dessert.

Growing up we didn’t call this Rocky Road. Any dessert that had chocolate, nuts and marshmallow was called Heavenly Hash.

Am I the only one that remember Heavenly Hash ice cream? I’m not THAT old, so surely someone else out there might recall this chunky ice cream.

At birthday parties, we always had several ice cream flavors to choose from. Neapolitan and Heavenly Hash were almost always present. The third flavor was usually the wild card… ranging from Chocolate Mint to Caramel Fudge swirl or Peanut Butter ice cream, depending on the desires of the birthday child.

To me it didn’t matter, I always wanted the Heavenly Hash.

Then one day, everything changed. Heavenly Hash became Rocky Road. Still tasted great, so I’m not complaining. I think the name ‘hash’ just brought on too many other connotations, maybe?

Last year I made some Heavenly Hash brownies. OMG you guys, the comments on my facebook page were crazy! I guess 'hash' and 'brownies' was a total name fail. I should have called them Rocky Road brownies.

Anyways, on to this fudge. It is super easy, no stovetop needed (I used the microwave for the melting)!

Today’s recipe was the very first fudge I ever made as an adult. Why it’s taken me so long to share it here with all you fanatics, is beyond me. But don’t worry, the wait is over! You are only 5 ingredients away from having some of this chilling in your fridge!

And my son has declared this recipe his favorite fudge I’ve ever made. He loves all fudge too, so this is a big win in my book. Especially since it’s probably one of the easiest fudge recipes you’ll ever make! ENJOY!
