How to make Extra Dark Chocolate Fudge

I usually make this fudge with dark chocolate, so if that’s all you can find, go for it!  It’s still really yummy!  

This fudge is expected to be available every Christmas by family members. So I make it happen!

Place marshmallow creme, sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a heavy saucepan, bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes.

  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 7 oz Marshmallow Creme
  • 5 oz Evaporated Milk 1 small can
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 12 ounces Extra Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Line an 8″ or 9″ square pan with foil, butter the foil and set aside.
  • Combine, marshmallow creme, sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a heavy saucepan.
  • Cook over medium heat to a full boil, stirring constantly.
  • Once to a boil, cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.
  • Stir until chips are melted thoroughly and pour into the prepared pan.
  • Let set until firm.


2 cups of miniature marshmallows can be substituted for the marshmallow creme. Stir until all marshmallows are completely melted. But I cannot guarantee the outcome. I only use the marshmallow creme.
If you must, you can add your favorite nuts. But we love it just like it is!

        Anyone tried this or any fudge using the miniature marshmallows instead of marshmallow creme? Wondering if the consistency turns out ok.

      I followed the instructions but the fudge didn’t set. How can I fix it?

        Hey Maya, so sorry to hear that. The only thing I can think of that would not cause it to set up is not cooking it long enough at a high enough temperature.

        I’m wondering what state you live in….because I made this fudge…and it set up So close to “set up” ….but still kinda smushy. I live near the coast in Texas…and think altitude affected my outcome.3 stars

    My wife and I make fudge each holiday season and ship it to friends throughout the U.S. and world. We were looking for a extra dark chocolate fudge recipe and this one looks good. Doubling the recipe should not be a problem, right?5 stars

      Hi, Warren. I have never doubled this recipe so I can’t say if it will work or not. If you try it let please come back and let us know how it worked. Thanks so much for visiting!

    I found this recipe about a year ago when I was trolling specifically for an easy fudge recipe.
    This recipe is not only easy it has the magic ingredient for my husband — extra dark chocolate.
    Follow the directions — stirring constantly, including the 5 minute boil. No fail!
    Thanks so much for this amazing recipe.5 stars
