Got three minutes and 4 ingredients?  Then you can make this easy homemade rocky road fudge.  My daughter absolutely loves to bake, but with the temperatures up into the 90s here in Florida, I asked her to refrain from using the oven for too long.  So, she decided to make fudge.  She looked in the pantry and found some peanuts and marshmallows so it was Rocky Road Fudge for the win.

How to make Rocky Road Fudge

What you need to make 3 minute rocky road fudge is; peanuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sweetened condensed milk.  Easy enough right?  I thought so!

To make your 3 minute rocky road fudge you combine the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk into a microwave safe bowl and toss it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. When it done, you stir it so that it’s mixed well and then pour in the chopped peanuts and marshmallows. Now you will pour that into a pan and let it cool before letting everyone eat it.

Now, you could substitute the marshmallows and peanuts with whatever mix-in you would like.
