Gravel Fudge Rocks

They may look like they’re straight from the gravel pile, but you won’t break your teeth on these chocolatey rocks! Bring a batch to your child’s next playdate and watch how quickly these truffle-like pebbles disappear.


  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Line a pan or shallow bowl with aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat chocolate condensed milk, butter, and vanilla over medium heat. Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in marshmallows until mostly melted.
  3. Spread mixture into prepared pan, cover, and chill until firm (about two hours).
  4. Place cocoa powder and powdered sugar in two shallow bowls.
  5. When fudge is ready, scoop the mixture out of the pan with a small spoon and shape into rock-sized pieces. Roll the "rocks" in the cocoa powder or the powdered sugar. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
