Strawberry Marshmallow Fudge

Strawberry Marshmallow Fudge that’s so easy to make, you can do it the morning of Valentine’s Day, and still have a treat ready in time for dessert, with only 5 minutes of effort.

I am SO so so all about easy treats right now. With a life in and out of boxes, trying to whip up a pan au chocolat or chocolate pots de creme seems impossible, even for showing Eric how much I love him. I know he doesn’t want that much mess either.

(Also, I don’t know why I went French there, but I guess it’s because Love = French = Valentine’s Day. Stick with me.)

So when I saw the Rocky Road Fudge over on Food Fanatic, I just knew that I could make it my own, and make it OURS for Valentine’s Day. Especially with Campfire® mini fruit-flavored marshmallows, dried strawberries, and cocoa rice cereal studded throughout, silky Nutella finishing the whole thing off.

Oh, how I love these Campfire® mini fruit-flavored marshmallows. I can eat them by the handful as a snack when I’m craving something sweet. They’re fantastic here, in indulgent little bites of fudgy bliss.

This Strawberry Marshmallow Fudge is genius, you guys. You don’t need a candy thermometer. You don’t need to stand over your stove, stirring (and potentially burning your fingers) forever. All you need is a bowl, a microwave, and an 8×8 baking dish. That’s it.

You even get a glossy finish on the fudge thanks to the addition of Nutella. Really you can use any nut (or cookie!) butter you like. And you can swap in Campfire® white mini marshmallows if you want. Dried cherries or raisins and nuts sound pretty amazing to me too.

Whatever you do though, you have to make this fudge immediately. It’s the perfect homemade way to show your favorite guy or gal how much you love ’em. They don’t have to know it only took you five minutes and dirtying one bowl.

    Hi!
    Just wondering if you know of a substitution for the Nutella?  As this recipe looks delicious but there’s nut allergies in the household 
    Thanks

      Hi, Britt! I’ve never tried this, but here’s a recipe for a nut free Nutella substitute. Let me know how it goes!
