Gravel - Fudge

I regret that I cannot give credit to the source of this photo and the accompanying recipe -- I forgot to cite the source in my recipe document. I think it might have been Better Homes & Garden from last fall's Halloween recipes, but don't quote me. What ever the source, it is much appreciated.


3 cups semisweet chocolate pieces
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
Dash salt
2 cups tiny marshmallows

Unsweetened cocoa powder mixed with an equal amount of powdered sugar
Powdered sugar


1. Line a 9x9x2-inch or an 8x8x2-inch baking pan with foil; set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, heat and stir chocolate pieces, condensed milk, butter, vanilla, and salt over medium heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in marshmallows just until combined. Spread mixture evenly in the prepared pan. Using a table knife or thin metal spatula, swirl marshmallows through fudge in pan until marshmallows are mostly melted. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until firm.

3. Using a small scoop, scoop fudge and shape into rocks (fudge will be sticky). Roll some in cocoa powder mixture and some in powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Makes about 80 pieces (2 1/4 lbs.).
