  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk (14-ounce, each)
  • 4 cups dark chocolate chips (about 24-ounce)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 jars marshmallow creme (7-ounce, each)


  • Butter a 8 x 8-inch pan and line with either parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy removal; set aside.
  • Combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips In a microwave-safe large bowl.
  • Heat mixture on high for 90 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir well. Only if needed, heat an additional 30 seconds, stirring until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla extract and then pour fudge into prepared pan, creating an even layer. Let set for about 5-10 minutes in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
  • Then, heat the marshmallow creme for about 20 seconds in the microwave and pour on top of the fudge. Smooth it over! Broil for 2 minutes; then freeze for 1-2 hours. Cut into squares and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Substitution: If you'd like to, you can use bittersweet chocolate chips instead. I prefer dark chocolate because it better balances the sweetness of  the condensed milk and marshmallow creme.  
  • Store in a clean airtight container, preferably in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days (on account of the marshmallow creme).
