Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows plus a few extra for the top
  • 1 cup salted peanuts plus a few extra for the top

Instructions
 

  • Line a 9x13 dish with foil. Spray with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium saucepan combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Over medium heat melt the chip mixture stirring constantly until the chips are melted.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the peanuts and vanilla.
  • Place the marshmallows in a large bowl.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the marshmallows and mix well. If you don’t want some of the marshmallows to melt and swirl then wait just a few minutes to let the chocolate cool before pouring over the marshmallows.
  • Spread into the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle the top with additional peanuts and marshmallows.
  • Place in refrigerator to chill until firm, 2 to 3 hours or overnight.

Notes

TIP: You can skip the stovetop and melt the chocolate in a large, microwave-safe bowl as well if you’d like. 
TIP: If you don’t want some of the marshmallows to melt, then wait just a few minutes to let the chocolate cool before pouring it over the marshmallows.
TIP: You could use an 8×8 square baking pan as well for thicker fudge.
