This fudge tastes as if my favorite chocolate covered pretzels have met their absolutely perfect match in a marshmallow filled fudge.

This pretzel fudge is so irresistible to me that I sent it off to the office with my husband almost as soon as I had it sliced.

I’m typically not a big fan of white chocolate, but this? I could snack on this salty-sweet treat all day long.

If you don’t happen to be a fan of white chocolate, this fudge works beautifully (and is equally tasty) when made with semi-sweet or dark chocolate.

As you can see from the photos, we happily enjoy this fudge with both kinds of chocolate.

PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk, not heavy cream, not half and half, nothing else will work. Trust me on this.

The sweetened condensed milk contains sugar which is vital to the taste, texture, and consistency of this recipe.

Even if you’ve had success subbing with something else in other recipes, I promise that you NEED to use sweetened condensed milk for this fudge recipe!

Can I Make Fudge On The Stove?

Yes, you can make this fudge on the stove. Keep the heat low and use a double boiler method. The microwave melting method makes this recipe ultra-quick and easy. However, if you don’t happen to be a fan of the microwave (or don’t have one), you can easily melt the chocolate, milk, and butter in a double boiler on the stovetop. It will just take a few minutes longer.

Can I Freeze Fudge?

Yes, you can freeze fudge. Wrap it tightly in parchment (cut or uncut) and then slide it into a zip-close freezer bag. Press the air out of the bag and freeze flat.

Can I Add Nuts To Fudge?

Yes, nuts can be added to almost any fudge recipe. No other adjustments will need to be made.

Can I Substitute The Sweetened Condensed Milk?

No, you can not make this without regular sweetened condensed milk. Nothing else will work. The sweetened condensed milk contains sugar which is vital to the taste, texture, and consistency of this recipe.

For more quick and easy fudge recipes, try this classic Chocolate Pecan Fudge, Buckeye Fudge, or White Chocolate Caramel Fudge.

Some of the new ones on my list to try are Salted Caramel Mocha Fudge, Easy Gingerbread Fudge, and Hot Chocolate Fudge. I don’t think I could ever have too many great fudge recipes for the holidays.

Kitchen Tip: I use these bowls and this pan to make this recipe.

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Fudge

  1. Combine the chocolate chips, the milk, and the butter in a medium size glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 90 seconds. Stir to combine and heat another 15 seconds. Stir and heat an additional 15 seconds, only if needed. There will still be a few pieces of unmelted chocolate in the bowl.
  2. Stir until mostly smooth with just a few flecks of unmelted chocolate. Add the extract, pretzels, and marshmallows to the bowl. Stir to combine. Scoop into a parchment lined loaf pan. Spread with a spatula. Chill until ready to serve.
  3. Slice into 1-inch squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    I’m not a fan of white chocolate but when I read that you could use semi-sweet or dark chocolate I was sold!

    I made this fudge the day you posted it, just in time for Halloween. It was so good, and really easy. I think next time I will break up the pretzels a bit before I add them, and I think I will add just a few more pretzels. But it was really good, thank you!

    • Terry says

      These were easy to make and amazing flavor. I did fi nd them to be a bit sticky even with parchment paper, will probably use buttered foil next time. Also, some marshmallows melted, so well add a cooldown period. Still a winner.5 stars
