Halloween Gravel (Fudge Candy)

I got this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens website. I placed the fudge "rock" candies in a crystal centerpiece, and then scattered a few pastic spiders for a quick Halloween decoration. I didn't eat the candy myself, but my kids said they were pretty good (and they were gone in a matter of hours, so they must have been pretty good). Even if you don't eat them, these are a handy treat to use for enhancing your Halloween decorating. Cooking time includes minimum chilling time. The recipe make about 2 1/4 pounds of candy, or about 80 rock-shaped fudge candies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9x9-inch pan with foil; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, stir chips, canned milk, butter, vanilla and salt together over medium heat until melted.
  3. Remove pan from heat; stir in marshmallows just until blended. Spread mixture in foiled pan.
  4. With a thin metal spatula, swirl marshmallows through fudge until marshmallows are mostly melted. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until firm.
  5. After adequately chilled, scoop pieces of fudge with a small spoon and shape into small rocks. (The fudge will be sticky).
  6. Roll some of the fudge "rocks" in cocoa powder mixture and some in powdered sugar.
  7. Store rock candy in airtight container for up to 3 days.
  8. For a spooky graveyard scene, spread chocolate cookie crumbs on a platter. Arrange the rock candy on top, to resemble rocks in soil.
