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."

directions

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