Next, let the mixture sit in the fridge for about 6 to 8 hours or overnight. Last but not least, add the almonds and marshmallows then stir it all together.

Ingredients needed:

12 oz semi chocolate chips

1 cup of Kelapo Ghee

4 cups of sugar

1 ½ cups of evaporated milk

20 large marshmallows

2 cups of walnuts (chopped)

1 teaspoon of vanilla

16 oz miniature marshmallows

Kelapo Coconut Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray

First, grab a baking sheet and spread about 2/3 of the mini marshmallows on it then place in the freezer to freeze. While those are freezing up, get a heavy pot and add the milk, sugar and all the large marshmallows. Stir everything together over high heat until it begins to boil. Once boiling, stir occasionally for 6 minutes and then remove from heat. In the same pot, add the chocolate chips and Kelapo Ghee. Stir until the chocolate has melted and created a thick consistency. Now, add the nuts and let the chocolate fudge sit for about 10 minutes or so until it thickens a bit more. Last, add the vanilla and the frozen mini marshmallows and stir together until everything is evenly combined. Grease a 9×13 pan with the Kelapo Coconut Oil Spray and spread the fudge. Pop the pan in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour and then enjoy!
