S'mores Fudge: Recipe

Because who doesn't love a less messy and absolutely delicious campfire treat?!
Last night I felt in the mood to make something sweet! One of my favorite things about summer are having bonfires in the backyard and what comes hand in hand with bonfires? S'mores! However, I'm not that huge of a s'mores fan just because I always feel absolutely ridiculous eating it with the marshmallow oozing everywhere and the crackers just crumbling all over me. So while I was on my hunt for healthy recipes I stumbled upon Nikki Dinki's food blog (who is my favorite chef on Next Food Network Star) and came across this recipe for s'mores fudge! And since we had pretty much all the ingredients I decided to give it a go :) So here it is if you guys are in the mood for s'mores:
14oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
12oz Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 bag of Mini Marshmallows
6-8 Graham Crackers
4-6 Graham Crackers Crumbled
Step 1- Line the bottom of a pan with your graham crackers, you will have to break some apart to make them fit better and cover the whole bottom.
Step 2- Put the condensed milk and chocolate chips into a sauce pan and mix over the stove on medium/high until boiling or completely melted. This will take a few minutes but make sure not to leave the sauce pan because you can easily burn the bottom.
Step 3- Once the chocolate/milk mixture is ready put half of the bag of marshmallows into the mixture. I changed temperature to low/medium and let this first half of marshmallows melt and mix into the mixture.
Step 4- Once that first half is melted in there turn of the stove and add the other half of the marshmallows and mix it all together.
Step 5- Pour the mixture into the pan and then cover the top with the graham cracker crumbles! Once the top is covered with the crumbles gently press it down making them stick on.
 Step 6- Cover it and let it sit in the fridge for about 2 hours to chill and harden!
Step 7- Take it out, cut a slice, and enjoy the treat :)
I hope you guys try this out and like it! Let me know what you all think if you do!
I'll be gone for the next three days on a trip to Gatlinburg but I'm so excited to share with you all the adventures I'll be having there when I get back!
Have a great week everyone!
