Mint Chocolate Fudge Recipe
I use a regular 9×9″ pan with parchment paper to line it for this recipe. That makes cleanup super easy and keeps it easy to slice into portions. Using the parchment keeps the pan clean, and makes cleanup easy. Fewer dishes for me is always good in my book!
Let’s Get This Mint Chocolate Fudge Started
Heat for 25 seconds, stir well and reheat for another 25 seconds as needed until you get a smooth consistent texture.
In a second microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate chips with 3 Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk and repeat the same heating procedure as for the dark chocolate chips.
Stir the white chocolate mixture until completely smooth, then add the mint extract and green food dye as desired.
Drop tablespoon-sized spoonfuls of each chocolate mixture into the loaf pan, trying to place mint fudge alongside chocolate fudge.
Once all fudge has been added to the loaf pan, smooth with an offset spatula. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or overnight) to set.
When ready, remove the pan from fridge and remove the fudge from the pan, then the parchment paper.
Cut into inch squares for bite-sized servings. The great thing is you can change the flavor and color to match any theme you want now that you know how to make this awesome easy mint chocolate fudge.
