This mint chocolate chip fudge is rich with an out of this world taste. It’s the stuff that Christmas dreams are made of!
I love anything mint flavored. And combine it with chocolate? It’s a match made in heaven!
Fudge is one of those things that is either super easy to make or a “pull out your hair” experiment from a failed attempt at cooking it long enough.
I’ve made fudge both was, and believe me, easy is my favorite.
If you are looking for a pretty fool proof fudge, choose one that has either marshmallow fluff or sweetened condensed milk in the list of ingredients.
What could be easier? There is no candy thermometer to mess with, no standing over the stove stirring to make sure it doesn’t stick.
Melt some chocolate, decide on a flavor, (mint for me please) press the mixture into a pan.
And voila! A few hours later you are in your jammies eating your fudge!
It’s time to make the mint chocolate chip fudge!
This fudge is so easy and it only has a few ingredients: white chocolate morsels, miniature semi sweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and mint extract.
I used green gel food coloring to get the color I wanted.
Start by preparing your pan. I use either parchment paper or aluminum foil, larger than the base of my pan, and line the pan with it, leaving enough paper left to form some handles.
This makes the fudge very easy to remove after it has set.
Place your white chocolate morsels in a microwave safe bowl with the unsalted butter and heat for about 2 minutes. The mixture will be lumpy at this stage.
Stir in the nonfat sweetened condensed milk and the mint extract. Be sure to get a MINT extract, not peppermint.
It has more of a creme de menthe flavor than peppermint extract. Heat for another 2 minutes in the microwave.
Add some green gel food coloring and stir the mixture well to get the desired green color. I used two drops and it gave me the color I wanted.
Heat for another minute in the microwave until the mixture is very smooth and silky.
Allow the mint chocolate chip fudge to cool for a few minutes then fold in 1/2 cup of the miniature chocolate chips. Stir well and pour into the prepared pan.
Press the fudge into your prepared pan. Sprinkle over the remaining mini chocolate chips on top of the fudge and gently press them into the mixture.
Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set. Remove and cut the fudge into squares.
Creamy, silky, chocolaty fudge. This is the stuff Christmas dreams are made of – along with sugar plums – (whatever they are!)

Hi Carol, Just made your Crusty Herbed Italian Bread. The flavour is good, but it was very dry & dense. It is almost identical to my standby bread recipe, so I compared the ingredients an found an error/typo. Your recipe calls for 1 Cup of warm water. It should be 1 1/2 Cups of warm water. Hope this fix helps other bakers! Cheers, Stephanie

Hi Stephanie. Thanks for the email. I make the bread often and it is so light, so I went back to my original recipe card to see if I had made a mistake. I did. It is 1 1/4 cups of warm water (not one cup) that I made the typo on. Thanks for pointing out your experience. I have fixed my recipe card. Carol
