Mint Chocolate is a flavour that, for some reason, rarely crosses my mind. But when it does, I’m reminded of just how incredible the combination really is! This stunning Mint Chocolate Fudge is not only pleasing to the eye, it’s incredibly yummy, requires no baking or thermometer to make and the fridge does all the hard work for you. Sound good? Great! Let’s get cracking then.
Here is what you will need to make approx 36 pieces.
For the Fudge Layers
- 130g Milk Chocolate, broken into pieces
- 130g Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces
- 397g Can of Condensed Milk
- 260g White Chocolate, broken into pieces
- 1 tsp Peppermint Extract
- Green Food Colouring Gel
For the Topping
- 175g Milk Chocolate, broken into pieces
- 1 tbsp (15g) Unsalted Butter
- 20 x 20cm (8 x 8″) Square Baking Tin or Silicone Pan
Mint Chocolate Fudge Recipe
First thing’s first. Line the base & sides of your tin with baking paper. If you are using a silicone pan, you don’t need to.
Then in a small non stick saucepan over a low heat, gently melt together the milk chocolate, dark chocolate and half the can of condensed milk. Stir often until it’s completely melted, shiny & smooth.
Immediately pour into the base of your prepared tin and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Place into the fridge whilst we make the mint layer.
Next, in another small non stick saucepan over a low heat, gently melt together the white chocolate & the remaining half of condensed milk. Again, stir often until it’s completely melted, shiny & smooth.
Then remove from the heat and stir through the peppermint extract and some green food colouring gel. (Don’t use liquid food colouring or your fudge may not set.)
Give it a good mix then pour it over the chocolate layer and smooth out using the back of a spoon. Place back into the fridge whilst we make the topping.
Then place the milk chocolate and the butter into a large glass bowl. Either melt in the microwave in 20 second intervals (stirring in-between each one) or place over a pan of barely simmering water and stir until melted.
Next pour the chocolate over the mint layer and smooth out using the back of a spoon. Place back into the fridge to set for at least 2 – 3 hours, or until firm enough to cut.
When the fudge has completely set, remove from the tin and cut into 36 pieces. (a 6 x 6 grid.) Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I know mine won’t last that long though!
And there you have it. No complicated methods, no standing over a pan of boiling lava with a thermometer for hours, just melt it, mix it, layer it and let the fridge take care of the rest! This Mint Chocolate Fudge really is simple to make and would make a lovely gift for any special occasion. Christmas, Birthdays, Valentines Day… let’s be honest though, you don’t really need an excuse to make this though do you? I know I didn’t!
