Layered Mint Fudge Recipe

"I make this festive fudge year-round, but especially at Christmastime," writes Denise Hanson of Anoka, Minnesota. "I've brought it to many different occasions and am asked for the recipe every time. I've also entered it in our local fair and won the blue ribbon!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:81 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 3 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1 to 2 drops green food coloring

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; grease the foil with butter and set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and 1 cup milk over low heat; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until smooth. Remove from the heat. Add vanilla; stir for 3-4 minutes or until creamy. Spread half of the mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until firm. Set remaining chocolate mixture aside.
  • 2. In a another heavy saucepan, melt vanilla chips and remaining milk over low heat; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until smooth (mixture will be thick). Remove from the heat. Add peppermint extract and food coloring; stir for 3-4 minutes or until creamy. Spread evenly over chocolate layer. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until firm.
  • 3. Heat reserved chocolate mixture over low heat until mixture achieves spreading consistency; spread over mint layer. Cover and refrigerate overnight or until firm.

"Best fudge ever. I make at least 2 batches every Christmas - one for our family and one batch for all our friends who ask "are you making that fudge this year " follow recipe as is. Butter hands to spread if need be"

"It was a pain to spread the layers in the pan. Everything KCDOLLAR wrote about it was true for me. It helped to let it cool a little before spreading--and then I resorted to my hands to get it spread. Looks and smell good. Just not sure it's worth the trouble."

"Am I the only one who thought it was a total pain in the butt to spread in the pan? The first chocolate layer kept slipping around on the buttered foil and wouldn't spread to the edges. And then the mint layer was so thick, I had to basically crumble it over the chocolate. I've made some pretty great real fudges before (the kind you have to boil), but this was just too much of a pain to do again."

"This is such an easy, delicious treat that I would definitely make again. I only used about a 1/3 of the Peppermint Extract that's recommended, and it was perfect. It honestly tasted like a soft Andes candy. Everyone at our New Year's party loved it! Can't wait to try it again!"

"I make this every Christmas. It really is very simple. I've never faltered with it. I usually double the recipe into a 10.5" X 14.5" pan. Works beautifully. Also, for the kids' batch, I reduce the peppermint extract 1/2tsp-1tsp. My final suggestion is to cut the fudge into 1" pieces- a little goes a long way. It is quite sweet."

"I've made this every year since my first isse in December 2007. Very refreshing. I use peppermint OIL instead of the extract -- only need 1.5 tsps because oil is much stronger than extract. Tastes just like a thin mint! In the past years I've given it as part of a Christmas goodie basket, along with Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites, Christmas Hard Candy, and Pecan Caramels (all in Dec. '07 issue). I can see why this recipe won a blue ribbon :)"

"This recipe was very easy to follow and easy to prepare. I did find that in order to melt the chocolate, it took a little higher heat on my stove and a little longer time. Reheating the first mixture for the top layer went fairly quickly as well.

I would make these repeatedly and have no qualms serving them to others as they are extremely tasty. Almost too good. :)"
