Reviews forBavarian Mint Fudge
"Super easy! Excellent. It's dangerous to be able to make fudge this yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"This is very good fudge I've made it and family liked it."
"I have made this fudge for many, many years and everyone wants the recipe. So creamy and wonderful, not to mention easy!"
"I have made this fudge 2 years in a row now and my kids, family and friends ask me to make it every Christmas."
"This is a fabulous recipe! I've done this with good chunk chocolate (instead of chips) and the results are also great. If, at mixing time, the chocolate seems to want to seize up, just use some muscle in the stirring, and it comes out smooth and silky. Beautiful texture when it melts in your mouth."
"Absolutely delicious! No problem with melting the chips if you melt for @ 1 min., stir and then melt for 10 seconds at a time until they are stirred smooth. Super creamy consistency and so very easy to make."
"The chips proved to be very hard to "melt until smooth" and it ended up pretty lumpy after multiple attempts at smoothing. Not quite what I remember bavarian mint fudge being, I think I'll have to stick with the kind you cook in a saucepan."
"it was good."
"My entire family raved about this and we'll be making it again before the Christmas season is over. Its absolutely delicious and the mint makes it extra special."
