My sister-in-law sent this mint chocolate fudge to us one Christmas, and it's been a traditional holiday treat in our home ever since. With just six ingredients, it couldn't be any easier to make. —Sue Tucker, Edgemoor, South Carolina
Line an 11x7-in. baking pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, milk and remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Microwave on high 1 minute; stir. Microwave on high, stirring every 30 seconds until chips are just melted, 1-2 minutes longer. Stir in extracts (fudge mixture will not be glossy). Spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate until set.
Using the foil, lift fudge out of the pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator.
Mint Chocolate Fudge Tips
Can you use evaporated milk instead of condensed milk?
No, we don't recommend using evaporated milk for this recipe—your fudge won't turn out without condensed milk. If you're looking for ways to make this fudge your own, try swapping the peppermint extract for a different flavor.
