Bavarian Mint Fudge Recipe

My sister-in-law sent this chocolate candy 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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:77 servings


  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon butter, divided
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1. Line an 11x7-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside.
  • 2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and remaining butter; stir until smooth. Stir in milk and extracts until well blended. Spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate until set.
  • 3. Using the foil, lift fudge out of the pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: about 2-1/2 pounds.

"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."

"This recipe was easy and finished texture is so creamy. I changed it up a bit by using Mint semi-sweet chocolate chips and Mint Hershey kisses for the milk chocolate. I kept the Peppermint and Vanilla flavorings the same. Delicious!!"

"I just made this for the third time today. But I had to modify it this time, as I could not get the chocolate chips to melt and I had had difficulty with this both other times as well. So I increased the butter to 2 T and added 6-8 T of milk, and transferred it to a double boiler and then it worked great. The consistency was so much better with the added liquid; the other two times it set up before I could even get it into the pan. But this time it actually needed the fridge time to set up. Very good. Even my husband who does care for mint enjoyed it."
