Double Chocolate Mint Fudge

I’ve already started getting excited for the upcoming Christmas holiday and in fact, I am listening to Christmas music right now as I type. Some of you may think it is a little early and that I am a little crazy but I disagree. It gets me in the mood to do all kinds of holiday cooking. So to those of you who made fun of me for listening to Christmas music a couple of weeks ago,  I’d like to think that without listening to Christmas music just a little early, I wouldn’t have thought to make this easy, delicious mint fudge and therefore wouldn’t be sharing it with you :)

With that said, turn up some Bing Crosby, start singing and try this fudge!


Double Chocolate Mint Fudge Recipe

Makes 24

  • 1 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips (or 8oz of chopped bittersweet squares)
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips

In a 2qt saucepan over medium heat, add the condensed milk, stirring constantly until it thins slightly (about 4-5 minutes).

    Deseree..I am a cookbook /recipe fanatic..I just love your recipes and the comments that goes with them.Having lived inItaly(back home now) for twelve years, I can only say you have captured the pasta and other Italian recipes just right.I convert all my friends into cooking the simple, fresh pasta sauces and dishes, rather than the heavily seasoned meat sauce usually served with spagetti, they think of as “real Italian”.Thank you! I’m off to try some of your other recipes.

    I’ve used the mint chocolate chips in place of using mint extract before. It’s so yummy! I also use 1 oz. unsweetened choc. and 2 cups semi-sweet for my chocolate. I usually add vanilla extract at the end.
