Mint Chocolate Fudge Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
  • One 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp mint extract (½ tsp more if you like mint)
  • Green food coloring

Pro tip: add ½ teaspoon more mint extract if you like more mint flavor!

Using white “morsels,” which is actually a confectionery coating. If you’re using white confectionery coating chips (no cocoa butter listed in the ingredients, use 12 ounces. If using pure white chocolate (with cocoa butter listed in the ingredients), use 15 ounces.

Some recipes layer the chocolate and mint separately. I love the marbled look of this recipe and fun swirls of flavor.

Substitution ideas

  • You could swirl in a little marshmallow creme.
  • You could crumble Oreo on top.
  • You could sprinkle with Andes mints.
  • You could use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate for added depth of flavor.

How to Make Mint Chocolate Fudge

STEP ONE: Line an 8×8 pan with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

STEP TWO: In a medium pan place the white chocolate chips and melt over low heat until most of the chips are melted. Remove from heat and stir in HALF of the sweetened condensed milk and the teaspoon of mint.

Pro tip: when melting chocolate make sure your pans are completely clean and dry! You’ll also want to stir continually so nothing burns.

STEP THREE: Add green food coloring to the white chips and stir until well-mixed and all chips are melted.

STEP FOUR: In a separate pan place the milk chocolate chips and melt over low heat until most of the chips are melted. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining sweetened condensed milk and stir until the rest of the chips are melted. 

STEP FOUR: Using a large spoon drop spoonfuls of white chips varying with dropping spoonfuls of the milk chocolate chips randomly on the bottom of the prepared pan. When the bottom of the pan is filled just keep putting spoonfuls all around until all melted chip pans are empty. Gently tap the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles. 

STEP FIVE: Working quickly use a butter knife or wooden skewer and run the tip through the fudge making a swirling pattern.

STEP SIX: Once you are finished swirling you can also use your hand to gently pat on the top of the fudge to make the top even. Tap the pan on the counter again to remove air bubbles from the fudge.

STEP SEVEN: Chill for 3-4 hours or overnight.

STEP EIGHT: Lift the fudge out of the pan using the foil edges to lift it out. Then remove the foil from the fudge. Cut into serving pieces.

Pro tip: use an extra sharp knife, dipped in water between slices, to help create smooth, clean cuts.

How to Fix Grainy Fudge

If your fudge turned out grainy, it could be because you heated the chocolate up too fast.

You can add a dash of water and mix well to help bring it back to a smooth consistency.

How to Store Mint Chocolate Fudge

Moisture ruins the consistency of fudge, so you’ll want to keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

Pro tip: some fudges you can leave sitting out at room temp and they will do okay. NOT THIS ONE. It has to be kept refrigerated or the mint part goes soft!

We love making this to serve at Christmas parties with our family.

It also makes the perfect holiday gift to share with friends, neighbors, and teachers. You can put the fudge in between layers of wax paper and gift in a festive tin or cute food box tied with ribbon.

You can also freeze this fudge for up to two months when stored properly in the freezer. I would suggest wrapping it well and popping into freezer-safe bags to prevent it spoiling.
