How to make Mint Chocolate Fudge

We’re going to make this Mint Fudge recipe easy by making it in layers. Here’s what you need to do:
  1. Melt together some of the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat on the stovetop. Transfer to a lined 8×8 baking dish and chill in fridge for 10 minutes.
  2. Melt together white chocolate chips and remaining milk before adding mint extract and food coloring. Pour over chocolate layer and let chill.
  3. Take remaining chocolate chips and shortening and melt together in the microwave. Spread over mint layer and let set in the fridge before cutting into squares.

Chocolate Chips with sweetened condensed milk in a pan

The first layer is the bottom chocolate layer. To prep that, add some of your chocolate chips and some of your condensed milk to a pot and set over low heat. Stir occasionally to help melt together evenly before transferring to a lined and cooking-sprayed 8×8 dish.

Set that in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes. Start on the middle peppermint layer in the meantime. Add the white chips and remaining milk to a pot and heat over a low flame.

When that’s all mixed up, take the mint mixture and spread it in an even layer over the chocolate one. Set in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.

The last layer we’ll prep in the microwave. Add the remaining chips and shortening to a bowl and microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring inbetween. Repeat until completely melted before spreading over the mint layer from before.

Pop the whole thing into the fridge to chill until fully set. After it’s set, cut into squares and enjoy!
