I have been making this fudge for years. It is a wonderful recipe and a huge hit with my family. It tastes like Andes candy but better.
Oh so fudgy! I loved the texture of this fudge as it was much softer than other fudges that I make. My mint layer didn't seem to get as firm as the chocolate so it oozed out the edges a bit - but was so very good. Can't beat chocolate and mint together - was a great addition to my Xmas cookies!
Dd and I made this after lunch! It is delicious!! I actually used cut up Dove dark chocolates as I had bought a bunch on sale after Halloween. It came out beautiful, too! I did each layer in the microwave on 70% power for 1 minute, stir, then 20-30 seconds, stirring each time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
