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!
We are not the best fudge makers in the world and I'm sure this is meant to turn out better looking but, hey, it's chocolate and condensed milk and it tastes great! We (I say 'we' but my daughter made this really) divided the condensed milk into one third for the white chocolate and two thirds for the semi-sweet and put on a really low heat. The white chocolate batch seemed to work but we struggled with the semi-sweet. I wonder if melting the chocolate in the microwave first and then adding to warmed condensed milk would make it easier. Also I would do the chocolate in two batches in future since, as you can see from the photo, we couldn't get the second half to melt again - resulting in a rather rustic top layer! ;)
You can replace the peppermint with many other extracts including raspberry, strawberry, cherry, amaretto, almond, etc. The LorAnn Oils that are used for hard candy & rock candy provide endless possibilities with this recipe!
Awesome!! I got this same recipe from TOH and made it the day before Thanksgiving. Everyone loved. It makes a beautiful presentation. And it is very easy to make. You can whip up a batch in no time at all. Excellent!.
This is a great recipe. I've also substitued raspberry extract for the peppermint.
