I think I got this from a Hershey's cookbook but it has been so many years ago I don't really remember. Very popular at Christmas. It is a rather 'pretty' fudge because of the layers.

Delicious! Rich chocolate on the bottom & nice mint on the top. The top layer was softer & somewhat runny, though; I'll try it again without the tbsp of water. Definitely worth making (& eating).
