Chocolate and mint layered fudge candy

Chocolate and mint layered fudge candy

Community Classics .
Edited on Dec 15, 2007

This was an 'accident' recipe. I was making another mint fudge but forgot the vanilla extract and only had half the peppermint extract that it called for. The result was much better than the original recipe. In addition, instead of doing three layers (chocolate/mint/chocolate) I just did the two. Tastes like a Mint Meltaway from a well-known chocolate company.


2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
6-ounces white chocolate squares (3 squares)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tablespoon peppermint extract
few drops green food coloring, optional


In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt semisweet chocolate with 1 cup sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat; spread the mixture into a foil-lined 8 or 9 inch square pan (grease the foil). Chill 10 minutes or until firm. In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt white chocolate with remaining milk. Remove from heat; stir in peppermint extract and food coloring. Spread on chilled chocolate layer. Chill 2 hours or until firm. Turn onto cutting board. Peel off foil and cut into squares. Store loosely covered at room temperature or in refrigerator. Make about 1 ¾ pounds.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
