I have tried other recipes that take much longer to prepare and trust me, it is so unnecessary. You really don’t need more than 15 minutes for perfect fudge. Ingredients include semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, evaporated milk. It can be made with or without nuts.

This mint chocolate fudge is a great Christmas fudge recipe, or St. Patrick’s day treat because of the great green color. But of course it can be enjoyed all year round. The mixture of mild mint flavor with rich milk chocolate is a delicious treat that is absolutely irresistible.

Frequently asked questions about fudge

What is the best way to store fudge?

If fudge will be eaten within a week or two, store it at room temperature in an airtight container in a cool and dry place. Fudge has the creamiest texture at room temperature.

If you want the fudge to keep for 2-3 weeks, it is best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container with wax paper or parchment paper between the layers of fudge pieces.

Can I freeze fudge?

Yes, most fudge can be frozen. All of the fudge recipes here can be frozen with the exception of our German Chocolate Fudge. Wrap the fudge tightly in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil before placing it in the freezer. You can also freeze it in a freezer-safe airtight container.

How do I thaw frozen fudge?

It’s best to thaw frozen fudge in the refrigerator. Keep it wrapped or in the airtight container it was frozen in, and keep it in the fridge until ready to eat.

What are the ingredients of fudge?

The base ingredients of most fudge recipes are sugar, butter, a form of chocolate or other flavor, sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk, and marshmallows or marshmallow cream (fluff).
