Mint Chocolate Fudge

Have you ever notice there are so many great things to pair with chocolate? Peanut butter. Caramel. Vanilla. And, of course, MINT. This mint chocolate fudge is especially great for Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day because of the great green color. But of course it can be enjoyed all year round. The mild mint flavor pairs perfectly with rich milk chocolate for a delicious treat that is absolutely irresistible.

Substitutions or Additions for this Recipe

  • If you can’t find the Andes mint chips or chocolate mint chocolate chips, you can just use regular chocolate chips and add a little extra creme de menthe. For the white chocolate, you can use white chocolate bars or even baking chocolate, just try to avoid using chocolate bark. It is too waxy and will mess with the consistency.
  • This fudge is a slightly on the soft side so if you want it to be a little firmer, boil the milk and sugar for a minute longer. Everyone likes their fudge a little different so experiment to your liking.
  • To make a gluten free recipe, just be careful about your chocolate.  The really large Hershey bars have gluten in them (why? I have NO idea). The smaller ones are fine though and most other chocolate won’t have gluten so just be sure to check those labels just to be sure!

  • 9×13 inch pan



  • In a large mixing bowl, combine milk chocolate bar pieces,Ande’s Mint Chips, 4 Tbsp. butter, and half of the marshmallow whip. Set aside.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, combine white chocolate bar pieces, white chocolate chips, 4 Tbsp. butter and remaining marshmallow whip. Set aside.
  • Note: If you are wanting to make the swirls green (as pictured), add some green GEL food coloring (NOT water-based) to the white chocolate bowl.
  • In a LARGE saucepan (it will boil up high), combine sugar, evaporated milk and creme de menthe. Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat. Stir CONSTANTLY for 4 MINUTES.
  • Pour about a cup of cooked mixture into each bowl of chocolate at a time, stirring as constantly as you can for each bowl (you might want a helper for this part). Try to divide the cooked mixture between the two bowls as evenly as you can.
  • Stir each bowl until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour about ⅓ of each type of fudge at a time into a greased 9×13 glass baking dish.
  • Using a knife, swirl the two types of fudge together to make a pretty, swirled design.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate until hardened (several hours or overnight).
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

  1. 5 stars
    Just over the top good. What an unexpected surprise. Directions clear and easy. Method straight forward. Easy execution. Tastes just incredible. This is now on my holiday go to list. Thanks!

    1. Yes, peppermint is different from the creme de menthe.. the mint used for this recipe is more of a spearmint flavor. Hope this helps!

    2. Would white chocolate discs work or is that too much like bark? I can only find cookies and cream white chocolate bars, but am very interested in making this!

  2. I am confused about the milk do you add half the milk in the first step or the whole can? Do you need another can for step 4. I want to try for the holidays looks so good. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

  3. YES PLS. This sounds delicious! I’m from the UK so I’ve never really seen Marshmallow Fluff used in a fudge recipe, but it seems like a great idea!
