There’s something about limited edition desserts that make me go crazy. Like lose-my-mind, I-MUST-HAVE-IT crazy. I remember one time as a newly married woman that I stopped by a fast food drive through to pick up a certain mint milkshake for my husband. I was so excited to surprise him! But the surprise was on me because it was March 18th.

I went home with a Diet Coke, a cheeseburger, and a broken heart. I walked through the door and tossed it at my husband with a defeated look on my face. Surprise! Here is something nice that I wanted to do for you, but I failed. If hashtags existed back then I would’ve had #FAIL written all over my forehead. Thankfully after a few (14ish) years later I have some killer recipes under my belt and I can whip up something minty and more satisfying than any drive through.

This classic Mint Iced Chocolate Fudge comes together easily and without a fuss. Your family and friends will be asking for the recipe!

Ingredients:

1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup milk
1 and 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup white chocolate chips
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Mint Extract
1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Green Food Color

Directions:

  1. Line 8-inch square pan with foil, allowing foil to extend over sides of pan. Spray with no stick cooking spray. Mix sugar and cocoa powder in large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place butter and 1/4 cup milk in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute; stir until butter is melted. Stir in vanilla. Add to sugar mixture; mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
  3. For the mint layer, place white chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons milk in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM 1 minute; stir. Microwave additional 15 to 30 seconds, stirring after 15 seconds. Stir in mint extract and green food color. Spread over cooled chocolate layer.
  4. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift out of pan onto cutting board. Cut into 16 (2-inch) squares. Cut each square diagonally in half, making triangles.

Notes:

  • I added chocolate sprinkles before the mint layer set.
  • Alternatively from placing fudge into a square pan, I used a silicone mold with 1-inch circles. No need to grease or line the silicone mold (the candies popped right out).
  • Optional- Stir in 1 cup chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans or almonds, before pouring fudge into prepared pan.
