Chocolate Mint Fudge

Found 16th Dec 2010
Going to be making this but following recipe below I have a little question. As I have only used condensed milk for caramel squares I know the caramel has to be boiling. Does the same apply here or is it really just a case of melting the chocolate with the condensed milk??

Mint Chocolate Fudge


350g plain chocolate
1 (397g) tin condensed sweetened milk, divided
1 dessertspoon vanilla extract
175g white chocolate
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
1 drop green food colouring (optional)


"This decadent layered fudge is perfect for those who love the 'After Eight' combination of chocolate and mint. Makes a perfect food gift!"

Ready in 45 min, Servings: 28


Line a 20 or 23cm (8 or 9 in) square tin with greaseproof paper.
In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt plain chocolate with 250ml condensed sweetened milk and vanilla. Spread half of the mixture into prepared tin; chill 10 minutes, or until firm. Reserve remaining chocolate mixture at room temperature.
In another heavy saucepan over low heat, melt white chocolate with remaining condensed sweetened milk (mixture will be thick.) Stir in peppermint extract and food colouring, if using. Spread this mixture on chilled plain chocolate layer; chill 10 minutes, or until firm.
Spread reserved plain chocolate mixture over the mint layer; chill 2 hours, or until firm. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.
im not too bad at cooking/baking...but fudge is my nemesis..its so hard to make
certainly following the directions there is no boiling involved
and if so its not really fudge its squashy flavoured chocolate, maybe the lack of butter lets it stay set.
sure would be tasty though!

edit: looks same as this

I might give this a try. Def not made as you would make fudge. I would say the condenced milk will give it the sweet fudge taste and the chocolate will allow it to solidify as it cools.
When I've used condensed milk + chocolate in a recipe in the past I've not boiled it - you should be fine.
Cool thanks everyone
did it work?...might have a go if it did
Gonna try it once I have done my dishes lol will let ya know
well, well , well how was the fudge???
Fab defo worth a try. Just pour once chocolate is melted and I let mine chill for 20 mins each layer xxx
Okies will report back how mine goes. I always want chocolate orange fudge or lemon

380g (13 oz) chocolate chips or chocolate drops
1 (397g) tin Nestlé Condensed Full Cream Sweetened Milk
60g (2 oz) chopped pecans
1 dessertspoon grated orange zest

"A simple fudge recipe combining chocolate chips, condensed milk, pecans and orange zest. Substitute almonds, or any kind of nut, if desired."

Ready in 2 hrs 20 min, Servings: 20


Line a 20x20cm (8x8 in) square pan with baking parchment.
