|Melt in your mouth AND your soul! Fudge lovers rejoice!|
|Did I mention this was really easy to make? The thumb pain is causing memory loss.|
- 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- 12 oz white chocolate chips
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk divided in half (I poured half the can into a small liquid measuring cup and left the other half in the can)
- 1-1 1/2 tsp of mint extract depending on how minty you like things
- A few drops of green food coloring
Now melt the semisweet chocolate chips on medium heat while stirring frequently to keep from burning. Take the other half of the divided milk and pour a little bit in and stir like crazy. Once the chips are melty again, pour in the rest of the divided milk and stir.
Here's where you can get fancy. You can dollop a spoonful of the now mint chocolate into the 8x8 pan and then a spoonful of the semisweet chocolate into the pan and repeat quickly a kajillion times before swirling with a knife. OR...
|You can just pour the semisweet chocolate in and smooth it out...|
|Then pour the mint chocolate on top...|
|And just smooth it out. Optional: top with chopped Andes mints, chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc. before it fully sets.|
Anyhow, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. If you're traveling, at least El Niño is keeping things unseasonably hot and snow-free around most of the country, so that's nice. If your family is visiting you, I hope you've stocked up on a higher than reasonable about of meat and booze. Regardless of your plans, I hope Santa (or your very patient significant other) brings you everything you've wished for, like world peace or a Ferrari. If not, at least you have my gift of fudge. 'Til next time, my fellow eaters!
|All I want for Christmas is fuuudddggee! Whew, it was really going to drive me crazy if I couldn't come up with a Christmas song to riff off of.|
