I've been looking for ideas to use all my mint, which will hopefully take off in the next few days after its root pruning session. I've already made chocolate mint ice cream, had lots of minty water, and made a ginger-mint simple syrup for our soda stream. I eyed up the sweetened condensed milk in the pantry and went for fudge!
Here's the incredibly simple recipe:
3 cups chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz, I used fat free)
~1/4-1/2 cup chopped mint
Melt the chocolate and condensed milk in a crock pot or on a double boiler. As soon as most of the chocolate has melted, cut the heat and keep stirring until smooth. Stir in the chopped mint, and pour into a foil-lined, greased 9x9 pan. Refrigerate ~1 hour. Flip the foil onto a cutting board to cut slices of fudge. Enjoy!
|Pick your mint|
|Pull it off the stems|
|Wash the mint and dry well before cutting.|
Chop the mint well.
|Melt your chocolate chips in the crock pot.|
If you prefer, use the microwave.
|Add sweetened condensed milk to the chocolate chips,|
and line your baking dish with foil. Grease the
baking dish! Add the mint just before filling.
|The final product. Pour the fudge mixture into the|
baking dish and refrigerate. Adjust the time
in the fridge to control how solid your fudge is.
