Fudge is one of those things that reminds me of summer. We would always go to Washington in the summers to visit my grandparents, and inevitably end up at Pike Place. There was a good fudge shop there and we would buy some before going home. One of the types of fudge my mom would often get was a mint chocolate fudge, so when I learned it could be quite easy to make yourself I set out to make something similar. I decided on mint cookie fudge.
Mint cookie is one of my favorite flavors. There’s a ben and jerry’s flavor of this and I should not be left with a pint. This fudge is a mix of white chocolate and chocolate marbled fudge, loaded with mint oreo cookies. The fudge is very chocolatey, smooth, and slightly minty with a subtle crunch from the oreos. My husband doesn’t love mint chocolate and still enjoyed this, so even if you aren’t a huge mint chocolate lover you might like it.
It’s also a pretty easy recipe to make, only requiring 4 ingredients!
- Chocolate – We’re using a mix of semi-sweet and white chocolate. I added the semi sweet to prevent this fudge from being overly sweet. I recommend using a high quality bar chocolate, like Lindt.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk – Instead of using cream or milk, sugar, butter, etc we are going to use this because it is easy and gives your fudge the perfect creamy sweet texture.
- Mint Oreos – I used regular, not oreo thins but those could probably be substituted (but most likely would be even less minty).
- 8 oz White Chocolate
- 4 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate
- 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 12-15 Mint Oreos
- Break up the oreos into chunks. I personally prefer larger pieces but if you don't a food processor could be used.
- Prepare an 8×8 pan with parchment, but also greasing (unless non stick). Set aside
- In a small bowl, measure out ⅓ of the can of sweetened condensed milk (about 130g) and in a medium bowl pour the rest of the condensed milk (about 260g).
- Break up the semi-sweet chocolate bar into the smaller bowl of condensed milk, and the white chocolate into the larger bowl.
- Either in a double boiler or the microwave, melt the chocolate into the condensed milk. If melting by microwave, stop and stir about every 30 seconds. You will want to do this so both bowls are ready at roughly the same time.
- Working quickly, pour the two bowls into the prepared pan. I found it easiest to pour all the white chocolate in and then pour the chocolate in patches around the white chocolate.
- Add the crushed oreos to the fudge.
- Using a knife, swirl the two flavors together, mixing the oreo into it as well creating a marbled fudge.
- Cover and let fudge sit for at least 12 hours before serving. Cut and store in an airtight container.
