Quick Chocolate-Mint Fudge

Imagine making fudge that's ready to eat in just 40 minutes. Our Chillzanne® Platter makes it possible.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate squares for baking, divided
  • 1 package (6 ounces) white chocolate squares for baking
  • 1 container (16 ounces) prepared vanilla frosting, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint or mint extract
  • 3 drops green or red food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Using Crinkle Cutter, coarsely chop semi-sweet and white chocolate squares, keeping each separate. Reserve 1/2 cup of the semi-sweet chocolate for garnishing. Cut two 12-inch squares of Parchment Paper. Place one parchment square on chilled Chillzanne® Platter.

  2. Combine white chocolate and half of the frosting in (2-qt.) Saucepan. Stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Add peppermint extract and food coloring; mix well. Pour mixture onto Chillzanne® Platter; spread into an 8-inch square. Let stand 5 minutes until mixture begins to set.

  3. Meanwhile, in same saucepan, combine semi-sweet chocolate and remaining frosting. Stir over mint layer on Chillzanne® Platter; spread evenly to cover mint layer using Large Spreader. Let stand 10 minutes to set.

  4. Lay remaining parchment square over top of fudge. Smooth top by gently rolling Baker's Roller® over parchment. Lift up fudge with the aid of the parchment paper and turn over. Carefully peel parchment off mint layer of fudge.

  5. For garnish, place reserved 1/2 cup chopped chocolate and oil in Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 1-1 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle chocolate over fudge. Refrigerate until firm, 15-30 minutes. Place parchment with fudge on Cutting Board. Cut into 1-inch squares. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Cook's Tips:

It's really not necessary to wash the saucepan between heating the two chocolate mixtures. Always keep in mind that a single drop of water added to melted chocolate can cause the chocolate to clump and harden.

To drizzle melted chocolate for garnish, place a small plastic bag over rim of Measure-All® Cup, with one corner pointing down into the cup. Pour melted chocolate mixture into bag. Remove bag, twist top and secure with Twixit! Clip. Cut a very small piece off corner of bag to drizzle chocolate.

It's important to freeze the Chillzanne® Platter at least 4 hours before preparing this recipe.
