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

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.
