Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips (Guittard or Ghirardelli)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk, separated into 2 equal parts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (Guittard or Ghirardelli, cheaper white chocolate has the tendency to seize)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon peppermint extract, depending on preference
  • 4 drops green food coloring optional

Instructions

  1. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Combine the milk chocolate chips with 1/2 of the can of sweetened condensed milk in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 15 seconds, stir for 30 seconds, and then microwave for another 15-20 seconds. Stir for about 30-45 seconds or until the chocolate is melted. If it isn't melted all of the way, return it to the microwave for 20 more seconds.* Stir in the vanilla extract.

  3. In another microwaveable bowl, combine white chocolate chips with the remaining sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, and green food coloring. Microwave for 15-20 seconds, stir for 30 seconds, and then microwave for another 15-20 seconds. Stir for about 30-45 seconds or until the chocolate is melted. If it isn't melted all of the way, return it to the microwave for 20 more seconds.

  4. Into the prepared pan, alternate spoonfuls of the mint white chocolate with the milk chocolate until both bowls of melted chocolates are all in the pan.

  5. Gently run a butterknife through the fudge to create swirls. I run the knife up 4-5 times one side and then 4-5 times on the other side. (See video)

  6. Place the fudge in the fridge and let harden, typically about 4 hours. Pull out the fudge using the parchment overhang.

  7. Cut into pieces and enjoy!

  8. Store in an airtight container -- best enjoyed within 2-3 days.

Recipe Notes

Be careful not to burn your chocolate in the microwave. Chocolate typically burns in the microwave when you use low-quality chocolate (see post above), cook it for too long, or don’t spend long enough stirring it in between putting it in the microwave. Remember, your chocolate is still melting even after you've pulled it out of the microwave **COOK TIME refers to chilling time
