Chocolate Mint Fudge has become a standard in our house at Christmas time. As soon as the weather begins to cool, you can find myself or Big in the kitchen making a batch of this fudge.
We try to make candy and cookies to mail family and give to neighbors during the Christmas holiday season. I know many of you enjoy giving homemade gifts also.
A few years ago, while flipping through the pages of Taste Of Home magazine, I came across this recipe. I thought, “Hey, I love Andy’s Candy, I will give this recipe a try.”
I am so glad that I did.
There is a good mint to chocolate ratio. I was worried the mint would be overwhelming, but it is not. I also love the green and brown combination. You know what you are getting when you look at it.
This is an easy recipe to make. It does take a little time though. There are a few chilling periods and this is where the time factor comes in.
