This was so good. I'm a huge mint and chocolate fan. I did it a little different though. I used mini muffin cups and my pastry bag to make little individual layered candies. I also used white chocolate chips instead of the confectioner's coating. And I melted all of this in the microwave instead of on the stove. Turned out great and I'll definitely be making again.

The main problem with this recipe was with the layering. The chocolate layers should be cooked seperately because by the time you get to the second chocolate layer the mixture you set aside at room temerature has set up and is not even spreadable. Read More

Great stuff! Reminds me of the Mint Meltaways from Fannie May. I didn't divide the chocolate into 2 layers though... it would have been impossible to spread after it cooled. Just used one thick chocolate layer and spread the mint layer on top. Read More

WOW! This is awesome! I did just two layers made it in about twenty minutes on my lunch break. I didn't have green food coloring so crushed 4 candy canes and added that to the white part. Everyone says it tastes like it came right out of a candy store. Read More

This is a very good recipe. The store was out of confectioner's coating and so I used white chocolate. I melted the white chocolate over low heat with a T. of vegetable oil and then added the 1 T. peppermint extract. I was afraid the mint would be too strong (because it smelled strong) but it wasn't. I also took people's advice and made two separate batches of the chocolate layer so it wouldn't harden. I layered it choc. mint choc. The white chocolate actually turned out although it was a little bit harder than the chocolate layers. But it was a hit with my family. Thanks! Read More

delicious... we used icing sugar though cuz we couldn't find the confectioner's coating but it still tasted great! We doubled the amount of mint used and it realli brought out the minty taste. A tip: smoothing out the melted choco chips with a wooden spoon will actually make the surface rougher its better if the chocolate chips are melted more into a liquidy substance and let it fill the pan by itself. Family members and friends alike all enjoyed it! The absolute best recipe that I ever used! X) Read More

very! very! good!You can keep the chocolate warm by warming up a bigger pot with water and put your chocolate pot inside the bigger pot when you are not using your chocolate and it will keep the chocolate from firming up.You can also use a candy pot which is a double pot for melting chocolate.

I made a glaring error when I made this fudge: I used confectioner's sugar instead of confectioner's coating. Oops! However I'm happy I made that mistake because the mint layer turned out gooey and soft like a truffle filling. I think I prefer it that way! I love mint so I'll definitely make this again. I might try the confectioner's coating this time though... Read More

Really good fudge tastes just like andes mints which I love. I took the suggestion and only made 2 layers. Next time for presentation sake I'll make the 2 chocolate layers separately and do all 3 layers. Read More
