Ingredients
  • 2 packages (4 oz. each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. mint extract (original recipe calls for peppermint extract)
  • 1 package (3.9 oz) Chocolate flavor instant pudding
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup finely crushed peppermints
Instructions
  1. Line a 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Microwave 4 oz. chocolate, 6 tbsp. butter and water in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add mint extract and dry pudding mix; stir 2 minutes.
  2. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, stirring after each addition until well blended. Pour into prepared pan; press into even layer with back of spatula or spoon.
  3. Microwave remaining butter and chocolate in large microwaveable bowl 1 to 1.5 minutes or until butter is melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Pour over fudge layer in pan; spread to completely cover bottom layer. Top with remaining ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Use foil handles to remove fudge from pan before cutting to serve.
Notes
Store cut-up fudge between sheets of waxed paper in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

We’re going on 6 days in the refrigerator and I’m noticing that the crushed peppermints and marshmallows aren’t looking as fresh. Although they still taste great, they’re just not looking their best. I think about 5 max in the refrigerator is probably best if you want to LOOK and TASTE great!

Although Christmas has passed we still have some celebrating to do on New Years. Whip up a batch of this Mint Chocolate Pudding Fudge, set up a hot chocolate bar, and invite the neighbors over for some good, family-friendly fun!

How do you sweeten the season?
