Even though the holidays are behind us, there are still holiday events to attend. I know many companies host their holiday events in January as well as many families.
Since the holiday season isn’t truly over, it’s always good to have a quick and delicious recipe on hand so you can whip something together to bring along to different events.
When we visit someone else’s home for a holiday event, we like to bring a special little treat along and I’m pretty sure I have found our new favorite, Mint Chocolate Pudding Fudge, a quick and easy recipe from Kraft.
If you are looking for something simple yet delicious and sweet to share then this is the recipe for you.
To get started, you will need the following ingredients.
- 2 pkg. (4 oz.) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp. peppermint extract
- 1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2/3 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
- 1/3 cup finely crushed starlight mints
Once you have all of your ingredients on hand, you will want to prep your pan. Line 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides.
After you have your pan prepped, it’s time to start making some delicious fudge!
Microwave 4 oz. Baker’s chocolate, 6 Tbsp. butter and 1/2 cup 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.
Next you will add the peppermint extract and dry JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding mix and stir until well blended.
Your next step is to add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, stirring after each addition until well blended.
Once everything is well blended, you are ready to pour your mixture into your prepared pan and press it into an even layer with the back of your spatula.
To finish your fudge, microwave the remaining butter and chocolate in large microwaveable bowl for 1-1/2 minutes or until butter is melted and stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Pour over fudge and spread to completely cover bottom layer. Then top with 2/3 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows and 1/3cup finely crushed starlight mints and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
Remove fudge from foil, cut, and serve!
This was my first time making fudge and now that I know how easy it is, I will be doing it again! This recipe was easy and delicious and kids loved it too!
