ST. PATRICK'S DAY SPECIAL - WHITE CHOCOLATE MINT FUDGE
When I am hosting a St. Patrick's Day party, one of my favorite things to do is making some green desserts. This festival gives me an opportunity to make the most of the color I LOVE - that's Green. Hence, I couldn't resist myself from making some moist, buttery and soft St. Patrick's Day Fudge.
I just love to use Mint extract with Green Food Color. It just seems right and also anything minty with chocolate tastes divine.
What are the ingredients used in this recipe? Well, I have used white chocolate - I simply LOVE that chocolaty, melty white chocolate - along with some Mint essence, Green Food Color, and Condensed Milk. Well, I am a sucker for Condensed milk and I genuinely enjoy mint and chocolate as a couple. So, I just had to make this. You might as well say, that I have made this for myself since this has all the ingredients which I love.
How to Make White Chocolate Mint Fudge?
Fudge is one of the easiest no-bake desserts. It's just throwing in ingredients and freezing it. The only time taking part is the time it takes to freeze. Or else it's so easy to make.
To make Fudge, you will have to mix Chocolate with Condensed Milk. You can also replace Chocolate with Peanut butter to make a Peanut butter Fudge. The quantity of Chocolate and Condensed Milk should be in the ratio of 2:1. Or else, you'll end up with an excessively sweet Fudge.
After you mix in these two basic ingredients, then you just need to put it on a low heat and stir until the mixture thickens. Adding a dollop of Butter gives it a nice glaze and even tastes better. At this point, you can also include some brown sugar or powdered white sugar if you wish to. However, I have not used either of those. I thought butter will make it a little unhealthy and there is no need for extra sugar when you have Condensed milk with White Chocolate. (If it would have been dark chocolate, then I might have used sugar).
Further, you can add the mint extract along with green food color, to bring out that exceptionally cute St. Patrick's day look to your festive Fudges.
And then after you cool it down to room temperature and place it in your tray, you can freeze it for 2 hours or more. You need to serve this cold or else, it gets soggy very quickly.
How is the Fudge Batter supposed to be?
The Fudge Batter or the Mixture of Condensed milk with chocolate should be having a ribbon consistency when you pour it in the tray. If you do not beat your batter properly, your fudges will not turn out to be firm and shall not have the right shape, even after freezing overnight. You don't need to add any baking agent or Eggs while making the batter. However, you can use Butter if you wish to.
How to Store Fudges?
- You can keep it in an airtight container / plastic container or a Self - Sealing Bag at room temperature for 1-2 weeks
- You can refrigerate the fudges and make it last longer for approximately 2-3 weeks.
- Fudges should always be served cold.
St. Patty's Day Green Desserts is one of my favorites. Also, the minty flavors with the green color just seem perfect.
How Do I, Harden Fudge?
- You should never overcook your fudge, white stirring on the flame.
- Cool your fudge down to room temperature, before popping it into the freezer.
- Make sure, you beat the Fudge with a silicon or wooden spoon after it has cooled down to room temperature.
- Pour your Fudge in a nicely greased baking tray.
