Peppermint Hot Chocolate Fudge

Homemade fudge is one of my favorite holiday treats, but I never got a chance to make (or taste) any this holiday season. Even though Christmas has come and gone, I decided to make a quick batch of fudge using only the things that I already had in the pantry. I started with this plain fudge recipe, but changed a few things to accomodate my pantry contents. The end result was so good! I was a little concerned, as I always am when I stray from an actual recipe, but the fudge turned out to be delicious- so much so that I wrote down my recipe to make next Christmas.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup of mint-flavored hot cocoa mix
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
4 Andes Mints
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup of milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

 

Roughly chop the Andes mints.

 

Add all the dry ingredients to a large, microwave-safe bowl. Mix thoroughly.
Add milk. Place the butter on top, and microwave until the butter melts (about 2-3 minutes).
Take out of the microwave, and add the vanilla. Stir vigorously until smooth.

 

Pour into a greased pan. *Tip: Use butter to grease pan instead of oil or Pam spray. I used Pam spray, and it left the bottom side of the fudge a little oily.
Let sit for a couple hours, then cut into small squares. To speed up the process, you can place the pan in the freezer for a half hour or so.
