I finally got around to using a bag of Mint M&M’s instead of snacking on them It’s very unfortunate they come in such small bags.

I think.

Perhaps it’s better they come only in these small bags, less snacking and more baking happens. Or at least that is what I am going to tell myself.

This is the easiest fudge ever, I have been making one version or another for years.

This is the Canadian measurement conversion that I have come up with, the original recipes are all American, who in case you didn’t know, have 14 oz cans of condensed milk, which is 414 ml.

We generally have 300ml cans here in Canada. Which makes recipes with condensed milk incredibly confusing and sometimes nearly impossible to convert measurement wise.

I have perfected this to the literal half square of chocolate for us Canucks to make.

Ingredients Needed:

one can of sweetened condensed milk 300ml
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
9 1/2 squares of semi-sweet baking chocolate
one cup of Mint flavored Christmas M&M’s

Mint M&M Fudge

When you are spending so much money on chocolate, you have to use real vanilla.

Ok, here’s the easy. In a large microwave safe bowl, and a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup works perfectly, combine the chocolate and condensed milk.

Microwave for one minute, then stir, then again for 45 seconds. Keep stirring until the chocolate is completely melted.

Let it sit and cool a wee while and move on to the next step.

Line an 8×8 baking pan with tinfoil, leaving little handles on two sides so you can pull it out completely when the fudge is set.

Mix in the cup of M&M’s minus what you need to put on top. I made these large squares, 25 in the pan, but this could easily be done 6×6. Count those M&M’s out for the top.

It’s ok if they start melting, in fact it made them even better, the mint chocolate inside swirled around in the fudge and the crunchy outside gave it a fantastic texture.

Refrigerate 2 to 2.5 hours until it’s set. Using those foil handles, pull the entire block of fudge out.

Slice with a sharp, big knife.

Instructions

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, and a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup works perfectly, combine the chocolate and condensed milk.
