So I learned a good lesson when making this fudge. The cooking times actually matter. When I made it the first time, my daughter was helping, and she was keeping track of the cooking time. It is only supposed to cook for 2 hours, but she got the finish time wrong and wrote down the time for it to be done for 3 hours. I realized about 2 and a half hours into it, that the time was wrong, tried to salvage the fudge, with it’s consistency okay, but it was scorched. So off to go buy more mint chocolate chips and try again. Second version tasted much better. I think the best thing about this recipe is it reminds me very much of my mother’s mint fudge, which brings to my mind so many Christmas memories. We used to secretly deliver goodies each week for the month of December, to 3 families in our Church and my mother would make big plates of goodies including the fudge. What fun it was as children to get to deliver those goodies! We never had Christmas without mint fudge until last year when she was too sick to make it. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family has this season. Merry Christmas everyone!
