I'd much rather have a glass of milk these days than beer...especially when it's paired with some chocolate :) So I got into the St. Patrick's Day spirit yesterday by making these Peppermint Patty Brownie Cookies!
Mine looked NOTHING like the recipe I found on Pinterest but they tasted good so that's all that matters, right? Recipe here
I continued with the Mint Theme- My husband's birthday is this week and since he LOVES mint chocolate ice cream
I made him Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge.
It tastes like mint chocolate ice cream...in fudge!
3 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
3/4 cups mini chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons mint extract
Green food coloring
Combine your white chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for about a minute. Stir and if needs longer, heat for 30-45 additional seconds. Mix in the can of sweetened condensed milk, mint extract and green food coloring and let sit for a minute to cool. Fold in 3/4 cup of the mini chocolate chips.
Line an 8x8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pour your fudge mixture into the pan and top with the remaining 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
That's it! You have mint chocolate chip fudge perfect for St. Patrick's Day...or any mint lover!
