Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge over incredibly fudgy and chocolaty brownies is the best combo ever. Any mint chocolate chip fan will love this easy dessert.Tips and Trick to Make the Best Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge Over Chocolaty Brownies:

  • The brownies are super chocolaty and fudgy, the trick is to use high quality chocolate and cocoa powder, just by using cocoa powder the brownies won’t be as fudgy. The ones with only cocoa powder are dense, but more cake like, I like both types, but in this recipe I went for the super fudgy version.
  • Use high quality unsweetened cocoa powder and also high quality chocolate in the brownies, as the chocolate flavor is front and center here
  • The food coloring is optional, but it will make the fudge more festive and more realistic
  • Make sure you don’t over-bake the brownies, they will become less fudgy if you do, but still delicious
  • Same applies to the dry ingredients when mixing into the brownies, better fold in the flour with a spatula so you don’t add extra air to the batter
  • Before slicing the fudge, make sure it’s fully cooled and settled, clean the knife after each cut, otherwise the slices will be messier, since the brownie may stick to the knife
  • For the fudge, use high quality white chocolate, that is the main ingredient so you want it to be the best in order to get the best taste and texture
  • White chocolate is very pretentious, so be extra, extra careful when melting it, I do 20 or 30 seconds intervals in the microwave and lots of stirring to make sure I am not overheating it, if you overheat the white chocolate it will clump and separate and it will become unusable unfortunately
  • I used chocolate melts/wafers, but if you are using regular chocolate, make sure you chop it into small pieces before adding it to the bowl to microwave
  • Use gel food coloring, it is the best in this recipe as the liquid food coloring may make the white chocolate to separate
  • You can also make JUST the fudge, it will be ready in minutes, make sure you like the pan with parchment paper for easy removal

Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge over incredibly fudgy and chocolaty brownies is the best combo ever. Any mint chocolate chip fan will love this easy dessert.Tools/Ingredients I used to make this Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge Recipe:

  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – delicious flavor, it will make any chocolate dessert amazing
  • Dark Chocolate Melts/Wafers – I love using these for the chocolate ganache as they are so easy to melt
  • White Chocolate Wafers – they redesigned to melt quicker and easier, which I find perfect for fudge recipes
  • Gel Food Coloring – this set comes in a variety of colors and it won’t add extra water to your fudge, which is great, I used the Spring Green color
  • Mint Extract – a little goes a long way, the mint flavor is refreshing and works perfectly in this chocolaty recipe
  • Parchment Paper – a kitchen staple, it just makes life so much easier with it’s non-stick magical powers
  • 9×9 inch pan – I use it for many recipes, brownies, fudge and blondies. It’s quality is great and I like the perfect measurements, it works great for smaller batch recipes

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 9 bars
Ingredients
  • Fudgy Mint Brownies:
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 stick (110 grams) + 4 tablespoons (55 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 10 ounces melted dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tbsp espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge:
  • 20 ounces white chocolate
  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • Gel food coloring - spring green color
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Fudgy Mint Brownies:
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Position oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  4. Place parchment paper in a 9X9 inch pan so it covers the bottom and 2 sides (to facilitate the brownie/fudge removal).
  5. Butter the pan or spray it with baking spray and set aside.
  6. Add 10 ounces of chocolate melts or chopped chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 25-30 seconds, stir using a rubber spatula and microwave again for 25-30 seconds. Stir well, and if needed microwave again for a few seconds, careful not to burn the chocolate.
  7. Stir well melted chocolate until smooth and set aside.
  8. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until the mixture is light, pale and fluffy. Stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  9. Add the eggs one at a time and whisk well on low-medium speed after each addition. Add mint extract and mix again for about 5 minutes on medium-high speed.
  10. In a small bowl or cup, mix together the espresso powder with warm water until the espresso powder has fully dissolved.
  11. Add the espresso mixture and melted chocolate to the batter and mix on low-medium speed until just combined. Stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  12. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and cocoa powder and add the mixture to the batter. Mix on low speed until just combined, or fold it in with a spatula.
  13. Using a spatula, fold in ½ cup of mini chocolate chips.
  14. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, use a spatula to spread the batter evenly over the entire pan.
  15. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out covered in a few sticky crumbs. I baked my brownies for 35 minutes.
  16. Let the brownie cool down to room temperature before adding the mint chocolate chip fudge layer.
  17. If the brownie layer is not very flat use a spatula to level it by pressing down the sides of the brownie.
  18. Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge:
  19. Combine the white chocolate and condensed milk in a large, microwave safe bowl.
  20. Microwave in 20 seconds increments and stir after each one until the chocolate has melted. It took me two intervals ONLY to fully melt the chocolate, make sure you stir well before you microwave again, as the remaining residual heat will melt the chocolate.
  21. Note: If you are using regular chocolate, make sure you chop it into small pieces before adding it to the bowl to microwave.
  22. Stir well until smooth, add a few drops of gel food color and the mint extract. Stir using a spatula until well combined and the color has been distributed equally.
  23. Pour mixture into the lined pan over the cooled brownies, top with 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. Slightly press the mini chocolate chips into the fudge and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  24. Run a knife thru the sides of the pan without parchment paper, lift the dessert out of the pan, place on a cutting board and using a sharp knife cut in into squares.
  25. Clean the knife a few times as brownie bites may stick to it.
  26. The fudge can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 days.
  27. Enjoy!
