It seems as if every year during my Christmas baking I find a new fudge recipe that I want to try... This one caught my eye because it includes a few of my husband's favorite things - mint and oreos! :) So this one was for him!
Mint Oreo Fudge
(recipe found at http://iwasborntocook.blogspot.com)
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounces) can sweetened condensed milk
dash of salt
approximately 20 oreo cookies, broken into pieces
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
In heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in cookies, mint and vanilla. Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8 or 9" square pan. Chill 2 hours or until firm in the refrigerator. Lift fudge out of pan, peel off paper and cut into squares. Store covered in refrigerator.
