Recipe Swap: Mint Oreo Fudge

The theme for this month's swap was holiday cookies or treats and I could have more elated when I received this recipe from Melissa of I Was Born to Cook. As you may have noticed, I love mint and chocolate, so this couldn't have been a more perfect for me. But not only was it perfect, it was so simple to make!!

I haven't found a fudge that I like quite as much as my mom's recipe - which takes forever and a lot of constant stirring to make - but this recipe is definitely right up there with it!! Now, instead of waiting until Christmas every year to enjoy my fudge, this recipe is simple enough that I can make it any time of the year!!

Thank you Melissa for such a great recipe!!

Mint Oreo Fudge
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • dash of salt
  • approximately 20 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces (I used the holiday ones with the red cream center)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  1. In heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in cookies, mint and vanilla.
  2. Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8 or 9 inch square pan. Chill 2 hours (or until firm) in the refrigerator.
  3. Lift fudge out of pan, peel off paper and cut into squares. Store covered in refrigerator.


  1. Yum!! I, too, love mint and chocolate. I've never made my own fudge, though. I'll have to give it a shot sometime.

    Thanks for being part of the recipe swap!

  2. Glad you liked it! I think I might have to whip up a quick batch for next week :).

  3. It's Melissa btw...not sure why that came up anonymous!
