"I double this recipe and put it in a heart-shaped silicone baking mold for Valentine's Day! I prefer using silicone baking molds as it is easier to pop right out of the mold without having to use a cooking/baking spray." — Mrs.EmilyKendall

semisweet chocolate chips (such as Hershey's® Special Dark)
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons
pure peppermint extract
crushed peppermint candies, or more to taste
I tasted the mix before I spread the fudge in the dish, and I felt the mint flavor was far too subtle so I increased the extract by an additional 50%. This made it just right, in my opinion. Also, I wouldn't even think of going for 5-6 mins in the microwave-the mix should be melted long before that. My biggest issue is the fudge is VERY soft. I will be storing any uneaten portions in the fridge for sure.
