4 Ingredient Mint Chocolate Fudge

Dessert | March 9, 2016 | By

St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner, and I am the furthest thing from Irish. But who doesn’t love celebrating the day with some drinks, some soda bread, and some green? Irish people are FUN. And when I think green, I think mint.

My mom always made the best chocolate fudge with marshmallows in it, it was to die for. It probably had something to do with the entire can of sweetened condensed milk she used in it. But oh well, it was good. Everything in moderation, right? But when you’re looking for a healthier version of fudge, this is your go to. Its really only composed of THREE main ingredients and takes about five minutes to make, what could get better then that?

To make this particular batch a little minty in honor of St. Patricks day, I added a fourth ingredient. But, you could easily leave the mint out and make it with vanilla extract, a handful of nuts, a peanut butter swirl, plain, whatever you want. The opportunities are endless…

And when you give a leprechaun some fudge, he’s going to want a glass of milk to go with it.

  1. 1/2 cup coconut oil
  2. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  3. 1/2 cup maple syrup
  4. 1 tsp mint extract
  1. Line a small loaf pan with parchment paper. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add cocoa powder, maple syrup and mint. Stir until well melted and mixed, with no clumps. Pour into the pan. Let it cool for at least an hour before cutting.
  1. For some extra flavor, add some sea salt to the top after about 10 minutes of cooling. YUM.
  2. Instead of mint, you could add vanilla. A handful of nuts or a scoop of nut butter works too.

    Hi Catilyn! Mint chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I love the easy combination here.
    It seems like we are in a similar boat! I am also a nutrition grad student and will begin my DI in August. I love following along with others going in the same direction as me!
