Easy Five Ingredient Fudge full of Delicious Mint Chocolate Goodness making my new favourite… Mint Aero Fudge! No Sugar Thermometers, No Boiling, Just Easy!
So it’s obvious that I love a bit of Mint Aero. Like.. there’s quite a few recipes on my blog already such as my Mint Aero Drip Cake, No-Bake Mint Aero Cheesecake and more, and I just couldn’t resist another. This is something I have made for a little while since a friend of mine (Kelly) made some and said she was inspired by me… and I was like I MUST MAKE SOME NOW. So I did, and I’m obsessed.
I’ve made it several times over, all with different chocolates. The first time, just Milk Chocolate, and it was delightful. The second with just Dark Chocolate, and it was wonderful. The times after that? Half and half and it was perfect. You can choose which way to go, or even try white chocolate, but obviously its up to you. I just adore the combination of part milk and part dark as I don’t like it overly sweet all the time, and not overly bitter.
Some fudge recipes that are similar to this one don’t use Icing Sugar, and you don’t really have to, but I find it really does help it set. Its up to you, and it does take a bit of welly, but beating in the sieved icing sugar is good and it makes the mixture so thick. Mixing in the Aero pieces after is a bit of a struggle if you use a bowl that is too small, so make sure you use one that is big enough!
As you can see, mine is speckled all over with Mint Aero pieces and crumbs, and I potentially went a little crazy with the Mint Aero… but I just love it. Honestly, I love it. When its on offer I always stock up, and I can’t wait to make a version of this with the Orange Aero next week.. Yum! I cut mine up into inch size pieces as you don’t need a lot of it, and it easily lasts for a long time in the fridge. If you want it slightly less sweet, don’t use icing sugar in it, or use just dark chocolate. I hope you love it as much as I do! Enjoy! x
Mint Aero Fudge!
- 397 g Condensed Milk (one tin)
- 250 g Dark Chocolate
- 250 g Milk Chocolate
- 75 g Icing Sugar
- 300-400 g Mint Aero (bubbles/bars)
- Line a tin with parchment paper – I used a 9×9″ Square Tin as it makes a nice depth of fudge for this recipe!
- Put the Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Condensed Milk into a heavy based saucepan – melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well.
- Or melt the two chocolates together carefully in the microwave/double boiler, and then add in the Condensed Milk and mix well till smooth.
- Once melted, tip in the sifted icing sugar and combine well, it might take a bit of beating, but its worth it!
- Fold through 3/4 of the Mint Aero you are using, or more if you fancy, and then pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture. Sprinkle on some mint aero crumbs, and some whole bubbles/pieces and press into the top of the fudge and store in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours (Or preferably overnight) to set!
- Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares – I cut my tray into small squares of fudge, about 1inch in size! Return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting if its still a little soft– ENJOY!
- This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly!
- You can use all Milk Chocolate, or all Dark Chocolate if you wish, but its up to you!
- You could easily also use this with the Orange Aero, normal Chocolate Aero, or any other chocolate bar you fancy!
- Using icing sugar is optional - but without I would use 100g more chocolate!
