Day 6: Grasshopper Fudge
Did you know that if you're a thin mints fan that you don't have to wait for the girl scouts to come a-knockin' at your door to enjoy them? Grasshopper cookies by Keebler are quite awesome and quite minty and I lurve them! Know what I love more?
Oh yeah babe! This is the easiest, most tasty mint fudge you can make. The Mr loves Thin Mints and Melt Away Mints so this is definitely a winner in his book! Mine too. Let's get to making this delectable dish.
(Makes 36 squares)
12 oz fat free sweetened condensed milk
Keebler Grasshopper Cookies (8 servings)
1 bag Andes Mint Baking Chips
Take HALF of your grasshopper cookies and break them down in your blender or food processor.
Line an 8x8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Add your grasshopper crumbs.
Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and give another light coat of cooking spray on top and press down again.
Add the Andes baking chips to a microwave safe dish.
Add your sweetened condensed milk. Microwave the fudge for 2 minutes.
While the fudge is warming, cut the rest of the grasshopper cookies into small pieces.
Stir the melted mint chocolate and milk together until just combined. It begins to set quickly so make fast work of it.
Add half of the cut up cookie pieces to the fudge and stir.
Pour into the 8x8 pan.
Add the rest of the cut up cookie pieces to the top and press down into the fudge. Flip the ends of the foil up to cover it and put it in the fridge for 2-3 hours or until set.
When it's set, remove the foil from the pan and cut into 36 pieces.
They make the perfect gift! (After you sneak a piece or two for yourself, of course!)
