Q: Can I use dark chocolate instead of white chocolate? A: While you can use dark chocolate, it will significantly alter the flavor and color of the fudge. White chocolate is recommended to maintain the light color that complements the green minty hues.

Q: How long does mint chocolate fudge last? A: Mint chocolate fudge can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to 2 months, ensuring it’s well-wrapped to avoid freezer burn.

Q: Can I substitute the flour or cake mix with something gluten-free? A: Absolutely! You can use a gluten-free flour blend or a gluten-free cake mix to make this fudge suitable for those avoiding gluten.
