Well, this is certainly an interesting use of the dreaded mince meat. I imagine these would be very rich, dense and moist. The spices in the mince meat will add a wonderful depth, and there is nothing better than spice and chocolate.
Mincemeat Fudge Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup mincemeat
1/2 cup nuts (walnuts, almonds)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 oz. chocolate melted over hot water
3/4 cup sifted pastry flour
1/4 tsp. salt
Cream butter, add sugar gradually, and cream together thoroughly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add mince meat, nuts, vanilla and melted chocolate. Fold in flour and salt, which have been sifted together. Pour into a shallow pan, 8″ by 12″, which has been greased and lined with waxed paper, and bake in a moderate oven (350F.) for 30 to 35 minutes. Turn out on waxed paper and cut while hot into small squares like fudge. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
