Nothing could be easier to make than this delicious peppermint fudge. And with most candy canes on sale, there isn’t a better time to indulge.
You will need the following ingredients to make this quick fudge recipe:
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
21 ounces sweetened condensed milk
Candy canes or hard peppermint candy
First, place your candy canes in a freezer bag and pound them to any size you like. This is an excellent job for children, however you may wish to double bag the candy before they begin to smash it.
Coat the bottom and sides of a 9X13 casserole with cooking spray, or place parchment paper on the bottom of the casserole and butter the sides.
Put the chocolate chips in a pot and add 21 ounces of sweetened condensed milk. Heat on a low setting and stir until combined and melted.
Quickly place the melted ingredients in to the casserole dish. Sprinkle with the peppermint candy and allow fudge to set. Refrigerating it will speed up the process but will also make the fudge hard to cut. You can always refrigerate it and then take it out to warm before cutting.
Optional toppings can include crushed peanut brittle, coconut flakes, grated white chocolate or even hard strawberry candies. Enjoy!
