Peppermint is not a flavor I would typically choose, but there’s just something about the combination of peppermint and chocolate that I can’t resist, especially at Christmastime!
This fudge is an ah-mazing combination of those flavors, made even better by how very simple it is to make. My husband’s already requested that I make another batch for our Christmas Day celebration, and while you can actually make this ahead of time and freeze it, I don’t think it would last in our house!
- 1 12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 12-ounce bag white chocolate baking chips
- 2 15-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy
Line a 9″ square pan with foil or parchment paper.
In a double boiler, combine chocolate chips and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Heat until melted and smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Spread chocolate fudge mixture in pan.
In a double boiler, combine white chocolate chips and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Heat until melted and smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peppermint extract.
Spread carefully over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with peppermint candy, pressing lightly to attach the candy to the fudge.
Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
Remove pan from refrigerator and life the foil out of the pan. Carefully peel off the foil and slice the fudge into 1″x1″ pieces. Serve chilled.
TIP: If you don’t have a double boiler, fill a saucepan with water and set a glass bowl on top of it. It works just as well!
