Ingredients

  • 24 Ounces White Chocolate Chips ounces by weight or about 4 cups by volume
  • 14 Ounces Sweetened Condensed Milk (1-can)
  • 1 Cup Soft Peppermint Candies (by volume)
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  • First, coat a 9x9-in baking dish with butter and line it with parchment paper.
  • Next, use a heavy duty food processor, or a plastic bag and meat mallet, to crush the peppermint candies. Set them aside.
  • After that, in a large saucepan, heat the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat while stirring constantly. Keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted, then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Now, add the peppermint and vanilla extracts and mix everything together.
  • Then, pour the peppermint fudge into the baking dish and use a rubber spatula to smooth it out evenly.
  • Afterward, sprinkle on the crushed peppermint candies and gently press the pieces into the warm fudge.
  • Last, place the peppermint fudge into your fridge to chill and set for at least 2-hours. Alternatively, you can leave it on the counter for at least 4-hours to set at room temperature.

Notes

The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients and a serving size of 1/16th the total recipe (1 piece when the dessert is cut into 16-equal sized squares). Actual calories will vary. The fudge can be stored in your fridge for up to 3-days. **Also, just a quick reminder, this a "soft-set," fudge recipe. Meaning, it will not be as firm as a milk or dark chocolate fudge.**
