Ingredients

  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
  • 1/2 cup peppermint candy or candy canes, crushed

Instructions

  • Line an 8 inch square pan with aluminum foil and lightly spay with cooking spray or grease with butter. Make sure you leave enough foil on each side to life the fudge out when cool.
  • In the top of a double-boiler over medium heat heat up the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Stir until melted and creamy which should take about 7 minutes or so.
  • Immediately pour chocolate mixture into your prepared pan and smooth out the top.
  • Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies and lightly press in.
  • Cool in the refrigerator for about 2 hours and remove from pan using your foil handles. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes

Sharon's Expert Tips:
For the best texture, be sure to slowly melt the chocolate into the mixture using a double boiler or glass bowl over a small pot of simmering water. Heating the chocolate too fast will result in grainy fudge. Alternatively, you can also microwave the mixture in 30-second increments, on medium heat until the chocolate chips are melted.
