This peppermint fudge is so good. If you like peppermint, you won’t be able to leave this fudge alone. I made it this afternoon and just keep on going back for one more little piece! One of my favorite candies. This makes a great gift and you can add a peppermint cane to the package as a decoration!3 1/2 cups white chips (I used Nestles Toll House Premier White Morsels) 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 1/2 cups finely crushed peppermint candy canes (I used 18 of the ones that are about 6 inches long. I don’t like chunks of the peppermint in my fudge. I crushed mine in my coffee grinder. You can also put in plastic bag and crush with rolling pin). 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract Couple drops red food coloring (Optional) Line an 8 inch square dish with aluminum foil. Grease the foil with butter or margarine. Combine the chips and milk in a saucepan and melt on the stove on medium heat stirring often to keep from burning. Once melted remove from heat and stir in crushed candy canes and extract. Pour into 8 x 8 dish. If using the food coloring you can add along with the candy canes but I found it makes the fudge pink. I dipped a toothpick in the food coloring and kind of swirled it into the candy once it was in the dish. Put in refrigerator for about 1 1/2 hours or until fudge sets up and you can cut it with a knife. Makes about 24 pieces. Enjoy!
