Peppermint Fudge - TSLCThis 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!

  1. I don’t know why I ever made fudge any other way. So smooth! I put green food coloring in to do Christmas colors. BIG MISTAKE! It’s delicious but a bit strange looking.

  2. wondering if I could use part of the bag os Andes Creamy White Chips with Bits of Peppermint candy in it ???

  3. YOU CAN USE ANY KIND OF CHIPS TO MAKE DIFFERENT FLAVORS OF THIS FUDGE…BUT I MICROWAVE THEM TO MELT JUST STIR AFTER ABOUT A MINUTE AND A HALF…I MAKE PEANUT BUTTER….CHOCOLATE MINT..USE MINT CHIPS….USE WHATEVER FLAVOR CHIPS YOU WANT

  4. can you use chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips?

  5. if I wanted to send some of the fudge through the mail, would it keep?

  6. My daughter and I made this candy for Christmas and it was wonderful. So nice and creamy and pepperminty. I will definitely keep this recipe.

  9. Is this sweetened condensedmlk or evaporated milk?

    Oh Judy – that looks awesome. Sure wish I could help you eat it up…so I wouldn’t have to eat it all by myself. I adore easy peasy recipes like this. SO glad you shared!
