peppermint fudge

I'm totally in denial that Christmas is over. We always keep out decorations up past New Years, and I usually convince my dad to leave them up til I leave. So obviously I'm still baking Christmas-y goodies! Plus, peppermint, candy canes and fudge is just the perfect combo! (Also, this is my 300th post! Wow!)

Peppermint Fudge (recipe from girlichef)
  • 17 oz. (3 c.) white chocolate chips
  • ½stick (¼ c.) unsalted butter
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ tsp. pure peppermint extract
  • tiny pinch sea salt
  • 5 regular-size peppermint candy canes
  • Line a square (8"-9") baking pan with foil. Grease the foil and the exposed sides of the pan well with cooking spray.  Unwrap the candy canes and place them into a zippered baggie. Bash them with the bottom of a small pan until you have tiny pieces and a bit of peppermint dust (should equal ~½ cup).
  • Place the white chocolate chips, butter, and sweetened condensed milk in a glass bowl and microwave for 1 minute; stir with a wooden spoon. Stick back into microwave and heat in 30 second intervals, until the butter and the chips have melted entirely. (This is going to take a bunch of rounds to really get it all melted. Just make sure you do the 30 second increments so the chocolate doesn't burn!)
  • Add peppermint extract and salt and beat by hand for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the mixture is smooth. Stir in about ⅔ of the crushed candy canes.
  • Dump the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes over the top and press lightly. 
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until firm. Cut into squares.
Are you still in the Christmas mind set?
