Sometimes you just need an easy no bake holiday recipe! Well here it is!
I brought these babies to work one day and I am not kidding when I say I had coworkers (and their family) texting me all week for the recipe. So I decided to share!
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup premium white chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract optional
- 1/3 cup crushed candy canes divided. About 5 regular-sized candy canes, crushed
Line an 8x8 square pan with aluminum foil and lightly butter the sides and bottom of the foil. Set aside.
Divide condensed milk equally into two separate small/medium saucepans (just over 1/2 cup in each pan).
Add dark chocolate chips to one pan and white chocolate chips to the other.
Melt chocolate chips over medium heat, stirring constantly until completely melted.
Once chocolate has melted, remove dark chocolate mixture from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Immediately spread evenly into prepared pan.
Once white chocolate has melted, remove from heat and stir in mint extract, if using. Stir in 1/4 cup crushed peppermint pieces and immediately spread evenly over chocolate layer.
Immediately sprinkle with remaining crushed peppermint pieces.
Allow fudge to harden completely before slicing and serving (about 4-6 hours at room temperature, or about 1-2 hours in refrigerator).
