Candy Cane Fudge
This fudge is a delightfully festive looking treat for the holidays! It is easy to make, can be made by children and makes a great homemade gift for the neighbors and your kids' teachers. It is a twist on my original Quick Fudge recipe.
2 cups white chocolate chips or 450g white chocolate
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
10 to 12 candy canes
Crush candy canes into very small broken pieces. (A mortar and pestle work great for this, or just put them in a seal-able storage and roll a rolling pin over it several times.)
In large glass measuring cup, combine white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.
Microwave on high 3 minutes.
Stir until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
Stir in vanilla extract.
Stir in 2/3 of the crushed candy canes.
Spread evenly into foil-lined 8-inch square pan.
Sprinkle remaining crushed candy canes over the top.
Chill until firm, about 2 hours. Makes about 1 1/4 pounds fudge.
