  • Peppermint extract
  • Candy Canes
  • Semi-Sweet chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips

    These are all of the ingredients you will need.(Tyler Clifford)
  • Sweetened condensed milk


  1. Prepare an 8-inch square baking pan by lining it with aluminum foil or parchment paper, ensuring some overhang for easy removal. Set it aside.

2. In a large saucepan, combine semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth. Spread the chocolate fudge evenly into the prepared pan. Chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the second layer.

3. In the same saucepan, combine white chocolate chips and the remaining 2/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract and half of the crushed candy canes until well combined. Remove the chocolate fudge from the refrigerator and spread the white chocolate peppermint fudge on top. Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes on top.


Leave the parchment filled pan in the fridge overnight (Tyler Clifford)

4. Return the baking pan to the refrigerator and refrigerate for at least two hours, or until the fudge is firm. Lift the edges of the parchment paper out of the pan to remove the fudge. Slice into pieces and enjoy!
