Chocolate Peppermint Fudge
Fudge is one of my favorite treats. It’s so easy to make and I mean all that chocolate, how can you not love it. For the Christmas season I had to add peppermint! To this Chocolate Peppermint Fudge I used a standard fudge recipe with a little bit of peppermint extract and some peppermint chips on top!
How to make Chocolate Peppermint Fudge:
Step one: Add your semisweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and peppermint extract to a large microwavable bowl. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time mixing between until fully melted. The best way to melt chocolate in the microwave is low and slow, no need to rush things.
Step two: Once everything is melted mix until well combined. Pour these ingredients into a casserole dish. I used a 8×8 casserole dish and I lined parchment paper for easy removal. Last top with peppermint crunch baking chips.
Step three: Place in the fridge until set. This will take at least 2 hours. Then slice into fudge pieces and enjoy!
Melting chocolate can be a little tricky so it’s important to use a higher quality chocolate. I bought a chocolate chips for this recipe but you could also use a chocolate baking bar that was made for baking and melting. I placed them in microwave safe bowls and only heated for 30 seconds at a time and mixed. It only took about 1 minute each to be completely melted and smooth.
If you want to skip the microwave you could melt each separately in a double boiler instead.
