Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup peppermint crunch baking chips

Instructions
 

  • 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. This could have 2-3 minutes to cook.
  • Once everything is melted mix until well combined. Pour these ingredients into an 8x8 casserole dish (I used parchment paper for easy removal). Top with peppermint crunch baking chips. 
  • Place in the fridge until set. This will take at least 2 hours. Then slice into fudge pieces and enjoy!

Notes

Add parchment paper to your casserole dish with overhang. This way you can easily remove the entire block of fudge and slice it when it's ready. 

Melting chocolate

Melting chocolate can be a little tricky so it's important to use higher quality chocolate.
I bought 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 it on the stovetop instead.
