Crazy Easy Peppermint Fudge

Last weekend I was watching The Pioneer Woman’s Christmas episode on Food Network and she made fudge with only chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. It looked amazing and super easy. Almost too easy.

Coincidently I had almost an entirely full can of sweetened condense milk left over after making these candy cane jello shots and needed to do something with it asap.

I’ve never made fudge before and I’m not much of a baker.

To be honest, there have been a few cookie recipes lately that didn’t make the blog (they were really that bad).

But this fudge … it really looked doable.

And guess what? I did it! 

And it was delicious.

I packed it up (we had a few pieces but this kind of stuff is dangerous in the house) and gave it to the sweet ladies at Austin’s daycare.

They loved it! They asked me if I had a catering company. Yep, that good.

If you have a Christmas party to go to you should make my candy cane jello shots and then make fudge with the left over condensed milk.

You will be extremely popular.

Peppermint Fudge (from The Pioneer Woman)
1 bag chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Crushed peppermint candies
Foil to line your pan
Baking spray

1. Line a 9×9 inch pan with foil extending over the edges. Spray with some baking spray to keep the fudge from sticking.

2. Pour your chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk into a glass bowl or double boiler. I just used a glass bowl and put it on top of a medium sized sauce pan that had some simmering water underneath on the stove. Fold your chocolate and sweetened condensed milk together constantly until it’s all combined and becomes the texture of marshmallow fluff.

3. Pour your chocolate mixture into the pan and spread it out right away. Top with crushed peppermint candies.

4. Place in the fridge overnight and when it’s firm pull the foil out of the pan and then peel it from the fudge. Place on a cutting board and cut into squares and serve.

Keep cold until right before serving.

    I love easy sweet treats like this and it looks delish! I love peppermint bark so I’m sure I’d love this too.

    Thank you for sharing. I will be making these this weekend with my 10 yr old sister. She is into cooking and baking right now and this is a quick and easy treat for her to make and share. Thanks again.

    Does it matter what kind of chocolate chips? Milk chocolate or semi-sweet?
