Ingredients

Instructions

  1. For the semi-sweet peppermint chocolate layer:
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Line the pan with parchment paper, allowing the excess paper to overhang the sides, set aside. In a large, heatproof bowl combine the sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, chopped chocolate, and butter; set aside. Fill a saucepan with a little water (you want it about 1/4 full) and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to barely a simmer. Place your heatproof glass bowl holding your ingredients on top of the pot. Stir frequently, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is completely smooth, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. The mixture will be very thick. Using a sturdy spatula, scrape the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Set aside while you make the second layer.
  3. For the white chocolate peppermint layer:
  4. In a large, heatproof bowl combine the sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, chopped white chocolate, and butter; set aside. Fill a saucepan with a little water (you want it about 1/4 full) and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to barely a simmer. Place your heatproof glass bowl holding your ingredients on top of the pot. Stir frequently, until the white chocolate has melted and the mixture is completely smooth, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. The mixture will be very thick. Using a sturdy spatula, scrape the fudge on top of the chocolate layer; gently spread until evenly distributed. Sprinkle the top with crushed candy canes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm enough to easily slice.
  5. Gently run a butter knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the fudge. Remove the fudge and transfer it to a cutting board. Peel off parchment paper, then slice the fudge into small pieces. Serve at once or store in an airtight container for up to a week. For more storage options, view text in the post.
