Easy chocolate swirled fudge filled peppermint and candy canes. 10 minutes, 5 ingredients!
Too early for holiday treats? Who are you kidding.
I clearly have no concept of time or seasons when it comes to holiday baking. I made you a mint chocolate chip pie in August, peppermint fudge cookies in September, peppermint patty cookie bars in October, and some crazy super-soft Gingersnaps just last week. I’m a seasonally challenged baker. But I’m warning you now, this is only the beginning of the holiday baking madness!
I made this candy cane chocolate swirl fudge over the weekend with the intention of bringing it into work on Monday. Somehow the fudge never made it into the office. No no, we didn’t eat it all! I love me some mint and chocolate but I’m not about to eat an 8×8 brick of it.
This swirly–twirly–chocolate–white–chocolate–candy–cane–crunch fudge is certainly something I do not want to share. I’m selfishly keeping it all to myself, which is fabulous and horrible at the same time. It is the season to give, after all.
My latest fudgy creation could NOT get any easier. You’re going to put in the bare minimum effort when you make today’s fudge. We’re talking one pot, five simple ingredients, and only ten minutes to throw together.
The combination of melted white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk is your fudge base. If you’d like, you can use this base for whatever add-ins you prefer – it’s a wonderful blank canvas and completely versatile for all sorts of fudge varieties. Allow the fudge to set up in the refrigerator for about 3 hours. Really, waiting is the hardest part about making this fudge! Once set, slice into tiny squares.
If you can muster up the generosity to share this divine fudge, it makes a wonderful gift for friends and family, as do these chocolate cookies with candy cane buttercream. Those cookies are great way to use any extra candy canes from the fudge, too!
I do plan to make this fudge again for my coworkers (and not only myself) in December, I swear…Print
