Peppermint Bittersweet Chocolate Fudge Recipe


If you're anything like me, you LOVE fudge. :) I never imagined making my own would be so easy. This delicious chocolate fudge came together in less than 5 minutes. Can't beat that. And the mix of semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate a more distinct flavor. Less overwhelmingly sweet and more cultured. :)

Peppermint Bittersweet Chocolate Fudge Recipe
Makes 64 pieces (2 pounds)

2-1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp salt
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 candy canes, finely chopped or crushed

Line an 8x8 inch baking dish with wax paper. Set aside. 

In a 3 quart sauce pan (or using a double boiler*) combine the chocolate chips, salt, and sweetened condensed milk over low heat. Stir continuously until chips are melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Transfer to the 8x8 inch dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle with candy cane bits and gently push into the fudge. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until hardened. 

Remove the fudge from the dish by pulling out the wax paper liner. Place on a cutting board and pull back the edges of the wax paper. Cut into 64 squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
