  • Ready In

  1. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, and grease the foil.
  2. Combine the vanilla chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently until almost melted, remove from heat and continue to stir until smooth. When chips are completely melted, stir in the peppermint extract, food coloring, and candy canes.
  3. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Chill for 2 hours, then cut into squares.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was a huge hit at work! I used white choco chips instead of vanilla chips.

Made this for Christmas party & everyone LOVED it! It took 25 (+ or -) candy canes to get 1 1/2 c.; I put them inside a large ziplock bag before crushing them with a hammer (helpful hint :)). V...

This one was a hit at my house. I only had 1 cup of crushed candy canes on hand, and it turned out great (12 candy canes = 1 cup crushed). I almost think that 1-1/2 cups might have been too mu...

My husband helped me make this fudge--that's how eager he was to try it! It was worth his effort. I didn't add the food coloring, because I wanted white fudge. I also sprinkled an extra cup o...
