12 DAYS OF HOLIDAY TREATS: DAY 8

Today is Day 8 of SugarSpicesLife 12 Days of Holiday Treats. This is a 12 day recipe series of holiday treats! Today’s recipe is for Peppermint Bark Fudge.

Peppermint Bark Fudge

Peppermint

Each year I like to make at least one peppermint Christmas treat. But I’m quite picky with them…I don’t like too much peppermint flavor.

The past two years I have shared:

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Oreo Peppermint Bark

Both recipes have enough peppermint to taste like Christmas (**Editor’s Note: Again, what does this even mean??), but not so much that that you feel there’s toothpaste in the recipe. It’s just the right amount!

This year my peppermint treat is this fudge. And again, it’s just the right amount of peppermint!

Sweetened Condensed Milk Fudge

I know someone out there is going to read this recipe and say this is not real fudge because it uses sweetened condensed milk.

I understand that concern. Every December growing up I would go to my grandmother’s house so we could make multiple batches of stovetop fudge to give away.

Is stovetop fudge incredible, creamy and delicious? Yes. But is it fun to have different ways of making a dessert that give a little different taste and texture? Also, yes.

One of the biggest pros for making fudge with sweetened condensed milk is that it is EASY to do, and hard to mess up!

Bottom Layer

The bottom layer of this fudge is made with semi-sweet chocolate chips, similar to the bottom of peppermint bark.

There is just 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract in the chocolate layer to give a hint of the mint taste. If you like a really minty taste, you can consider increasing the amount of extract.

Top Layer

The top layer uses white chocolate chips, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup of crushed candy canes. No peppermint extract needed due to the candy canes.

Finally, the top is sprinkled with crushed candy canes to give the fudge the feeling of peppermint bark.
