3 Ingredient Peppermint Fudge

This is a tale of me tackling one of my greatest dessert achievements to date.
But first, the prologue.
One night, as a kid, I was given the task of making fudge from a kids cookbook as a treat for family home evening. I showed my mom the recipe, she approved, and I got to work in the kitchen.
Hours later, we sat down to eat and discovered I somehow (heaven knows how, we've all checked and double checked) made ice cream instead of fudge. And whats worse, it was disgusting.
So I've steered clear of fudge until now.

Then, on a lazy Saturday morning, I was scrolling through my facebook feed when a shared post from a friend was there, staring at me, screaming at me to try this recipe.
It's the Pioneer Woman's recipe. You just don't say no to a Ree Drummond recipe.
It even says so in the bible. 

So, I took to the kitchen and tried this fudge out...and boy is it good!

What you'll need:
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 candy cane - crushed

How to do it:
1. On the stove top, add condensed milk and chocolate chips. On low heat, begin to mix, and stir until it is well blended. (This should take about 10 minutes or so).
2. In an 8 x 8 baking dish, line with foil and spray foil with cooking spray. Once fudge is mixed well with no lumps and is smooth, pour into baking dish. Top with crushed peppermint.
3. Let cool in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours, then remove from baking dish and cut into squares.
Serve and enjoy!

  1. This looks so good. I had a similar moment, but mine involved almost burning the house down while making brownies. I haven't been much help in the kitchen since then.

    I'm going to have to brave it to make this. It would be perfect to take to my in-laws for Christmas.
