2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

14 oz sweetened condensed milk, divided

2 c white chocolate chips

½ tsp peppermint extract

¾ c crushed candy canes, divided into ¼ c and ½ c


Start by preparing the pan. Take a 9×9 inch pan line it with foil and give it a coating of nonstick spray.

Next let’s melt the sweet chocolate. In a saucepan set on low heat combine 2 cups of sweet chocolate chips with half of the sweetened condensed milk (7 oz). Stir until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.

Now pour the melted sweet chocolate into the prepared pan and place it in the refrigerator to cool down.

While that’s chilling let’s melt the chocolate. Using another saucepan, on low heat combine 2 cups of chocolate chips with the remaining 7 oz of sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat before it completely melts.

To add some flavor to our fudge stir in ½ tsp of peppermint extract and ¼ cup of crushed candy canes into the melted white chocolate mixture.

Take out the chilled sweet chocolate layer, from the fridge and pour over it this lovely peppermint-infused white chocolate mix to form a second layer.

Lastly sprinkle on top a ½ cup of crushed candy canes. Gently press them into the fudge to give it some extra crunch and festive appeal.

Now comes patience! Refrigerate your creation for around 2 to 3 hours. Even overnight until it sets perfectly.

When you’re ready to serve this treat lift out your fudge from the pan using the foil as handles. Carefully peel off the foil. Cut into pieces.


To construct a Peppermint Bark Fudge that is gluten-free you ought to make an important adjustment.
