Peppermint Fudge

18 oz white chocolate chips (I used a mix of white chocolate chips (12 ounces) and a partial bag of white almond bark candy wafers.)

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

2 Tablespoons heavy cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons pure peppermint extract

1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

1 cup crushed peppermint candies (I only had the candy canes decorating my tree and made a quick dash to the convenience store for Starlite mints.)


In a heatproof bowl over simmering water, melt chips, condensed milk, cream, and baking soda.  (I actually just use my heavy Le Creuset pan and keep the heat very low.)

Stir frequently; heat until smooth.

Remove from heat. 

Stir in extracts; sift in powdered sugar. (Don't skimp on sifting. Lumps in the powdered sugar are not fun.)

Add crushed candies.

Pour into a parchment or foil lined 8×8 inch pan. (I sprayed my foil with Pam.)

Top with sprinkles.

Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until set. 

Lift lining and fudge from pan to cut into 1 inch cubes. (Yields about 64 pieces)
