  • 1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk (divided in half)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (divided)
  • 7 candy canes (crushed and divided)


  • Prepare an 8x8 pan. Line it with aluminum foil and then liberally spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray. 
  • Divide the condensed milk into 2 separate microwavable bowls. (It should be 1/2 cup of the condensed milk in each bowl. 
  • Add 1 cup of dark chocolate chips to one of the bowls, and 1 cup of white chocolate chips to the other bowl. 
  • Microwave the bowl with the dark chocolate/condensed milk mixture first. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then 30 seconds again. Add in 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract. 
  • Stir and then spread evenly in the prepared pan.
  • Add your candy canes to a zip-top bag, seal the bag, then crush them. I just bang the bag on the counter but you could use a rolling pin or a meat mallet too. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the crushed candy for the topping. 
  • Microwave the other bowl of condensed milk and white chocolate chips. Again, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then 30 seconds again. 
  • Add in 1/4 teaspoon of the peppermint extract and the crushed peppermints. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the white chocolate mixture over the dark chocolate and spread evenly. Immediately top with the reserved crushed candy canes. 
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours then you can lift the foil out and discard. Slice the fudge into bite size piece and enjoy!
