Do you, my dear readers….like to make candy for Christmas?
I certainly do….and my hips and thighs prove it!
Moderation is the key isn’t it?
Of course, moderation is the key to life too!
Have a great week.
- 1 can (14 ounce) of sweetened condensed milk (I use Eagle Brand)
- 1 package (12 ounces) of semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I use Mexican clear vanilla)
- 8-9 peppermint candies, crushed for the top of the fudge.(you know the kind you sometimes get at restaurants after eating)
- Prepare an 8X8 inch baking dish by lining with foil. Be sure the foil goes up all four sides as this will aid in lifting the fudge from the dish
- Spray the foil with nonstick spray and set aside
- Place the peppermint candies in a sandwich bag and crush with rolling pin or use a heavy pan and set aside.
- In a double boiler, (or microwave) melt the chocolate chips
- Remove from the heat and add in the condensed milk, stirring until incorporated and smooth.
- Stir in the vanilla (if desired)
- Quickly pour the fudge into the prepared dish and sprinkle with the crushed peppermint.
- Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until hardened
- Carefully lift the fudge out of the dish using the foil "handles"..and cut with a sharp knife (I use a bread knife)
- Place on a pretty serving dish...I use a pedestal cake plate.
- Very pretty and looks like Christmas Candy.
- You can also use your microwave to heat your condensed milk and add in the semi sweet chocolate chips
It is simple, Sandy and so pretty!If you try it let me know how it works for you.
thanks for stopping by.
It sounds simple, Kari. I usually don’t make candy, but I used to love my mother-in-laws dark chocolate fudge with nuts. Yummy! She always made a big bowl just for me at Christmas. I shared. Wink!
