White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

Christmas coming and that means baking and candy making.  I love both.  Cookies are fun, but I love making candy.  Right now I am totally into making fudge.  This is a very easy recipe for a sweet treat and looks fantastic on a tray of goodies or wrapped up for gift giving.  The chocolate version we used to make for teacher gifts.  I tried to keep it from the kids by calling it Poison Fudge…it didn’t work!

Gather your ingredients and a good heavy bottomed pot.

Getting everything ready

This time I want to make peppermint fudge and as an added enticement crushed several candy canes.  They are bright and should look good in the white fudge.  First I tried my rolling pin, but in the end, I used a small hammer.  Not exactly a precise instrument, but definitely effective.

I saved some of the bigger pieces to put on the bottom of my pan, which will be the top of my fudge.  The plan is to have these tasty chunks showing when I turn it over.  Don’t forget to spray your pan for easy removal.  You can make this in a 9×13 pan but I chose a loaf pan and will then cut them in slabs.  If you decide to put it in the 9×13 save the chucks to sprinkle on top later.  You may need more candy!

Chunks of Candy Cane

Start by melting your butter on low.  This will give you some time to pull everything together and measure out ingredients.  With candy making it all seems to happen at once, so by getting it all measured out in correct portions saves time and candy!

Once the butter is melted, add your sugar and cream.  Take a couple of minutes to stir this slowly until it is all incorporated then turn up the heat to medium.  You need to be stirring this continually as it can scorch easily.  Once the cream mix comes to a rolling boil, one you can’t stir down, set your timer for  5 minutes.

After your timer goes, remove from heat and add your flavouring, chocolate and marshmallow cream.  Stir, stir, stir.

Crushed Candy Canes

Last, dump in the crushed candy canes.  It looks so pretty.  Once this is all mixed in, take a spatula and fill your loaf pan, or if a 9×13 then spread it evenly over the pan.

Set your fudge to one side, you can cover it with wax paper, but nothing tight as it needs to cool and set.  I will leave mine overnight before cutting it.

The bigger chunks did not look as great as I thought they would, and another bit of a pain to cut around.  Note:  next time crush all the candy.

So good

This is amazing.  A rich peppermint taste with a smooth creamy texture.  I hope you enjoy it.
