The holiday season is upon us, and it’s the most wonderful time of the year for stuffing your face with seasonal sweets. If you’re looking for a treat and have a microwave, you can whip up a festive potluck dessert or a decadent gift that will impress anyone on your list.
Candy ‘Canes Fudge
Adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction
3 cups white chocolate chips
1 ¾ cups of sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup heavy cream
½ teaspoon peppermint extract
10 crushed candy canes (plus extra for decoration)
1 large bar of dark chocolate
Mix together the white chocolate chips, condensed milk and heavy cream in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
Stir in peppermint extract and candy canes. Pour the mixture into an 8×8 pan.
Break up the dark chocolate bar into small pieces, and, using a knife, swirl them into the fudge. Decorate with additional candy canes, if desired.
Chill for at least three hours before cutting.
