Ingredients

Peppermint Chocolate Layer:

  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) chopped bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

White Chocolate Layer:

  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-1/4 cup white chocolate chopped or high quality white chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup crushed peppermints or candy canes divided

Instructions

  1. Line an 8 x 8 square pan with parchment paper leaving an overhang (or foil) and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan with hot water on medium, heat bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate with condensed milk, butter, and espresso powder, stirring constantly until melted and smooth, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and peppermint extracts.
  3. Pour the mixture into prepared pan, smoothing the top with an offset spatula. Place the pan in the refrigerator to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, make the White Chocolate Layer - Rinse the bowl or get another heatproof bowl and set over the same saucepan over heated water. Pour 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk and add white chocolate and butter, stirring constantly until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Pour the white chocolate layer over the peppermint layer, spreading evenly with an offset spatula. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Place the pan back in the refrigerator and chill until firm about 3 hours.
  5. Once fudge is set, use overhang edges to lift the fudge out of the pan. Top with a few more crushed candy cane pieces if desired. Cut into squares. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
