I found out about this recipe from my dearest online friend Bohemian Single Mom. She calls it Candy Cane Fudge and you can find the original recipe here. The original recipe calls for peppermint extract and candy canes but I think I am allergic to peppermint. It always gives me a sore throat so I just went with the chocolate goodness. My husband has been in a blissful chocolate/sugar coma ever since I made these. If you feel the pressure of Christmas/Yule coming and have no time to bake, I really recommend this recipe. It is fast, easy and uses very few ingredients.
Over low heat, melt 1 pkg (350 g) milk chocolate chips chocolate and 1 cup (250 mL) semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1 can (300 mL) Regular Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk and a dash of salt. Remove from heat. Stir in peppermint extract, if using.
Look at all that sugary goo! OK, nobody said fudge is good for you. I was not entirely convinced that this was actually fudge so I looked up the definition. At candy.about.com they write, “Fudge is a cooked chocolate confection.” Well that is what this is so yes, this is fudge!
