  1. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, and grease the foil.
  2. Combine the vanilla chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently until almost melted, remove from heat and continue to stir until smooth. When chips are completely melted, stir in the peppermint extract, food coloring, and candy canes.
  3. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Chill for 2 hours, then cut into squares.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Not what I expected... Not really a "fudge" texture or consistency. After reading the reviews, I noticed that one member described the texture as "fondant" like. This is a very good description....

Everyone loved this fudge! Instead of just mixing in the food coloring I did a swirl effect right before putting it in the refrigerator.

This is my second year making this recipe and I will probably make it every year from now on. Everyone who's tasted it raves about it, even my 3 kids who don't care all that much for peppermint...

This was a huge hit at work! I used white choco chips instead of vanilla chips.

This is really great candy. I don't know if I could classify it as fudge- because it is the texture of a chocolate bar. The flavor is great. I only used 1 cup of crushed candy canes. I added abo...

Made this for Christmas party & everyone LOVED it! It took 25 (+ or -) candy canes to get 1 1/2 c.; I put them inside a large ziplock bag before crushing them with a hammer (helpful hint :)). V...

This one was a hit at my house. I only had 1 cup of crushed candy canes on hand, and it turned out great (12 candy canes = 1 cup crushed). I almost think that 1-1/2 cups might have been too mu...

My husband helped me make this fudge--that's how eager he was to try it! It was worth his effort. I didn't add the food coloring, because I wanted white fudge. I also sprinkled an extra cup o...
