Not sure what it's like at your place over the holidays, but here the house is constantly full of treats. I didn't even bake that much this year and it was still treat overload. We would just get through a tray of something and a new load of goodies would show up. It was amazing, but getting back on a schedule where I don't eat a baked good every 45 minutes is better for me, I think.

As there were too many goodies over the holidays, I waited until our recent gaming night to make some Christmas fudge. The main flavour is soft mint and boy did these go down smooth. The mint drowns out the sweet so it was really easy to eat a lot of this in a row. 

This recipe was adapted from white chocolate peppermint fudge recipes found at On Sugar Mountain and Alida's Kitchen.

Ingredients:
3 cups white chocolate chips (2 - 226g bags)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk (300 ml)
1/4 cup butter, cut into chunks
4 candy canes, crushed (makes about 1/3 cup)
1.5 tsp peppermint extract
green and red food colouring

Method (in photos):

Crush candy canes and set aside.

Combine white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until all is melted together. Remove from heat and add mint extract.

Quickly pour 1/3 of the fudge into prepared 8x8 pan, and divide remaining between two bowls. Colour the fudge in the bowls green and red. 


Pour green fudge over the white fudge in prepared pan and spread to cover. Add red fudge over green fudge and spread out evenly.


Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and press gently to adhere them to the fudge.


Chill for 24 hours and then take a number of art shots of your fudge!





These would make a great gift in about 11 months. For now that are just so lovely to snack on.

    3. I got some deal ones too. Yesterday I was out and had to hold myself back from buying a gingerbread house kit for $2.50. They are $12 in December.
