This Easy Peppermint Fudge is a hit every time I make it. It truly is the easiest fudge ever, too. To make and to eat. And to give to grandpas for gifts… If you’re not into peppermint, you can leave out the extract for plain fudge, or add in walnuts or other chopped nuts.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Easy Peppermint Fudge
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
- 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I like to use my homemade chocolate chunks)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I like to make my own)
- 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with aluminum foil. Set aside. Combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and milk. Mix well until butter is melted. Add extracts and mix well. Spread into prepared dish and cool in refrigerator until set (about 2 hours). Remove from dish by grabbing the foil and pulling up. Score and cut into small squares. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
