Easy Candy Cane Fudge Recipe in Four Steps

I’m going to be honest – I’m not the biggest fan of candy canes by themselves.

However, I will make an exception when candy canes are put in things.

Things like this easy fudge! Let me tell you everything about this candy cane fudge recipe.

First of all, I already said it was easy – and I truly mean that. “Easy” means you are mixing a few ingredients and no baking (just a little microwaving). Second, the base is perfect for customizing.

With the white chocolate chips and condensed milk . . . you just need to add something else on top to make it your own (think Oreos, Fruity Pebbles, dried fruit, etc). And third – it’s just tasty. Try it . . . you’ll see.

Candy Cane Fudge

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a heat safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30 second increments in the microwave.
  2. When the contents are completely smooth, add the can of sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Immediately pour into a lined (with foil or parchment) 8 x 8 dish.
  4. Crush the candy canes to the consistency you prefer. I like to leave a few big pieces and then crush other pieces into a powder. Sprinkle on top of the fudge mixture and then refrigerate until completely set, about an hour or two.
  5. To serve, you can lift the entire block of fudge out of the dish by using the foil or the parchment sides. Peel back the sides and cut into squares.

Does this recipe need to be stored in fridge? Lookng to put in gift bags, if it doesn't.

Hi Lynn! It's solid enough to gift. I recommend pulling it out of the fridge the morning you gift it and placing it bags. Just because if I'm handling fudge the fingers can melt it, so it helps to have it cold. I also just happen to like fudge cold :D
