I am hosting Christmas Eve for my family this year, and have been looking for some good finger-food style desserts to serve. I ran across this post from CentsationalGirl.com with a great recipe for white chocolate mint fudge inspired me to give it a try with one small tweak…I decided to use crushed candy canes instead of the green icing. I thought it came out great. I love holiday treats that look as festive as they taste! This will definitely be made for my family holiday gathering.
White Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge
2.5 bags 11 oz. white chocolate chips
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
6 oz. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
6 crushed mini candy canes
Pour the white chocolate chips into a double boiler (heatsafe glass bowl over a saucepan with a little water in it works fine). The water should come to a boil, and then turn the heat to low. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir continuously to combine as the chips melt. Add cream cheese, sugar, and peppermint extract. Keep stirring 8-10 mins until everything is melted together and has a frosting-like consistency. Pour into an 8×8 pan, top with crushed candy canes, and allow to cool and solidify for 6 hours or overnight. Slice into cubes and enjoy!
