Candy Cane Fudge: National Candy Cane Day

Today is National Candy Cane Day, and since I have a lot of chocolate and candy canes left over, I decided to make more fudge -- Candy Cane Fudge.


18 oz. dark chocolate  (60-75% cacao), chopped
1-14 oz. can  sweetened condensed milk
Dash of salt
1 tsp peppermint extract
4 peppermint candy canes, crushed

1. Line 9" pan with wax paper.
2. Melt chocolate with sweetened condensed milk and salt in heavy saucepan over another saucepan with simmering water (or in top of double boiler). Stir until melted.
3. Remove from heat; stir in peppermint extract, and half the crushed candy canes.
4. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Top with the rest of candy cane crumbs.
5. Chill 2 hours or until firm.
6. Remove from pan by lifting edges of wax paper.
7. Cut into squares.
