CANDY CANE FUDGE: National Candy Cane Day!

Tomorrow is National Candy Cane Day. Don't think of it as a day late -- think of it as the perfect holiday to make Candy Cane Fudge and use all those extra candy canes that you have left-over. I love Candy Cane Fudge. This recipe is so easy.


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

Line 9" pan with wax paper.
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.
Remove from heat; stir in peppermint extract, and half the crushed candy canes.
Spread evenly in prepared pan. Top with the rest of candy cane crumbs.
Chill 2 hours or until firm.
Remove from pan by lifting edges of wax paper.
Cut into squares.
