Double Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge

Photobucket



I don't know about you, but I am feeling very overwhelmed this December. Maybe it's because I'm volunteering at school, so I am not home as often as I use to be. Maybe it's because we are headed to my Mother in law's for Christmas and are leaving in less than a week. What ever the reason, it's causing me great stress and anxiety. So much so, that I recently had what I like to refer to as a Clark Griswold moment. I want everyone to have a wonderful Christmas and I often feel like I'm the one doing all the work. I'm trying to keep it together in the next few days, as I attempt to finish up my Christmas baking.

Finding super easy recipes like this helps a lot. This literally takes about 10 minutes to throw together. Melt both chocolates with condensed milk, add in some goodies and voila. You get a pretty and really delicious fudge. The kids LOVE this fudge and were happy to eat the scraps that I cut off, from the outside, to make nice straight edges. I have to admit is pretty darn tasty, which means a lot coming from me, since I'm usually not a fan of mint and chocolate. The inspiration for this fudge came from KraftCanada.com, I just changed it up a bit.

1/4 C crushed candy canes, plus some for garnish
Kelley green food colour gel from Wilton (or green food colouring) 

Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, with ends extending over sides. Microwave semi sweet chocolate and 2/3 cup milk in medium microwaveable bowl on medium power for 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min.; stir until completely melted.
