Double Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge


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 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate
1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk, divided
1 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's White Chocolate
1/3 C candy cane flavoured Hershey Kisses, chopped
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. 
  Add chopped Hershey Kisses and mix well. Spread onto bottom of prepared pan.

Stir in 1/4 C crushed candy cane pieces and spread over first chocolate layer. Sprinkle with additional crushed candy cane pieces, gently pressing them into the fudge and refrigerate 2 hours. Use paper handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into pieces.

The holiday are so stressful! I have been busting it everyday and there is still a long list of things to do! I hope to be caught up soon. Your fudge looks wonderful. It is very close to a recipe I make and love. I will have to give this one a try.
