Tips to Make Christmas fudge
- Making no-fail fudge is ridiculously easy. You’re just going to melt your semi-sweet chocolate chips with your sweetened condensed milk, then repeat with the white chocolate and fold in your peppermints. Pour in two layers to get that amazing double-layer deliciousness. No sour cream, no candy thermometer, no evaporated milk, just chocolate and sweetened condensed milk and peppermints.
- To make sure you can get your fudge out of the pan, the easiest thing is to use parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray. Pour your chocolate mixture into the prepared pan and let it set. It’s that easy. Do not, however line your pan with foil–it will stick to the fudge.
- When you cool your fudge, you can let it sit on the counter and set to room temperature or you can put it in the fridge and let it chill. Either will work, but the fridge is much faster.
- You can modify your two-layer fudge recipe to make this for any holiday season. Fun additions to make your holiday fudge a little unique:
- Peanut Butter (to make peanut butter fudge)
- Marshmallow Cream (or is it Marshmallow Creme?!)
- Dried Cranberries
- Red and Blue Sprinkles
