Easy Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge

Easy Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge

Ohhhhh …. chocolate fudge.

It makes me happy all year long and is super easy to make. I especially enjoy it around the holidays when I play with the flavors and give it as gifts. This treat with peppermint candy canes added has a festive flavor and looks pretty.

Candy Cane Fudge


1 Pkg. Chocolate Chips (10 ounces)
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 ounces)
1/2 cup Candy Canes, Crushed


Combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in flat bottomed sauce pan.

Cook on low heat. Stir occasionally at first and more frequently as chocolate begins to melt.

When mixture is smooth and creamy, stir in half of the crushed candy canes.

Pour fudge into an 8″x8″ baking (non-stick or with a light coat of cooking spray).

Top with remaining crushed candy canes. Press down lightly with your hand or the back of a spoon to stick them to the fudge.

Chill in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to set.

Slice and serve or package it up to give as gifts.


To crush the candy canes, I place them in a zipper bag and then gently hit them with a hammer. I like to crush some to a fine powder and leave some as chunks.

    I made this with candy canes from the after-Christmas sale. It was so easy to make and as good as it looks in your picture!

    I’ve never made fudge before because it intimidates me a little, but this looks super easy! I’m always looking for new holiday recipes and my older son absolutely loves candy canes! I will be making this for him this year.
