Candy canes and chocolate = match made it H.E.A.V.E.N. This is my favorite and majorly addictive fudge recipe topped off with candy canes. Perfect balance of rich, creamy chocolate and a seasonal staple…peppermint. Bring candy cane fudge to a holiday party, or make a whole pan for yourself 😉 I won’t judge.
I am going home for Christmas in 13 days!!!!
Minnesota, I miss you.
Blah blah, I love it here in NYC, duh. But I miss my family and close friends. Dogs. Riding in cars. Minnesota accents. Snow.
I’ve been in NYC for a cool 2 months now. Even though it actually feels much longer than that.
I’m cruising thru level 2 in culinary school now. Tonight I have class, and we have an exciting lesson.
Basically we cook about 10 different egg recipes. We learn a large amount of basic egg dishes.
After egg day, pretty much the rest of level 2 is desserts.
I clearly love desserts…SO, I’m pumped.
Speaking of desserts…here’s another dessert blog post!!
I’m such a fudge person 😀
Is that even a thing?
I love fudge SO much that I asked for it as a christmas present one year from my favorite fudge shop in northern Minnesota…and this was when I was in high school.
I mean, who does that?
Fudge is always on my holiday baking list! Along with sugar cookie cut outs and peanut butter blossoms.
My grandma always made the best fudge – creamy, milky, smooth and rich!!
I don’t like my fudge too dark. I prefer it with more milk.
Last year when I made this fudge, I had the genius idea of adding candy canes to the top.
I didn’t mix the candy canes into the fudge, but rather I sprinkled a generous amount on top.
OHHHH my goodness, it was amazing.
Sure i’m not the only one to add candy cane to fudge…but this particular combo is killer.
And who better to get a recipe from, then yours truly?!
I’m very particular with the things I like, and the things I don’t.
I guess any great chef is very opinionated about their food preferences.
Are you ready for the recipe….
I’ll give you the link just after I tell you about the candy cane top.
Make the fudge as directed in the link. Right after you put the hot fudge into the pan, evenly sprinkle 1 box of crushed (12 regular sized) candy canes. I suggest crushing the candy canes before making the fudge, so it is ready to go when you need it.
Ok, here is the fudge recipe. Omit the nuts. And use 12 0z of your favorite baking chocolate.
So simple right?!
Hope you enjoy this one 🙂
Thanks so much for visiting LEFT SIDE OF THE TABLE today. I love sharing food with you.
