The quality of the chocolate is everything here; invest in the best, such as Lindt.


  • 500 g best-quality white chocolate, chopped, about 3 1/2 cups

  • 300-mL can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

  • 1 cup crushed red peppermint candies


  • LINE bottom and sides of an 8 × 8-in. baking pan with overlapping pieces of plastic wrap.

  • COMBINE chocolate with milk in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring halfway through, until chocolate is almost melted, 3 to 4 min. Remove and stir in peppermint until smooth. Scrape mixture into prepared pan and press down, smoothing top.

  • SIFT crushed candy to remove finely ground pieces. Sprinkle coarse pieces of crushed candy over fudge.

  • FOLD overhanging ends of plastic wrap over fudge to completely cover. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Fudge keeps well, refrigerated, up to 1 week.
