Peppermint Crunch Fudge
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
- 28 Nestle Crunch Bar Minis
- 3 cups Nestle Toll House Bittersweet Chocolate Morsels (chocolate chips)
- 1 can (14 ounces) Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
- 1/4 cup crushed candy canes (or peppermint discs), divided in half
Line 9-by-9-inch pan with foil, hanging over the sides of the pan to create a sling, then spray with cooking spray. Place candy bars in even layer on the bottom of pan.
Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and peppermint extract in medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until chips and milk are melted together. Mix in two tablespoons crushed candy canes.
Once everything is melted together, spread evenly over bars in prepared pan. Immediately sprinkle with remaining crushed candy canes, pressing lightly into fudge. Cool until firm, then cover with plastic and place in refrigerator to harden completely. Use the foil sling to remove the hardened fudge from the pan, then cut into squares and serve.
