Choc-peppermint holiday fudge

by possandruby

This choc-peppermint fudge is a great gift for the friend or family member who has everything. Like most people every Christmas it gets harder and harder to choose gifts. So a handmade gift is a thoughtful and useful solution and is always greatly appreciated. This choc-peppermint fudge recipe is quick and easy to prepare and can be enjoyed with a hot chocolate or mulled wine for a full festive experience. You can wrap it as individual bites and place in a festive box or tin.


1 tin condensed milk

1 packet (290g) dark chocolate melts

1 teaspoon peppermint essence

Sprinkles to decorate


Melt the chocolate and condensed milk together on a low heat using a double boiler. (A double boiler is a saucepan or bowl set over another saucepan containing a small amount of water that is brought to the boil. Note that the bowl or saucepan on top should never touch the water in the bottom pan.)

Add the peppermint essence and stir thoroughly until smooth.  Once all the chocolate has melted, quickly pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. 

Shake the sprinkles on top to decorate and place the fudge in the fridge overnight to set. Remove the fudge from the tin and cut into small squares.

Packaging tip: For individual treats, wrap bite-sized pieces of the fudge in baking paper and place in a jar. Wrap larger blocks in baking paper then brown paper tied up with ribbon.
