Candy Cane Fudge

Everyone enjoys fudge, especially around the holidays, so I created this easy recipe. Store it in the refrigerator for a refreshingly cool treat.—Vicki VanValkenburg, Demorest, Georgia
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    about 1-3/4 pounds


  • 1 teaspoon plus 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 39 miniature candy canes, crushed (about 1 cup)
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk, divided
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Line an 8-in. square pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle with half of the crushed candy; set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in 2/3 cup milk. Carefully pour over candy layer in prepared pan. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine white baking chocolate and remaining butter. Microwave on high for 40-50 seconds; stir until smooth. Stir in the cream of tartar, remaining milk and candy. Spread over chocolate layer.

    This looks great and I"ll bet it is. I am going to try this. I read some of the reviews and for the person who said that theirs turned out liquid and didn't set. I think that maybe you might have added "milk". Real milk that is. When I read the recipe above there was a part that said to add milk but there is no milk in the ingredients list. Just the sweetened condensed milk. Other than that the recipe looks good. I've made fudge with just semi sweet chocolate and the sweetened condensed milk before and it works great. Hope this helps.

    Why don't people read the recipe before getting worked up that it doesn't look right. Recipe clearly states to add remaining candy to the white chocolate (step #3).

    Question: The photo illustration does not seem to match the recipe--looks like there is candy in the white layer. And I'm assuming they are served upside down, right?Also, would tinamarie explain how she got fresh strawberries to work in this recipe? (I love S-B's and chocolate)Thanks so much.

    This is a new family favorite! I made these as part of an assortment of cookies and candies given as gifts this year. They look so festive and the flavor is outstanding. We'll definitely be making these again...only we'll keep some for ourselves next time!
