Yum! What a lovely, sweet and fresh confection! I used white chocolate instead of vanilla chips and a 9" pan. About 250 g of polkagrisar yielded the 1,5 c of crushed peppermint candy needed! Very good - will become a Christmas staple! Thank you NorthwestGal!
yum. tried it also with cinnamon extract b/c my hubby doesn't like peppermint - but that was no good - definitely better with peppermint so i will stick with the peppermint and anyone who doesn't like it doesn't get any! :D
This is pretty good fudge. I think it would have been better if I had used a better white chocolate. I used toll house chips. I also didn't have even 3/4 tsp peppermint and ended up using 1/2 which seemed perfect to me - not too much but enough to flavor it. I opted to leave out the food coloring.
Although I'm not a big fan of peppermint candy canes, that's what I used for this recipe, then sent it off with my other half to share at work ~ Big success, there, so I can't complain! AND, I'd so fascinated by the way it all turned out, that I'm now keeping an eye out for non-peppermint canes (I KNOW they're out there) to use in making another batch of this fudge ~ I definitely want to have it around for the winter holidays!
