White Chocolate Mint Fudge

Easy-Peasy creamy, minty holiday fudge in 3 quick steps.

Ingredients:

  • 1 12 oz. package white chocolate chips*
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 c. crushed pistachios
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Method:

Line a 8-9 in. rectangular or square baking dish with wax paper, ensuring that the paper covers the edges of the pan.

Over medium heat, combine 1/2 of the sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips and stir while melting together. Add the remaining half of the milk  and chips, vanilla and mint extracts, salt.  Continue to stir until all ingredients are incorporated and mixture is smooth.

Pour the mixture into the lined dish, and spread evenly. Sprinkle the crushed pistachios on top. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. To cut, remove the fudge from the pan by lifting the wax paper out of the dish, remove the paper and slice into preferred portion sizes.

*For a ‘firmer’ fudge consistency, use 1 1/2 – 2 bags of white chocolate chips.
