Double Chocolate Peppermint Fudge!. That sentence is heaven on a plate and as soon as I saw it, I new I had to make it and I am so glad I did.
For so long I have always been wanting to make fudge but never have, think it was a long difficult process. However, I was so wrong and I am finally glad that I decided to give it go and plan to make lots more in the future.
Now before I start my ever so tasty journey I will mentioned that this is going to be a short blog. Mainly because it is easy to make and takes no time at all, but that’s a good thing because around Christmas time it means you can make different flavours and give them as Christmas gifts.
The recipe I followed was from a website called hotchocolatehits, and I am so glad I used it. Below you will find a recipe card I made so you can make it to, just in time for Christmas.
So before making the recipe or any recipe even you need to have all your ingredients. So for this recipe you needed to types of chocolate both white and milk or dark. Now the brand of chocolate you use is completely up to you, there is no point making the fudge with chocolate you don’t like, that’s just stupid. Me personal I used milky bar and cadbury’s my faves.
For the toppings I used After Eight mints and peppermint candy canes. Again you don’t have to use these exactly but something similar would be good. Any chocolate mint and peppermint sweet. Once you have your toppings you can chop up the chocolate mints and crush the candy canes so you have them ready. It is best to do this first as the chocolate mixture can set quickly so you need to add the toppings straight away.
As I said earlier this recipe is super simple and easy to do. All you have to do is add half of the can of condensed milk to the milk chocolate and the other half to the white. Then starting with the milk chocolate, place the bowl into the microwave and melt, stopping every 30 seconds to mix and make sure it doesn’t burn.
Once it’s melted the mixture will have thickened, spread this mixture into a prepared tin and place into the fridge while melting the white chocolate.
Spread the now melted chocolate onto the chocolate layer until it’s even. I found this easier to do when I placed the mixture into four sections and spread it out. (I didn’t do this with the milk chocolate layer and I wish I did, it was hard to spread out).
The final part to this recipe is to add the topping and this was simple because the toppings where prepared and all that was need to to was add the toppings on top and press down softly to make sure they are stuck into the fudge.
Now you place the fudge into the fridge and wait for about 2-3 hours sadly for it to set completely.
Once set all you need to do is cut the fudge into pieces. I decided to cut small pieces because fudge can be filling and I wanted to have quite a bit to share out, but you can cut yours into any size you want.
To add a little extra I cut out squares from greaseproof paper and wrapped each piece of fudge into them, this makes it good to give as a gift for Christmas.
So there you have it my super easy and oh so tasty Double Chocolate Peppermint Fudge just in time for Christmas.
