For the past two weeks I have been slowly sneaking in Christmas decorations into our house. First, I bought new Christmas stockings and because, duh, it seemed ridiculous to pack them in the garage only to pull them out a month later, I hung them up.

Next I found myself buying a couple items for my desk area, you know, to get me in the holiday spirit. I hung up a sled on the wall, bought candy canes, and then next thing I knew I was making Practically Perfect Peppermint Fudge.

Y’all! This is the BEST time of the year! I am so in the Christmas spirit and I know that Thanksgiving isn’t until next week but I just.can’t.help.it.

Last week we picked up Operation Christmas Child boxes at our church and the boys and I had so much fun shopping and filling eleven boxes this year – a new record for us! We also hit IKEA hard for Operation Bear Hug at school and the boys brought in ten new stuffed animals of the drive. Best part? Bryce told me that it makes his heart feel good when he does things for other people. << That is the Christmas spirit I’m talking about.

More than anything I wish I could make up a batch of this fudge and ship it off to each one of my loyal readers – you know who you are! This fudge just screams Christmas and tastes just like it.

I am such a HUGE fan of fudge (check out all these great recipes!) and peppermint too! They are a match made in heaven!

This is an easy fudge recipe (chocolate + sweetened condensed milk) and with the addition of crushed candy canes and peppermint extract, it’s truly exploding with the perfect peppermint flavor.

  1. This may seem weird, but we don’t have a microwave – by choice! Haha. Would I be able to just heat the chocolate and milk on the stovetop?

  2. Could I use peppermint essential oil instead of extract?

  3. Could I use regular semi sweet Chocolate chips? I am not a big fan of white chocolate.

  4. Do I need the peppermint extract or would it be alright without it? Would just the candy canes still give it a peppermint zest?

    • If you don’t have any Laura, you can omit it entirely or substitute vanilla extract. I really like the flavor it adds to the fudge though. The candy canes will definitely give it “some” peppermint flavor but just not as much as with the extract. Have a great week!

  5. Does it need to stay refrigerated after it’s cut up? I just made it…it’s delicious and my contribution to the upcoming cookie exchange! Thanks!

  6. I made this yesterday and kept it in the fridge overnight but it is still very runny and liquidy. Any idea what went wrong?

    • It shouldn’t be runny – at all. In fact, it sets up so quick it can be cut in about 30 minutes just left at room temperature. Sounds like you didn’t use enough baking chips or too much sweetened condensed milk. I would check your measurements. Good luck!

  7. I don’t have non-stick foil, should I use regular foil or parchment paper?

  8. My chocolate mixture was pretty thick. I heated it only for a min and a half in 30 sec increments. Could it be overcooked or is it normally this thick?
