It’s sort of a tradition & it definitely makes me happy to do it. So I’m up to my eyeballs in little squares of chocolate here. I have to admit- I’m in heaven really.
I spent the better part of my life associating Christmas with fudge. It was ever present & something I would look forward to all year long. It meant special times.
You see, my mom was known for her amazing fudge recipes & all our friends & the family would request some months in advance each year. I am so thankful that she taught me just how to make them all so that I can carry on her traditions through the holidays.
I hope to be passing them down to my kids when they get married so that they can continue the tradition with their families.
A good portion of my mom’s recipes are a little more in depth than this one. But she had a handful that is so simple that it’s almost silly to write out the recipe. I love that kind because they make great last minute gifts for taking around to the neighbors.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Where can I find pre-crushed candy canes?
I bought mine online here. But I have occasionally found them at specialty stores. Or you can just buy a bunch of regular candy canes and take out some of that holiday stress with a mallet. Just sayin’.
Can this recipe be doubled?
Absolutely. This recipe is easily doubled and that is a great option when it comes to a large family gathering or if you want to make one large batch and divide it up between the neighbors.
This recipe is actually perfect for doubling because the sweetened condensed milk comes in a 14oz can & this 1 batch recipe only calls for 6 ounces. Unless you buy the brand I linked to below.
