I saw this on a recent holiday episode of the Pioneer Woman. This would be a great recipe to make with children. It's simple, easy and the kids would love it! You could come up with alternative toppings such as holiday sprinkles, chopped nuts, chopped candy bars, miniature marshmallows etc.!
Cooking spray, for spraying foil
3 C semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14oz.) sweetened condensed milk
Red peppermint candies, crushed, for topping
Line an 8-by-8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil hanging over the edges. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, or in a double boiler, combine the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk and stir until it's all melted and smooth. Pour it into the prepared pan and spread to even out the surface. Sprinkle on the crushed candies. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Lift the foil out of the pan and peel off the fudge. Cut into small squares.
Peace in the Kitchen!
