Peppermint Microwave Fudge

Peppermint Microwave Fudge is as easy as the original with a fun added peppermint taste perfect for the holidays!


  • 1 1/2 bags of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2 candy canes
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract optional


  • Crush candy canes. (I use a ziplock bag and a doughpin)
  • Put all ingredients except crushed candy canes in a large microwave bowl. Be sure to cut the butter into smaller sections so it melts as quickly as the chocolate.
  • Cook it up in the microwave until it's melted, stirring every 30 seconds or so. The amount of time this takes can vary, so watch for your chocolate to be smooth.
  • When melted, remove from microwave (careful not to burn yourself!)
  • Pour into a greased 8 by 8 pan.
  • Top with crushed candy canes.
