  • Combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave safe bowl.
  • Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir everything together as much as you can.
  • Microwave for another 30 seconds, if needed, until you can stir the mixture till creamy.
  • Add int he peppermint extract and stir again.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into a 9x9in baking dish lined with parchment paper, and smooth with a rubber spatula.
  • Sprinkle crushed candy cane pieces over the top of the fudge and press into the fudge.
