How to Prepare Pioneer Woman Peppermint Fudge?
First, you have to collect three simple ingredients for the easy fudge recipe. Preparation is not a big deal but make sure you collect a 8×8 pan. Then, you have to cover the whole 8×8 pan using aluminum foil.
Other than collecting the ingredients, you don’t have to show any other exotic cooking skills. After cooking the fudge, you need to store it inside the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. And that’s the lengthy time for the chocolate fudge.
You have to crush the peppermint candy too. Use a plastic bag and put the candies inside the bag. Then, crush the peppermint candies using a small hammer. Don’t apply too much pressure into crushing the candies; otherwise, there will be a messy kitchen.
Other than that, you don’t have to break a sweat. Now, let’s have a look at the main ingredients for this easy recipe.
Ingredients that You Will Need Are:
You need the following ingredients to prepare the batter for your cake.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: We will be using 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips for a grainy texture. You can use chocolate chips but don’t go for too sweet ones. It’s because we will use condensed milk which will make your dessert sweet enough.
Condensed Milk: For our easy fudge recipe, we will be using 1 can (24 Oz.) of sweetened condensed milk. Mainly, condensed milk helps you maintain a smooth texture for your fudge. Not to mention, you will have a little problem with crystalizing your chocolate fudge.
Peppermint Candy: To add a little kick to the fudge, you better add 8-whole peppermint candy. You have to crush the candies so that the candies can blend with the fudge mixture.
Step by Step Instructions for Pioneer Woman Easy Fudge
Step 1: First line the square 8×8 pan using aluminum foil. Then, you have to make the surface of the pan smooth.
Step 2: Spray the pan with nonstick spray so that way the fudge won’t stick to the aluminum foil.
