Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge - Gluten Free

This is the best fudge I have ever eaten.  It is also the easiest fudge to make.  I love the combo of peppermint and chocolate.  This Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge will definitely be one of my baking gifts this Christmas.  Thank you to Barefeet in the Kitchen for this wonderful recipe!

Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge
We just watched A Christmas Story, which is one of my favorite Christmas movies.  If you have seen it, you know the part when Ralph is helping his Dad change the tire and knocks all the bolts out in the dark snow and he says, "oh, fudge!"  Well, every time I eat this Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge it makes me say, "Oh, fudge"  but in a good way!  Watch your favorite Christmas movie and enjoy some Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge too!

2 cups semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1/8 tsp. peppermint extract
2 cups mini marshmallows
6 miniature candy canes or 1 large, crushed

Combine the sweetened condensed milk, the chocolate and butter in a medium size glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 90 seconds.  Stir to combine and heat another 15 seconds if needed.

Stir until smooth.  Stir in the extract (careful not to pour more than the 1/8 tsp., as it will be too minty).  Pour into well-greased pan (8x10 is what was used).  Top with crushed candy canes.  Chill until ready to serve.  Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
