Makes (24 - 36) pieces
You will need
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
8 mini candy canes, crushed
Combine the milk, the chocolate and the 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. (If you aren't a fan of the microwave, you can easily melt the chocolate, milk and butter in a double boiler on the stove top.)
Add the extract and stir until smooth. Scoop onto a parchment lined tray. Spread with a spatula to approximately 1-inch thickness. Top with crushed candy canes. Chill until ready to serve. Slice into 1-inch squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
COOK’S NOTE: Measure peppermint extract very carefully. Do not measure the extract over the mixing bowl! If you add even a few drops too much, the flavor will change from "mint" to "toothpaste."
