White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge


I was excited when this month's Crazy Cooking Challenge was for Fudge!!! We haven't made fudge in a while and I really wanted to find a good recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge and I found a great one by Mindika's Moments.  I liked this one because it had an unexpected ingredient - cream cheese!  I haven't ever used cream cheese in any fudge recipe before so I was so curious how it would turn out.  Well this is a fantastic recipe.  It's very easy to put together and it's really delicious.  We tweaked the recipe a little bit to suit the ingredients we had on hand, mostly we changed the quantities of ingredients but kept the recipe as similar as possible. 

Ingredients:

1 cup  cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/4 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 cup candy canes, crushed

Preparation:

Line an 8x8 square pan with wax paper and set aside.  With a hand mixer beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar (1 cup at a time) and peppermint extract until smooth.   Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave in 30 second increments until melted and smooth.  Add white chocolate to cream cheese mixture, combine with a wooden spoon.  Next add in crushed candy canes, reserving about 2 tablespoons to sprinkle on top).  Stir candy canes into fudge mixture until combined well.  Pour fudge into prepared square pan and smooth with a knife.  Sprinkle the reserved crushed candy canes on top.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and then slice and serve!!
