Easy Peasy Candy Cane Fudge

This is probably one of the easiest fudge recipes ever. I have been making it for the past few years and people always love it and request the recipe and then are shocked at how simple it is! I promise if you give it a try, you won't be disappointed. 

What You Need:
1 bag of white chocolate chips
1 container of whipped white/vanilla icing
1-2 TBSP mint extract (depending on how minty you like things)
1 tsp shortening
Red Food Coloring
About 12 mini candy canes crushed or 4-6 regular sized 

How to Make It:
1. Over medium heat begin to melt the white chocolate chips stirring continually. As they begin to melt, add in the entire container of frosting, the shortening, and the mint extract. Continue stirring until it's all melted and combined. 
2. Spray a dish with cooking spray and pour the fudge in the dish. Put a couple of drops of the red food coloring in different spots randomly and then use a knife to pull the red food coloring across the white fudge to create a swirly look. 
3. Put your candy canes in a ziploc bag and crush them up. (I give this job to Noah sometimes and let him beat them with a wooden spoon. He's the best candy cane crusher I know!) Pour the crushed candy canes on top of the fudge, pop it in the fridge for a few hours and let it set. 

Then you are ready to cut it up and enjoy!!
