This Candy Cane Fudge recipe is incredible! Creamy, smooth and loaded with candy cane flavour! A must make Holiday Treat.
Candy Cane Fudge recipe starts with making candy cane sugar by simply grinding candy canes into a fine sugar. The candy cane sugar replaces some of the granulated sugar for exceptional candy cane flavour! I use pink/red coloured, cherry flavoured candy canes as they taste great and add a beautiful pink colour to the fudge.
Everyone enjoys fudge, especially during the Holiday season. This easy to make Candy Cane Fudge is the perfect Holiday treat or homemade gift. I buy beautiful decorative tins to fill with fudge for great hostess, office and last minutes gifts. Homemade treats are always a hit!
