Candy Cane Fudge:

2 (10 oz. each) packages vanilla baking chips
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1 1/3 cups crushed peppermint candy canes
Red food coloring

Line an 8″ square pan with foil and grease foil well. Mix together the baking chips and sweetened condensed milk in a pan over medium heat. Continuously stir until melted and smooth. Stir in the extract, food coloring (add drops until desired color is reached), and crushed candy canes. Sprinkle with additional crushed candy canes if desired. Spread mixture in the pan, let cool completely and cut into squares.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Fudge:

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
4 squares unsweetened chocolate (melted)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 dash salt

Mix together cream cheese and sugar beating well. Slowly add chocolate. Stir in salt and vanilla. Add mix-in items (nuts, marshmallows, or crushed cookies, etc.) and spread into a foil lined and greased 8-inch square pan.

Both kinds are very yummy!
