Quick & Easy Christmas Candy Cane Fudge

Candy canes are an essential part of Christmas. They have been on every tree, every year for as long as I can remember. The day after Christmas, they all get chucked in the trash. But not this year. The day after Christmas is National Candy Cane day, and at my house- we will be making this delicious Candy Cane Fudge!
This fudge takes less than 5 minutes and is a great way to use up all those extra candy canes!
