I’ve always been something of a fudge purist – maybe that was because growing up, my grandmother made the absolute best chocolate peanut butter fudge – a version that I made myself sick on one Christmas because I ate the entire batch myself and didn’t eat any healthy food to balance things out.

Her recipes, of course, involved a candy thermometer…but were totally worth the extra work.

This peppermint swirled fudge is just about as good.

And even better – this version is super duper simple.  I don’t know about you, but I need E-A-S-Y right now.  With just over a week until Christmas and about a million things left to do, I am all about fast and no-fuss recipes!

For this homemade fudge, you need only four ingredients: white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, and Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips {I found mine at Walmart in the baking aisle}.  Trust me – if you like peppermint, you need these! ;-)

Doodle loves tossing some of the peppermint chips into his mug of hot chocolate, and I’ve been known to flavor my coffee with ‘em.  But in this fudge?  It’s just the perfect amount of peppermint flavoring and crunch.

I’d love to know: Do you make fudge using a candy thermometer?  If so, what’s your favorite flavor?

Peppermint Swirled Fudge

Ingredients

  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2/3 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips, plus more for topping

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on two sides. Spray lightly with baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk over medium-high heat. Stir constantly, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in peppermint extract and peppermint chips. The peppermint chips will melt quickly and give your fudge a pretty light pink swirled effect.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared pan, and sprinkle with additional peppermint chips if desired. Chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours, or until set. Keep stored in the refrigerator for one week.
