Now, on to this fudge!

I used Andes Peppermint Baking Chips to give the bottom layer a creamy texture with peppermint flavor. Then, I went one more step and topped the fudge with some Mini Peppermint Marshmallows and White Candiquik…and some broken candy cane pieces!

Peppermint Fudge

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag (12oz) white chocolate morsels
  • 1 bag (10oz) Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips
  • 7oz jar marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 pkg (16oz) vanilla Candiquik, melted
  • 3 cup Mini Peppermint Marshmallows
  • 5 peppermint candy canes, broken

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add white chocolate morsels, Andes baking chips and marshmallow creme. Set aside.
  2. Prepare a 13x9 baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In medium saucepan, heat butter, heavy cream, sugar and salt over medium high heat. Bring to a boil and continue stirring. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour over morsels and marshmallow creme, beating with a whisk until smooth and melted. (I highly suggest using an electric stand or handheld mixer- this fudge is thick)! Pour fudge into prepared baking dish.
  5. Melt vanilla candiquik according to package directions. Allow to cool slightly (a couple minutes). Fold in mini marshmallows and pour over top of fudge. Immediately sprinkle with broken candy canes. Allow fudge to set, about 2-3 hours. Cute into bites and enjoy!

    I made this this afternoon and I too had the “problem” of the excess red liquid. I boiled the stuff for exactly 5 minutes as directed and used an electric mixer. It made a huge mess. I scooped the base layer out of the bowl so I avoided the majority of the liquid getting into the pan. I still had some but it did set up well and tastes great.

    Am wondering if you have to keep this refrigerated due to the heavy whipping cream? Thanks (:

    Made this last night for gift giving. It came out perfect. So rich and yummy… Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. Merry Christmas!

    Would love to make this fudge – need to think of some substitutions as a couple of the ingredients are not available in South Africa, i.e.
    1 bag (12oz) white chocolate morsels
    1 bag (10oz) Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips
    7oz jar marshmallow creme
    1 pkg (16oz) vanilla Candiquik, melted
    3 cup Mini Peppermint Marshmallows

    So sad… we live in Australia and cant get most of these ingredients. Boo hoo. ๐Ÿ™ It looks beautiful.

    I made this fudge tonight, and it is wonderful. Easy and delicious! I’m giving part of it to my daughter tomorrow for Valentine’s Day. I placed it in a white box with red tissue paper, and it’s so pretty. Thanks for sharing your recipe Aimee. It’s a keeper!

    Hi, Just found this site and recipe. Would this fudge work to pour into the silicone brownie bites mold? I have a cookie exchange that I’ll need to make 144 treats for and would like to make my life simple.

    Also, what makes the fudge pink? is there food coloring involved?

    I’ve tried this fudge twice, and both times the white morsels “seized” because the mixture is too hot. How do you get your morsels not to seize?

    So pretty with that marshmallow topping! Yum and thank you!

    So forgot candi quick, so instead I scattered and pressed mini peppermint marshmallows and the crushed peppermint candies into the top of the freshly poured fudge. Pretty to look at and delicious! Not too sweet and peppermint taste was not over the top. Amazing recipe. Definitely a keeper.
