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!

Yield: 64 pieces

Peppermint Fudge

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes

Creamy Peppermint Fudge topped with marshmallow and candy canes.


  • 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


  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!

  1. I have been looking for this recipe for 3 years now! I had written it down because it was so amazing and then i lost it. I finally found it and I cannot wait to go get the ingredients as soon as it isnt 115° outside ♡ my husband will be beyond thrilled. This fudge is perfectly smooth with the crunchy topping. Thank you X1000

  2. I had to let you know that I love this recipe. I’ve made it a few years now and I am very happy to report the Andes Peppermint Crunch is available through Amazon now. SCORE! My grocery stores in Texas do not stock it and Target is ALWAYS sold out. Last year, I spent three hours opening and chopping…NOT a good idea. LOL.

    Everyone loves the fudge and it’s a big hit for something sweet after all the savory Christmas eats.

    Merry Christmas,
