Peppermint Fudge

Hi Everyone,

Day # 5 of Christmas Cookies

Today I am not featuring a cookie but a great addition to the cookie tray- Peppermint Fudge ….

This is always a requested addition to the Holiday cookie tray and this recipe was given to me by my dear friend, Elise Feiner who is an excellent chef and baker.

What can I say, there is no such thing as too much chocolate and you always need something peppermint for Christmas.

PS- Big “thank you” to my Cousin Frank DeVito for his handcrafted Christmas Tree board- he is so talented and I will treasure this gift always…

Peppermint Fudge


  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, about 1 ½ cups
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup candy cane crunch
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Combine the chocolate chips, milk, and marshmallows in a medium size saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir frequently as the chocolate melts. Add the candy cane crunch and vanilla. Stir to combine
  • Remove from the heat
  • Lightly grease a 10-inch square pan or line with parchment.
  • Pour the fudge into the pan and spread with a spatula.
  • (optional- I decorated with additional candy cane pieces)
  • Chill in the refrigerator until firm
  • Slice into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator

Cook’s Note: This fudge can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer for several months. Thaw in the refrigerator when ready to serve.


Until my next post, make every day a celebration!

Stay well,
