White Chocolate Oreo Peppermint Fudge

PEPPERMINT OREO FUDGE

This easy fudge recipe is great for the holidays. You can put out a tray at your next family get-together, or wrap up some as an edible gift. The Oreo cookies make the fudge especially kid-friendly, while the white chocolate and peppermint make it a seasonal delight. Have a few pieces with a cup of Homemade Hot Chocolate for the perfect Christmas Eve treat to share with your family. 

If you want to give fudge as a holiday gift, be sure to separate the pieces with parchment paper in your package. That way none of the candies will stick together. You could even wrap each piece of fudge in an individual piece of wax paper and tie it with a ribbon for a cute, homemade candy wrapper. 

If you’ve never made fudge yourself, then you may be thinking it’s more complicated than it really is. The basics of fudge making is just a matter of combining chocolate and sweetened condensed milk over heat. Just add in a few more ingredients for flavoring, beat it all together while it cools, then put it in the fridge to harden. It’s as simple as that!

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT FUDGE

The hardest part about cooking fudge is bringing the chocolate and condensed milk mixture to the right temperature. Under cooking the mixture will make fudge that doesn’t set well. On the other hand over-cooking will make dry crumbly fudge. 

To avoid any guess work use a candy thermometer. Add the chocolate chips and condensed milk to your saucepan over low heat. As you stir the mixture, test the temperature using a candy thermometer. The ideal temperature to bring the fudge to is about 235 degrees F.

Once you’ve heated the fudge to the right temperature, it’s time to start adding the other ingredients. Turn off the heat and stir in the peppermint extract. Mix in your peppermint candies and Oreos as the mixture cools. Then all that’s left to do is add the fudge to your dish, sprinkle the rest of the Oreos and peppermint over the top, and let it set in the fridge.

VARIATIONS ON PEPPERMINT OREO FUDGE

  • Chocolate Fudge: If you’d like to make a more classic chocolate fudge, use semisweet chocolate chips instead of the white chocolate chips. You could also try milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips depending on how deep of a chocolate flavor you want the fudge to have. 
  • Oreos: You can easily change up this recipe depending on what kind of Oreo cookies you use. Vanilla Oreos, double chocolate Oreos, red velvet Oreos, or seasonal Oreos with red filling could all make a fun change.
  • Vegan: To make your Peppermint Oreo Fudge Vegan swap out the sweetened condensed milk and the white chocolate chips. Instead of the milk you can use condensed coconut milk, and you should be able to find a dairy-free white chocolate at your grocery store. 
  • Toppings and Add-ins: There are lots of ways you can experiment to make this recipe fit with different holidays depending on what add-ins you use. Try mixing in nuts, mini chocolate chips, or marshmallows. You can also decorate the fudge by drizzling melted chocolate over the top or adding sprinkles.
  • Food Coloring: To add to the candy cane theme of this fudge, try swirling in some red food coloring with the white chocolate for a more festive look.

  1. My 21 year old, who doesn’t like white chocolate, called this fudge “dangerous” to keep in the house. So good! Thank you for the recipe.
