White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge uses only 4 ingredients and takes just minutes to make. It's a quick and easy holiday treat that's perfect for sharing!
If you're looking for a quick and easy no-bake Christmas treat, you'll love this white chocolate peppermint fudge. There's no thermometer, no boiling, no endless stirring, and it only takes about 1 minute to cook in the microwave!
One of the best things about Christmastime is holiday baking. The kids and I set aside a day or two each December to make all of our favorite holiday desserts, and when we're all done, we're totally wiped out!
So, even though I love to bake cookies and other goodies for the holidays, I probably love quick and easy no-bake treats even more. What's even better is the kids can make a lot of these easy treats on their own and give them to their friends -- woot woot!
And you guys, this recipe for white chocolate fudge is one of the easiest holiday treats you can make. It's pretty close to our favorite chocolate peppermint fudge, only this is made with white chocolate, instead. Both of these easy fudge recipes are loaded with peppermint flavor, and they're both incredibly delicious!
So, I just posted a recipe for eggnog fudge, which is also completely delicious, by the way. But you do have to make it on the stove top, and there is quite a bit of stirring involved.
You can make this peppermint fudge in the microwave or on the stove. It's up to you. But, the microwave version only takes a minute to cook, so it's perfect if you're in a hurry or if your kids decide they want to pass out treats to their friends and teachers at the last minute. Just saying.
Basically, you only need 4 ingredients to make this white chocolate peppermint fudge, but I like to go a little further and top it with peppermint candies. Otherwise, it would look rather plain, not to mention the extra burst of peppermint you get from the candies.
This time, I used a combination of crunchy peppermint bits and soft peppermint bits. You should be able to find both of these in the baking aisle of your local store. If not, either will work, but the combo of soft and hard candies really adds to the texture.
Tips for Making Easy White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

- Don't overcook the chocolate -- Melt the chocolate in short increments for best results
- You can also melt the chocolate over low heat on the stove

what is the consistency of the fudge when done? Does it stay somewhat soft?
It's soft, but not as soft as fudge made with marshmallow creme.
Made these for a friend, they taste great! Love how you can taste some of the white chocolate, and the peppermint taste is amazing. Had to cool them in the freezer for a bit as where I live it's summer, and they were gooey inside, but after a while, it made the best Christmas treat!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you liked the fudge!

If I wanted to do a double decker fudge what other fudge flavor would you pair with this?
I would probably do a chocolate layer -- either milk chocolate or semi-sweet.

I'm looking forward to making this as part of a Christmas dessert platter, and I'm wondering how far in advance I could make these and still have them be a good texture. Any thoughts?
If you keep it wrapped or covered, it should be fine for a few days. 🙂
This is the BEST fudge I have ever eaten!! It’s so tasty and full of peppermint flavor. I’ll definitely be making it again!!
Thank you SO much, Kiley! I'm glad you like it!
Do you allow to cool at room temperature or do you place in the refrigerator?
I usually let it cool in the fridge, but it depends on how warm your house is. It's warm here, so it takes longer to cool on the counter.
