Double chocolate peppermint fudge

Double chocolate peppermint fudge – one of the best seasonal treats ever! These festive fudge bites are rich and decadent, perfect edible gift to share with friends.

These little bites have all things sweet: white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, marshmallows and candy canes! Man, I told you they're indulgent, and make perfect edible gift. There is no way you can eat the whole batch by yourself.

The recipe is pretty straightforward and foolproof. But one thing to keep in mind is that you need to hurry between the step 7 and 8, because you want to pour white chocolate layer over dark chocolate layer before it sets.

And, yes, that's an extra step. But for that beautiful swirled look, we can do that, right? I admit it, I'm sucker for pretty things. And swirlsaremything!


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, for pan
  • 1-2 peppermint candy canes
  • 2 cups (120gr) mini marshmallows
  • 1 can (14oz/400gr) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6oz (170gr) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 6oz (170gr) white chocolate, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract


  1. Line 8x8in (20x20cm) baking pan with foil and butter the bottom and sides of the pan.
  2. Place the peppermint candy canes in a ziplock bag and crush the candies with a rolling pin.
  3. In a double boiler, combine marshmallows, condensed milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Melt everything over simmering water, stirring frequently, until smooth, about 10 minutes.
  5. When the mixture is nice and smooth, pour half of the mixture into heat-proof bowl and add chopped white chocolate.
  6. Return the marshmallow mixture back on the double boiler, add chopped bittersweet chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  7. Pour the most of the dark chocolate mixture into the prepared pan, reserving a few tablespoonfuls.
  8. Now, quickly put the marshmallow mixture with white chocolate on the double boiler, add peppermint extract and stir until the white chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  9. Pour the white chocolate mixture over dark chocolate fudge.
  10. Then drop the reserved dark chocolate mixture on white chocolate mixture.
  11. And using a toothpick, swirl the mixture to create beautiful swirled effect.
  12. Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy canes on top.
  13. Let the fudge cool and set for few hours, or overnight. Cut into small pieces and serve.
