Double chocolate peppermint fudge - one of the best seasonal treats ever! These festive fudge bites are decadent and meant to be shared.

I’m so, so excited to share this festive double chocolate peppermint fudge recipe with you. This fudge is so rich, and chocolate-y, and delicious! I’m drooling as I type this…

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.

What makes this fudge so special?

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 swirls are my thing! 🙂


Oh and those crushed peppermint candy canes are just an icing on the cake fudge.

Quick question… Have you ever wondered if those sharp candies are actually edible with soft baked goods? I always wondered about that myself. They seem so sharp, you know? But let me tell you, they’re not only edible, they actually add nice texture to each bite, and not as razor sharp as they look!

Did I convince you to make this for your holiday treat tray? I really hope so, I know you’ll love it!

Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

  • 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.
  • Pour the white chocolate mixture over dark chocolate fudge.
  • Then drop the reserved dark chocolate mixture on white chocolate mixture.
  • And using a toothpick, swirl the mixture to create beautiful swirled effect.
  • Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy canes on top.
