  • 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
  • 6 oz 170gr bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 6 oz 170gr white chocolate, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract


  • Line 8x8in (20x20cm) baking pan with foil and butter the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • Place the peppermint candy canes in a ziplock bag and crush the candies with a rolling pin.
  • In a double boiler, combine marshmallows, condensed milk and vanilla extract.
  • Melt everything over simmering water, stirring frequently, until smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • When the mixture is nice and smooth, pour half of the mixture into heat-proof bowl and add chopped white chocolate.
  • 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.
  • Pour the most of the dark chocolate mixture into the prepared pan, reserving a few tablespoonfuls.
  • 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.
  • Let the fudge cool and set for few hours, or overnight. Cut into small pieces and serve.


You can make this fudge in 9x13in pan too. They’ll just come out thinner.
